The Government’s Active Mobility Advisory Panel (AMAP) guidelines state that personal mobility devices (PMDs) – a category of motorised devices that includes e-scooters – should not be used on roads. They are allowed on footpaths, cycling paths and shared paths. AMAP guidelines state that PMDs should not be capable of travelling faster than 25kmh.
The LTA maintains a list of non-compliant devices on its website.
The recommendations pertain to the following areas:
• Types of device to be allowed on footpaths, shared paths and cycling paths;
• Rules and code of conduct for users; and
• Criteria for the types of device to be allowed in public spaces.
Please refer to the Annexes for details on the above recommendations.
