All e-scooters will now have to be registered so as to prevent reckless behavior. Just in 9 months in 2017, there were 110 accidents that involved e-scooters.
The new law will be enforced from the second half of 2018 onwards. E-scooters users will be required to provide their personal particulars and paste permanent identification stickers on their rides. There will be requirements that have to be met for the e-scooters, such as a maximum weight of 20kg and speed no more than 25km/h.
E-scooters owners who failed to register their devices will face a fine up to $2,000 and a three-month jail sentence.
