Youths are taking to the roads on their personal mobility devices (PMDs) despite it being illegal.

A Stomper saw a youth on a PMD with a pillion rider along Punggol Central turning towards Punggol Place on Saturday evening (Oct 21).

Neither of them were wearing helmets.

"Life is precious, kids," he said.

"Not worth putting yourself and other road users at risk of accidents."

Another Stomper alerted Stomp to a video of a group of PMD users posted on @tiagong_sg's Instagram page.

They were seen waiting at a traffic light along Sheares Avenue, near Marina Bay Sands before moving off and making a right turn as a vehicle high-beamed them.

One netizen wrote: "At least they still follow traffic light."

Under the Active Mobility Act, PMDs are not allowed on the road.
