SINGAPORE: Two electric scooter users caught speeding and riding recklessly have had their e-scooters seized, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said in a Facebook post on Wednesday (Oct 19).

The offenders were caught in separate LTA operations on Oct 15 and 18. The first rider was found speeding and riding recklessly on the road and across a zebra crossing at the junction of Yishun Avenue 2 and Avenue 3. The second rider was caught at Upper Aljunied Road.

The LTA said it conducted several operations over the past weeks after receiving complaints of e-scooter users riding recklessly at high speed along footpaths and on roads.

It also reminded e-scooter users not to ride their devices on the road, adding that it will not hesitate to take enforcement action against riders found doing so.

The LTA said earlier this month that more than 700 cyclists, e-bike and e-scooter users have been caught for reckless riding and received warnings.
