these have caused fire, harm and danger. I cannot see why they continue to be allowed on the road.

Town councils can set and enforce own rules on PMD use at void decks: Lam Pin Min

Anything short of a complete ban will be useless. Now this lam shows that he is very very short sighted.

Banning e-scooters won't address lack of graciousness
Quote
I understand the calls for a ban on e-scooters, but will this really solve the problems we have today, which have been partly brought about by inconsiderate behaviour and a lack of graciousness? If we were to ban everything that has the potential to harm, the list will be never-ending.

This idiot is missing the point completely, not about graciousness. It’s all about someone getting badly hurt, some needing lifelong medical care. He will only change his position when he or his love ones get seriously hurt by escooter.

If LTA is serious about tackling this issue, there are many ways that it can do this - restricting the speed to walking speed so that one does not get hurt to the extent that hospitalisation is needed - this protects both rider and pedestrian, licensing riders, creating dedicated pavements for cyclist and e scooter riders... many things can be done before someone meets with a fatal accident. The suggested solutions does cater to both riders and pedestrians and strike a balance between needs. Frankly, until some VIP's relatives get hurt, I do not see them hearing the calls of the ordinary citizens.

Sounds good on paper. But it wont work. Escooters can easily fitted with more powerful motor and battery.
Only a complete ban can protect pedestrians.
lets pray no pregnant woman is knocked down and a baby is lost as a result.

Well right now, there is nothing done about this issue. Implementation needs to be enforced and strict penalites imposed so that there is a deterrence.

Heard some uncle arrested for going 120kmph...not sure if fake news or not. The beginning of the end of escooters is coming for sure.

I have a pile of stuff that pushes out squiggly waveforms from smaller squiggly waveforms that sometimes come from 1's and 0's.
It's wonderful to behold as long as you don't let the magic smoke out.

Life is short! Enjoy the music while it plays, when it stops, there might be a chair for you...or  maybe not.

In the world of shared responsibilities, lta just like agc and nus board committee should also take blame for not putting personal and public safety on  top of the list. The education minister has shamelessly refused to act too.
So far they all have denied any responsibilities. Shameful and despicable.

They are getting more and more stupid by the day. Can’t imagine the country is run by these so called ministers self proclaimed leaders.
