A total of 38 Personal Mobility Device (PMD) errant riders have been caught since the start of this year, more than the 22 offenders caught in the same period last year, said the Land Transport Authority (LTA) on Monday (15 January).

The number includes 11 riders caught in the vicinity of Loyang Drive on Monday morning, who will face higher fines in a new penalty scheme that kicked in on the same day.

First announced on 2 January, the scheme, for instance, will see first-time offenders caught on local and major roads fined $300 and $500, respectively. This is $100 more than the fines imposed under the previous scheme.
