Traffic accidents can be horrific to witness. Thanks to PMDs, that horror is now brought right to our doorstep.

Garnell Glenn Bernard shared this video footage on Facebook, caught on CCTV camera after his child was hit by a PMD travelling at a quoted 17km/h.

The little girl wanders onto the corridor...

Before being collided into by the PMD rider. In the video you can clearly see the the PMD rider was thrown off the device at high speed, as well as the fact that he had plenty of time to slow down, if he was riding at a safe speed that is.

Panic naturally ensues.

And the location of the incident? Right at the corridor of his block.

Thankfully the little girl only suffered a minor injury to her thigh.

Many here should already be familiar with the fact the PMD use has been banned along common HDB areas, but it seems like enforcement is going to be difficult due to their already widespread use.

Watch the full video and share with us what you think below!

Ban. 🤣 

With the 2 month grace period (Sept 1 to Oct 31) for first time offender it will just be a warning.

The CB kia still can ask, "Why can’t I ride here?". That's how aware fxxkers are with the ban.

An e-scooter crashed into a toddler at a void deck on Sunday evening, mere metres from a notice warning users they can no longer ride in common areas of Housing Board blocks.

19yo PMD rider who just couldnt give a damn.

while now it is still not an offence to ride in a void deck,  ridding recklessly or carelessly yes, so the authority should do something to punish this guy, otherwise, we can expect to see similar incidents again........and again.

Where is that planning that our leaders have talked about? It seemed like certain transport related businesses kick start before regulatory measures set in.

Thought rider denied he hit kid but the wall instead?

Apparently the child's father has decided to file a police report about the incident after the PMD rider accused the mother of lying about the incident to reporters. Not exactly the best PR for the PMD cause right now

This rider not just a menace but also no balls to own up his mistake.

    The mad things drivers do to avoid parking charges!

    When there is a will, there is always a way.  This sure rings very true for this particular HDB parking offender as shown in the video posted by SG Road Vigilante. Dated on the 3rd of June, the video is pretty much self-explanatory. While we don't know what prompted the Toyota Prius driver to do that, sharp eyed viewers would have noticed that all that madness was quite unnecessary as the gantry opened up towards the end of the 48 second video. As usual, the comments on the page weren't exactly constructive.. But this one was pretty funny. Watch what this guy does here! 102516826_186940102600538_4929118169282379776_n.mp4

    Park properly otherwise it might bite you back!

    This is why we should always park properly. We were alerted to someone's posts on his facebook page, showing a BMW X6 XDrive35i badly parked at Jurong Point Shopping Center. Like what the photos show, the netizen who is presumed to be driving the Toyota Altis that is parked beside, barely had space to squeeze into his lot. The large BMW SUV had kind of edged into the page owner's lot causing him to be quite pissed.  By parking badly, and of course no thanks to the Altis driver, the BMW owner will be having lots of difficulty getting into his car.  So What do you guys think of this? Is it fair to 'punish' the BMW driver who ill-parked? Or do you think the BMW driver had made an honest mistake as it simply wanted to be further away from the lorry beside it?

    We do not encourage this, but here's how you can ride 'like a boss'

    As the demand for food deliveries increase due to our current circuit breaker situation, it is only natural to see an increase in the amount of bikes fulfilling the food delivery demand.  Check out how this motorcyclist takes in a hard day's of work by riding in a relaxed manner on the road. Spotted by someone on the SLE on the 4th of May, this grabfood rider can be seen in the video with his legs crossed while using his mobile phone simultaneously. This is definitely not the safest way to ride but we doubt he is breaking any laws from doing so. That said, some of the comments by neitzens on SG Road Vigilante's page didn't agree and weren't so kind... What do you guys think? Let us know in the comment box below! 95500445_2129716763840421_303453959922408449_n.mp4

    Youths use Circuit Breaker period to ride PMDs in CTE tunnel!

    With roads pretty much empty under this current semi-lockdown period, some youths have been spotted making use of the empty roads to ride their PMDs. As seen on a facebook page SG Reckless PMD Riders, three youths can be seen in the short Instagram video riding next to each other at high speed in the CTE Tunnel. Admittedly, the clip isn't of the best quality but it does seem like they were doing in excess of 40km/h, well over the speed limits of e-scooter.  Of course, it doesn't matter as no one is allowed to be using their PMDs on the public road.  In fact, they aren't even supposed to be out of their homes at all and going for joyrides! Check out some of the comments on the page. Not suprisingly, they were not very pleasant. SG-Reckless-PMD-Riders-PMD-high-speed-at-CTE-Facebook.mp4
