WILL I GET IN TROU­BLE IF SOME­ONE WALKED INTO ME WHILE I WAS TRAV­EL­LING WITHIN THE SPEED LIMIT ON MY E-SCOOTER?

Men's Health (Singapore) - - ASK -

Yes, it is pos­si­ble to get into trou­ble even if you fol­low the speed limit. Un­der the law, (the Ac­tive Mo­bil­ity Act 2017) there are other fac­tors which may re­sult in an e-scooter driver be­ing re­spon­si­ble for caus­ing in­jury to a pedes­trian. These in­clude, amongst oth­ers, fail­ing to im­me­di­ately stop your e-scooter when the ac­ci­dent oc­curs, fail­ing to give im­me­di­ate as­sis­tance to the vic­tim, and/or not giv­ing one’s per­sonal par­tic­u­lars to the vic­tim. The driver risks be­ing fined up to $3,000 and/or re­ceiv­ing up to 12 months’ jail time.
