A Stomper was alarmed at the "reckless" behaviour displayed by a GrabFood delivery rider at Pasir Ris on Saturday (Nov 16).

He shared with Stomp videos taken from his vehicle's in-car camera of the personal mobility device (PMD) rider turning in to a carpark along Pasir Ris Drive 6.

In the footage, the rider is first seen suddenly stopping in the middle of the lane to look at his phone.

He narrowly avoids getting hit by a motorcyclist turning in to the carpark.

He then scoots his PMD slowly towards the gantry while using his phone, unperturbed by a car approaching on his right side.

The rider subsequently dashes under the carpark gantry arm just seconds before it comes down.

He continues to ride forward without stopping for pedestrians crossing the road ahead.

One of them raises his hands as the rider passing just inches in front of him.

He then slows down and hogs the road in front of the Stomper as he continues on his journey.

"This GrabFood delivery man couldn't care less about road safety and pedestrian safety," said the Stomper.

"He pretty much owns the road.

"This reckless PMD rider is just one of many I have witnessed riding like there are no laws anymore.

"The strict and orderly Singapore roads I used to know are looking very loose and weak now.

"The main idea of training and releasing safe riders and drivers on the road has not changed.

"So why can't these apply to PMD riders?"

Under the Active Mobility Act, e-scooters are not allowed on roads.

They are also banned from footpaths and are only allowed on cycling paths, shared paths and Park Connectors islandwide. These paths have a speed limit of 25kmh.

Those caught flouting the rules can be fined up to $2,000 and/or jailed for up to three months if convicted.
