There are five principles I bear in mind when it comes to thinking about e-scooters and other personal mobility devices (PMDs).
First, mobility (or, the ease and ability with which one can go from Point A to Point B) can make or break a city.
Second, walking is a fundamental human right.
Third, Singapore needs more options for environmentally sustainable, affordable and convenient transportation.
Fourth, cities have been shaped around cars to the detriment of the above three principles.
And lastly, to maintain a high quality of life, the status quo for mobility (in Singapore) is not good enough.
