PMA Doing Food Delivery Caught Travelling at Almost 50kmh on Sengkang West Way

You’ve probably seen a car or two speeding along roads before, but how many of us have seen a Personal Mobility Aid (PMA) speed along the highway?

Well, you’ll be able to say that you have after watching this video.

Just yesterday (10 April), a Grab deliveryman was spotted on his PMA at Sengkang West Way at around 10.05 pm, and was allegedly speeding at around 50km/h.

And before you think he’s just a responsible food deliveryman who wants to get his customer’s food to them while it’s still piping hot, here’s another piece of information.

For those who aren’t aware, the speed limit for PMAs in Singapore is 10km/h.

Additionally, PMAs are only allowed on footpaths and cycling paths in Singapore, and not roads.

Which means that not only was this PMA driver speeding, he wasn’t even supposed to be there in the first place.

The customer probably wouldn’t have ended up getting their food if he got caught by the Land Transport Authority (LTA), yah?

Not His First Time Speeding

And according to the comments section, it apparently isn’t the first time that the man has been caught speeding at places where he shouldn’t be.

Some commenters on the video, which has since garnered over 42,000 views since it was posted yesterday (10 April) night, stated that the man looked “familiar”.

Another commenter also claimed that he was “famous” in the Sengkang area, and that residents in the area frequently saw him behaving in such a manner.

Apart from that, there were also comments that poked fun at how amusing the situation seemed to them, and someone even brought out the age-old “his father’s road” joke.

However, there were also comments that took the incident more seriously and noted how the PMA was travelling even faster than the bus in the next lane, which is definitely a safety hazard by all means.

And of course, there were also Singaporeans who expressed their anger and annoyance at the PMA driver’s irresponsibility, and also questioned if LTA would be taking action based on what was captured in the video.

Authorities Looking Into People Who Use PMA When They Don’t Need Them

It’s unknown if the deliveryman really needs a PMA, but the issue of able-bodied people using PMA has been brought up recently.

Senior Parliamentary Secretary for Transport and chairman of the Active Mobility Advisory Panel (AMAP) Baey Yam Keng said on 15 March during an interview on SPH Media radio station One FM 91.3 that the panel is looking at whether there is a need to implement new rules for PMAs that are becoming a more common sight along our roads.

He said that there have been various complaints from residents across Singapore who have reported that PMAs may be misused by individuals who do not deal with mobility issues.

As such, the panel is also deliberating about whether there should be more restrictive rules regarding which individuals are eligible to use PMAs.
