The daughter of a Personal Mobility Device (PMD) rider took to social media appealing for information about her father’s accident.

She alleged that her father got into an accident while riding his e-scooter. The man’s daughter also alleged that he had suffered spinal cord damage as a result of the accident.

Along with the information that her father’s accident occurred at Serangoon garden on Sunday (June 30) between 1pm to 5pm, she did not share any other details.

The woman called for passers-by or witnesses to the accident, and she added that her father was in critical condition because of the incident.

Netizens who commented on the post were mostly well-wishers, but there were others who had mixed-feelings about PMD riders.

Earlier this year (April 26), a 39-year-old woman died from her injuries after her electric scooter collided into a bus in Woodlands. The private bus and e-scooter collided at the entrance of a carpark near Admiralty Place.

After 30 June, it is now illegal to ride a personal mobility device (PMD) without a license from the Land Transport Authority (LTA).

PMD users are also liable if they cause or allow another person to ride an unregistered e-scooter on public paths.

If caught riding an unregistered e-scooter on public paths, first-time offenders can be fined up to S$2,000 and jailed for up to three months.
