We refer to forum letters expressing safety concerns about the behaviour of some irresponsible personal mobility device (PMD) users. The Land Transport Authority (LTA) will not hesitate to take action against PMD users who threaten public safety. The Active Mobility Act (AMA) establishes clear rules on speed limits and device specifications, and empowers us to take enforcement action where necessary. Since the AMA was introduced in May 2018, LTA has recorded more than 3,700 active mobility offences. For more details, please refer to the attached reply.
