E-Bike User Travels In Jurong West While Holding Onto Pram, Gets Called Out For Child Endangerment

E-Bike User Gets Backlash For Holding Onto Pram While Travelling In Jurong West

E-bike riders have to ensure they are as responsible as possible while on the road. Not doing so may endanger the lives of those with them, in addition to other motorists.

Such was the case recently in Jurong West, where a netizen spotted an e-bike rider travelling down the street while holding onto a pram.

There was even a second child riding with the man on the bike.

The incident has caused the rider to receive backlash from many on social media.

The video starts by showing a man riding an e-bike while holding onto a pram next to him.

You can clearly see a baby on the pram as it glides down the street at the same speed as the device.

There’s another child riding on the bike too, making the entire situation even more precarious.

The trio continue their journey down the street, heedless of the OP recording them.

Netizens call rider out for dangerous actions

The video has caused the rider to receive a significant amount of backlash on Facebook.

Another netizen said that the rider’s behaviour definitely warranted concern seeing as he’d needlessly endangered the children.

According to the Land Transport Authority (LTA), it is also definitely illegal to do so, as the minimum age for riding pillion is 16.

Hopefully, the rider involved in the incident will take the criticism received from the video as a lesson to refrain from engaging in similar actions in the future.
