A third boy in a navy T-shirt is seen sitting on the board of the e-scooter, in front of the one steering it.

In the video, they are seen zooming across a zebra crossing along Hougang Avenue 6 without giving way to pedestrians.

They are then caught beating a red light while turning to Hougang Avenue 10.

It is unclear when this incident happened.

Under the Active Mobility Act, there is a speed limit of 10km/h for e-scooters on footpaths. They are not allowed on roads.
