A video of a man riding an e-scooter in the middle lane of the Pan-Island Expressway went viral on Sunday (Nov 26).

Stompers TanRobert, KC, Kannan, Lex, Ah Boy, Dean, Rashid and several others alerted Stomp to the video that was circulating on Facebook and WhatsApp.

A photo of the man being talked to by a police and Land Transport Authority (LTA) officer promptly followed.

In a statement on their Facebook page, the LTA said that at around 9am to 9.30am that day, LTA enforcement officers and the TP nabbed the rider who was riding illegally on the roads.

He was caught along the PIE, before Eng Neo exit.

"The non-compliant Personal Mobility Device (PMD) has been impounded and the rider is currently assisting in our investigations," it said.

The LTA also reminded the public that it is illegal to ride PMDs on the road and doing so "endangers both the riders and road users.

They added that they will continue to conduct regular enforcement operations against errant PMD users.
