Recently, the banning of micro-mobility vehicles on the road, such as e-bikes and e-scooters by the Ministry of Transport has sparked major discussions among road users. At the state level, Perak has also announced a similar ruling, whereby the use of micro-mobility vehicles including e-bikes are prohibited.

According to Kampar’s IPD Traffic Enforcement Division, vehicles like Personal Mobility Devices and Personal Mobility Aids are banned on the road. The penalty includes not more than an RM2000 fine or jail for up to 6 months.

“At this period of time, Kampar IPD Traffic Enforcement Division will conduct one-week-long advocacy in Kampar district to educate and give awareness to the public about the dangers of using Micro-mobility Vehicles on the road. Enforcement actions will start being implemented after that period,” the statement posted on 1 May 2022 says.

Along with the announcement, most university students are confused over whether they can still use their e-bikes around the housing area or inside the campus. One particular response from the student representative council (SRC) of Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR) Kampar Campus has left students with even more questions.

According to the infographics posted by the SRC UTAR Kampar Campus on 5 May, students are allowed to ride e-bikes to school, but they need to “push the e-bike to cross the main road”. Furthermore, in answering the question of whether can students cycle on the main road if the e-bike included pedals, the SRC said, “No, as long as the battery and motor engine are still on your e-bike, it is considered illegal”.

Many students find the response ridiculous, and most comments also criticised the council for not handling the issue professionally.

The next day, the council released a statement to apologise for its negligence in clarifying the issue. To prevent students from breaching the rules and regulations issued by the transport division, the local authorities have advised the students to either move the e-bikes manually to cross the main road, or to remove the battery and engine from the e-bike.

So, what do you guys think of the whole situation? Share your thoughts with us in the comments!
