SINGAPORE: A viral video in which a man was seen publicly urinating outside a landed property in Singapore, has prompted outrage and widespread condemnation online. The video was originally posted on Facebook by the SG Road Vigilante page on Tuesday (5 Sept).
The footage depicts a man exiting a white car and popping the trunk of his vehicle, presumably to obstruct the view of pedestrians. He proceeds to relieve himself in broad daylight, before closing the trunk, getting into his car and driving off – as though nothing happened.
According to the SG Road Vigilante page, the incident unfolded at approximately 5:56 pm on Monday (4 Sept). The administrators of the page questioned why the individual chose to park his car outside someone else’s residence and then engaged in such behaviour.
Urinating in public places is a punishable offence in Singapore. First-time offenders can face a fine of up to $1,000. Subsequent offences carry even more substantial penalties, with second-time offenders liable to pay fines of up to $2,000, and third-time offenders facing fines of up to $5,000.
The incident has triggered concerns about the blatant disregard for societal norms and laws. Singaporeans online have slammed such behaviour, urging authorities to take action against the individual involved.
