Under the law, personal mobility devices (PMDs) such as e-scooters and hoverboards are not allowed on the roads

Under the Road Traffic Act, anyone found using non-compliant vehicles may be charged in court, and fined up to $2,000 or jailed up to three months for the first offence. For subsequent offences, the offender may be fined up to $5,000 or jailed up to six months upon conviction. The non-compliant vehicle could also be seized.

LTA reminds cyclists and personal mobility device users that they must stay below the speed limits of 15km/h when riding on footpaths, and 25km/h on cycling paths.
