Fires caused by PMDs. Is LTA compromising on PMDs to achieve car-lite?

PMDs have been in the news for causing fire. Every now and then, we hear about accidents caused by PMDs.

https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news...cuated-9879846

I get the feeling the LTA is not doing a proper job regulating PMDs. Car-lite goal is a major KPI (Key performance indicator) for LTA. Hitting this KPI will mean promotion and bonuses. I hope LTA will not compromise safety for the sake of hitting car-lite. Same goes for regulation on bicycle sharing. Don't selfishly pursue KPI at the expense of bicycle littering and bicycle safety around Singapore.

Encouraging usage of PMDs will help us achieve car-lite. This is ok but LTA should not take short-cuts like relaxing regulation on PMDs so that usage of PMDs can grow faster. Public safety should take priority over selfish career goals.

PMD and bicycle safety should be part of their KPIs. Cancel their bonuses for the increase in incidents.
