Following a safety review, we have decided to ban e-scooters from all footpaths with immediate effect. This move is a necessary one to ensure pedestrian safety as incidents involving errant e-scooter riders continue to rise in spite of our heightened enforcement and education efforts.

This move will not affect those on motorised wheelchairs and Personal Mobility Aids. These devices, together with bicycles, can continue to be used on footpaths.

E-scooters will only be allowed on cycling paths and Park Connector Networks henceforth.

To give e-scooter riders time to adjust, our enforcement approach will be to issue warnings to those caught riding on footpaths until 31 December. However, egregious cases will still be subject to regulatory action during this time.

However, from 1 January 2020, strict enforcement action will be taken against those caught riding an e-scooter on footpaths. Offenders are liable for a fine up to $2,000 and/or jail up to two months.
