Singapore And France Ban Scooters From Sidewalks

ScootSignAfter many accidents and at least one fatality, the city-state popular tourist destination now forbids riding e-scooters on sidewalks. New enforcements say “Those caught riding e-scooters on footpaths will be liable for a fine of $1,472 (SGD$2000) and, or, jail up to three months.

Scooters are no longer allowed on sidewalks in France, but with more moderate fines for violators at just $150 (135 euros). Many U.S. cities already have bans, but as you can see in the photo, some speeders ignore the law and scoot cluelessly over the sidewalk signs and into hapless hikers. http://www.cnn.com/travel/article/singapore-e-scooter-ban-intl-hnk/index
