As we’re all conscious of, Singapore is extraordinarily strict on the subject of legislation enforcement and there’s no such factor known as kasi chan there. This man can completely vouch for it as he was slapped with a summon for the slightest mistake he made.
On 7 April, a Malaysian man was issued a tremendous value SG$200 (approx. RM600) after he was caught smoking on the designated space. Nevertheless, he had one leg positioned exterior the yellow line. This incident passed off in Orchard Street at 5.59pm, in response to China Press.
It was understood that the fine was issued by an auxiliary police officer who apparently, didn’t give a chance to the man to put his leg back into the smoking zone. As such, the man took a picture of his ticket and shared it online to warn others about how strict the lurking enforcers are.
The post received mixed reactions among netizens with some pinning the blame on the smoker, while others reckoned the officer could’ve given him a warning first since he was memang in the designated smoking zone.
“The officer probably needed to hit his quota before going off work and to get a bonus at the end of the year. His hands are tied actually,” a netizen said.
“This has to be the most expensive smoking break ever in the world. The man should’ve been more careful with where he’s stepping although a little compassion from the officer wouldn’t hurt!” another netizen commented.
