While the public was warned not to charge their PMD/PABs near combustible materials or along escape paths, there is no guarantee that all users will adhere to this. A man and his infant girl were admitted to the hospital following a fire caused by a PMD at Bukit Batok West last October.

With the rise in popularity of Power Assisted Bicycles (PABs) and Personal Mobility Devices (PMDs), fire outbreaks due to these devices have also been on the rise.
