Banning e-scooters on footpaths will not solve the problem in its entirety. 

To address the public's safety concerns, higher penalties and jail time should be imposed on errant riders, as a strong deterrent for other errant riders. The media should publicise the punishments of errant riders to instill fear among the black sheeps in our community. There is no justice for the majority of law-abiding riders, who has to suffer the consequences of errant riders, especially for food delivery riders who struggle to make ends meet. A simple ban on footpaths will not solve the problem of irresponsible behaviour. Rather, it is a matter of disciplinary actions that should be enforced to address this major issue. 

According to LTA's master plan 2040: "We want a Singapore that is a 45-Minute City with 20-Minute Towns in 2040. All journeys to the nearest neighbourhood centre using Walk-Cycle-Ride modes of transport will take less than 20 minutes". To achieve that goal, e-scooters can ease congestion in the public transport system, amid tighter land constraints. It provides greater employment opportunities, and promotes a greener society. As LTA seeks ideas to realise Singapore's car-lite dream, limiting e-scooters will only bring our country one step backwards. There would be less convenience, connected and fast access to good jobs, education and amenities closer to homes.

Thank you LTA, for encouraging community feedback and ideas. We look forward to partnering with you to overcome the challenges in our society.
