E-scooter rider shows just how little respect he has for his life

An e-scooter rider was caught on camera risking his safety by beating a red light at a traffic junction along Tanglin Road.

In the video of what happened posted on ROADS.sg, the driver who recorded what happened can first be seen stopping at a red light.

Shortly after, the e-scooter rider whizzed past the left of his or her car and beat the red light.

He did so just as drivers were beginning to accelerate across the junction.

As the rider approached a pedestrian crossing, he had to swerve the personal mobility device to avoid hitting a person who was crossing the road.

In Singapore, e-scooters are not permitted on roads, and must be ridden on pavements.
