With Personal Mobility Devices (PMDs) all the rage nowadays, the dangers posed by riders of PMDs have increased as well - not just for themselves, but for others.

Last Friday, an electric scooter (e-scooter) rider was fined $2,000 for causing hurt to a cyclist in a negligent act that endangered personal safety.

Then-university student Koo Boon Kuan had swerved into cyclist Shi Heng Soon when his mobile phone rang on 22 Sep 2016. Shi suffered a broken right index finger during the accident.

43-year-old Shi had been riding in a straight line with a group of cyclists around 9pm, on Changi Coast Road. Koo, 26, was riding in the opposite direction on an e-scooter with two others.

When Koo’s phone rang, he got distracted and served into Shi, who fell off his bicycle. A 59-year-old woman then collided with the bicycle and e-scooter, and was injured.
