From 1 July 2020, only UL2272 motorised PMDs are allowed on cycling paths. Non-UL2272 e-scooters that were registered with LTA have been automatically de-registered (as announced earlier on 7 October 2019). Non-UL2272 motorised PMDs are a fire risk, and should be properly and safely disposed of. If a non-UL2272 motorised PMD causes a fire that results in property damage or death, criminal investigations may be conducted.
LTA will continue to work with HDB, Town Councils, and SCDF to remind the public to dispose of their non-UL2272 motorised PMDs. LTA will continue to study further measures to manage the population of non-compliant active mobility devices in Singapore.
Owners of non-UL2272 motorised PMDs must ensure that the device is disposed of in a safe and responsible manner. Owners may safely dispose of their devices at any of the e-waste recyclers specified in the table below. Please note that a fee may be imposed by the recyclers.

It is an offence to ride a non-UL2272 motorised PMD on public paths. Offenders may face a fine of up to $10,000 and/or up to 6 months’ jail term for riding a non-compliant PMD. For riding an unregistered e-scooter, the rider will be guilty of an additional offence and if convicted, face a fine of up to $2,000 and/or up to 3 months’ jail term.
 Eligible e-scooter owners who have disposed their e-scooters at the LTA-designated disposal points before 31 December 2020 and meet all terms and conditions for the incentive would have received the early disposal incentive before 28 February 2021.
