The Government is handling the PMD issue very badly.

For a country that prides itself on law and order, the Government is handling the PMD issue very badly.

Ok, so some people rely on PMDs as a form of transport. In that case, as a motorised vehicle, they should be on roads, with riders needing to learn the Highway Code and wear helmets.

No motorised form of transport should be allowed on pedestrian paths, not least scooters that can travel up to 25 km/h.

Otherwise treat them as toys, like those hover-boards, but then they shouldn’t be capable of going more than say 15-18 km/h which is the speed of many of those electric hover-boards we see ridden by kids.

In addition, those professional cyclists on racing bikes should also be taken off pedestrian and shared pathways . They pose the same kind of hazards to not only leisure cyclists (who cycle slower than people walk), but to pedestrians too.

  • problem of pap group think:

    look at lky clown. is he capable? we say he is utterly hopeless.

    if the top is so ffffingly useless, what to expect of the bottom?

    that is why every ffffing policy pap comes out either has S$ involved or defies logic.

    even a dumb pap calvin cheng can spot the stupidity. it means it is truly bad. and it is really, truly, bad.

    I thought driving licence Class 1 is meant for riding this type of vehicle?

    All users of power driven vehicles should have a Class 1 license.

    Toys vehicles used by children are usually self powered.

  • HDB flats depreciate to ZERO:

    PAP is reactive instead of proactive. Not rockets science to foresee allowing heavy and powerful PMDs (even bicycles) on sidewalks will hurt/kill pedestrians. Another compelling reason for REGIME CHANGE.

  • Take Effective Actions:

    Pinky seems to just switch off (maybe busy with screwing Oppo) and perform Auto Pilot and let the LTA elites do their things. Maybe we should go on the Streets to make our voice heard.

    Whats the point of raising the age to 16 to ride the E Scooters and making them take a written test before they can ride the E Scooters ? So What ?

    What will make Dr Lam take the correct measures ? Maybe when his relatives got injured or killed by an E Scooters.

    Before E Scooters appear, food deliveries were done on motor bikes or bicycles. So food can still be delivered without the E Scooters. At most of the MRT stations there were very few E Scooters parked there. So the last mile theory is nonsense.

    The correct actions should be
    1) Ban them in Spore
    2) Allow them but go on the roads.
    3) Make sure these people buy Insurance to compensate the injured or for death.
    4) Make helmets compulsory.
    5) Attend Comfort for Theory and Safe Riding Lessons.
    6) Jail anybody five years for modifying the E Scooters to go faster.
    7) No passengers allowed for the E Scooters.
    8) Minimum age 25 years old.

    Not only that. If you have good grade, you can go around ‘toughing’ girls in public & let go likely. Two sets of rules – one for the suckers (to be run over & davinded), another for the elites & potential elites (the sue until your drop pants plaintiffs). Welcone to the country with the most cocked citizens in the world.

  • What do i think ?:

    Agreed.

    To make matter worst, they claim they want to help non ul2272 pmds to change earlier. Only registered Pmds entitled to the S$100 before the defined dateline. Non registered will not entitled.

    The process i find it discriminating , registered or not. Owners bought the pmds with their hard earned pocket monies. Its not free present from the gov nor is it 50% , 60 % or more subsidized by the gov or public organisation bodies.

    Anyway they screwed up on the process. First they wanted registration. Next within a very short time they impose policy that non ul2272 will have to be obsolete by a define date line. And therefore many owners never register as its going to be obsoleted.

    Even the inbecile calvin cheng dare to speak against pap wrong policy. What does it go to prove then? Voters think for yourself. We need to VTO this self serving government in what ever policies they implement as they always do it at the expense of the citizens.

  • Ban pmd:

    Why was PMD allowed ? Is LTA or Khaw responsible or credit they take debit is ours?

    If LTA did not allow pmd until proper sound policies in place, the aunty would not have died.

  • a PG:

    Agree with Calvin on his article that PMDs being motorised vehicles should be moving on the roads instead of footpaths, walkways, open spaces, etc, meant for human beings walking on 2 legs. If PMD riders are on the roads, they are the ones who are risking themselves rather than risking the true innocent pedestrians on walkways.

    Am sad that white elites being paid $$$millions in salaries (highest paid politicians in the world) and still unable to solve these PMD life-threatening problems on innocent lives. Wonder how many lives are lost will they wake up their ideas. Alrdy one death from PMD incident is too many, as our ppl always view that one NS death is too many to swallow.

    Comparing cigarette vs PMD and FTs vs Sinkies, which one is more critical? From our observations, anything that is generating fast $$$$ for the current ruling party, it is legal. CC should remain silent and enjoy the displeasing environment that his boss had created for him. HOHOHO…jing-ho(very good).

  • on the footpath / pavement:

    //Am sad that white elites being paid $$$millions in salaries (highest paid politicians in the world) and still unable to solve these PMD life-threatening problems on innocent lives.//

    the white idiots are never the same (holding the same perspective) as the average people ? many times, they have sent a clear signal on this (millions dollars pay + anything less than $500k are mediocre) ?

    many of the higher white idiots + higher gang don’t get to walk on the footpath / pavement as much as daft sinkies facing the greater possibility of getting injured by PMD ? So they do not experience the same level of ‘pain’ (attracting a greater concern) as the average sinkies ?

    the white idiots will only wake up faster and will only listen to concrete language when more people VTO ?

  • Elderly right on pathway:

    The pedestrian pathway is reserved for the pedestrian. There are some many evidence showed that accidents are due to PMD and cyclist. To avoid the accidents why the government do not construct a separate pathway for PMD and cyclist? If this is not possible, then mandatory stop the PMD and cyclist on the pedestrian pathway is necessary. Why it takes government such a long time to decide what to do?

  • limited space / infrastructure:

    //The pedestrian pathway is reserved for the pedestrian. There are some many evidence showed that accidents are due to PMD and cyclist. To avoid the accidents why the government do not construct a separate pathway for PMD and cyclist?//

    why ? path dependency ? constrained by existing limited space / infrastructure (already built up) alongside hundreds / thousands of kilometers of pavements ?
    hence, no choice ? but white idiots to “push the burden” onto pedestrian and indoctrinate them repeatedly into acceptance and resignation lor (test of willpower on who can tahan longer lor) ?

    Just like when LTA dragged their feet on the law to mandatorily install seat belts in all mini school buses when only after several kindergarten children died in road accidents who would have been saved if fastened with a seat belt. That delay ? – Its all about costs, Money !!
