As part of our regular enforcement, LTA conducts periodic enforcement operations against the riding of non-compliant Power Assisted Bicycles (PABs) and unregistered vehicles on roads.
During one of our operations last week, our enforcement officers stopped a rider who had been riding his device, with a motor capable of propelling it up to 80km/h, along Woodlands Street 83 and Woodlands Ave 4.
The non-compliant device has since been impounded, and the rider is currently assisting LTA with investigations.
We would like to remind everyone that only LTA-approved PABs affixed with an LTA seal, and in compliance with the following rules http://bit.ly/2hXQleE, are allowed for use on the roads. LTA will continue to conduct regular enforcement against errant PAB riders and unregistered vehicle drivers, to ensure the safety of all users.
Let us all stay safe this holiday season and ride into a better 2017 ahead!
