We refer to the ST Forum letter “All PMDs should be electronically tagged” dated 3 July by Mr Andrew Seow. We thank Mr Seow for his suggestions. As many electric-scooters (e-scooters) are purchased online, it is not feasible to embed electronic tags into e-scooters at sale. Any means of identifying e-scooters has to be done through a registration regime. For more details, please refer to the attached reply.
