E-scooter riders made the news again. Unfortunately, for nothing good.
In case you didn’t know, e-scooter riders don’t have a good reputation in Singapore. They are seen as the latest troublemakers on the streets of Singapore.
And recently, another e-scooter incident made the news.
But before that, let’s look at an accident that involved bigger vesicles: buses. Public bus, in fact.

Man Tells E-Scooter Rider To Slow Down, Allegedly Gets Beaten By Instead
On 7 Jun 2018, Shin Min Daily News reported on yet another e-scooter incident. Jermaine Ang Shi Min took to Facebook to tell the world about what happened to her father-in-law on 5 Jun.
He saw a 16-year-old teenager riding his e-scooter at high speeds, so he told him to slow down. The teenager responded aggressively, using vulgarities on her father-in-law while saying he’ll call his father (strawberrified?).
And he did.
When the rider’s father arrived in a white mini van, he allegedly punched him immediately, causing him to blank out for a few seconds. They continued to punch and kick him while he was lying on the floor.
When a passer-by stepped forward to stop them, the father-son duo allegedly fled the scene in the white mini bus.
Her father-in-law suffered a deep cut on his left ear. He required 10 stitches and his medical fees came out to be $2,000.
Later, a screenshot of a WhatsApp message, allegedly sent by the teenage e-scooter rider was uploaded online.
The teenager alleged that the old man was shouting “insensibly” at them, and he “accidentally swung” his right hand towards the old man’s face.
Because he felt the old man was being disrespectful.
He claimed that as the old man was not injured, his father told him to walk off to avoid creating more trouble.
At the end of the day, the old man decided not to pursue the matter further. They felt that he was just a boy and doesn’t deserve to go to jail.
