'IPPT gold runners' chase after PMD users during secret operation in Punggol

A joint enforcement operation in Punggol Town on Friday night (May 17) saw 11 personal mobility devices (PMD) impounded.

More than 20 offences including speeding and using non-compliant devices were also detected during the operation, said the Land Transport Authority (LTA) in a Facebook post on May 18.

The operation involved more than 60 plainclothes officers from the Singapore Police Force and National Parks Board, as well as LTA's Active Mobility Enforcement Officers (AMEOs).

Of the 11 devices impounded, one weighed close to 60kg, which is nearly three times the weight limit.

Stomp understands that a video posted by Facebook user Ryan Genesis shows part of the enforcement operation.

In the video captioned 'IPPT gold runner', officers can be seen chasing after PMD users on foot.

The 20-second video has garnered almost 100,000 views and over 1,200 shares to date.

LTA also said in its Facebook post that there were 3,700 active mobility offences detected from May 1, 2018 to April 30 this year.

The authority added: "We will not tolerate those who disregard public safety and have been ramping up our enforcement efforts."
