Cycle, Scoot and Ride Considerately
Our paths and roads are shared spaces. We should consider the safety of our fellow travellers, no matter whether we drive, walk, cycle or ride active mobility devices.
LTA’s vision for a car-lite nation is not only about providing the amenities to support walking, cycling and riding, but also building a culture of courtesy and respect for fellow commuters.
Active Mobility Act (AMA)
The Active Mobility Act (AMA) came into force on May 2018, providing a set of rules and code of conduct to enable safer sharing of public paths among various users. Active mobility devices governed under the AMA include:
- Power-Assisted Bicycles (PAB)
- Personal Mobility Devices (PMDs): Kick-scooters, electric scooters, hoverboards, unicycles, etc.
- Personal Mobility Aids (PMAs): Wheelchairs, motorised wheelchairs or mobility scooters which are designed to carry an individual who is unable to walk or has walking difficulties.
The AMA also provides LTA with legislative and enforcement powers to regulate the sale of PMDs, PABs and PMAs.
