Today, the Ministry of Transport Malaysia just released a statement about the usage of micro-mobility vehicles. It appears that certain micro-mobility vehicles such as electric scooters are already banned on the road.

The statements referenced the recent controversial Mat Lajak case which has tightened the ban further as a means to reduce the danger for road users. Under the Road Traffic Rules 2021, the ban was already effective since 17 December 2021 (not that we knew about) and has listed out the types of micro-mobility vehicles that are banned.

According to Datuk Seri IR. DR. Wee Ka Siong, mopeds, personal mobility aids and personal mobility devices (electric scooters, internal combustion engine power or human power) are not allowed on the road. Bicycle riders must also abide by the regulations under the 1987 Road Transport Act (Act 333) and under the 1959 Road Traffic Rules.

However, electric bicycles that fulfil the MS2514: Electric Bicycles (Electric Pedal Assisted Bicycles) Specification can be used on the road. That being said, the Transport Minister also mentioned that local authorities can plan and construct road infrastructure for micro-mobility vehicles (like bicycle lanes) that steers clear away from the main road.

The Malaysian Road Transport Department (JPJ) and the police will begin enforcing the ban starting today onwards. Those who are spotted using micro-mobility vehicles on the main roads can be prosecuted under Act 333. Stay safe and stay tuned for more trending tech news at TechNave.com.
