Sharael Taha on Land Transport Authority of Singapore (Amendment) Bill

(Updated: )

Electric vehicles can bring many benefits but Singapore must be ready to use EVs and their supporting infrastructure like charging points safely, MP Sharael Taha told Parliament on Tuesday (May 11). He pointed out that EVs involve new technologies and nascent safety standards. Even their speed and immense acceleration could pose challenges for road safety. Mr Sharael said Singapore must build expertise for an entirely EV population and to regulate their use; this could be an opportunity to upskill workers from other industries like aerospace and oil and gas.
