In this digital age, where surveillance is ubiquitous, a bizarre incident caught on CCTV has left netizens baffled. A man, seemingly oblivious to the watchful eyes of technology, was seen on CCTV footage dated 4 September at about 5.55pm, urinating by the side of the road outside a landed home along Novena.
The world is his toilet
The minute-long video footage, shared extensively on Facebook, documents a rather unusual sequence of events.
It all begins with a white private-hire vehicle reversing and coming to a halt in front of a residence at Goldhill landed estate.
The driver, apparently devoid of any inhibitions, casually walks to the back of his car, unzips his pants and proceeds to urinate on the potted plants along the side of the road.
The video, accompanied by a caption expressing shock and disbelief, drew immediate attention.
The netizen who posted the footage on social media questioned the man’s actions, asking, “Uncle, why do you park and then pee openly in front of people’s houses? Surely you know that CCTV cameras are everywhere now.”
Under the Environmental Public Health Act, urinating or defecating “in or upon any street, arcade, vacant land, river, canal, ditch, drain, or watercourse or in any place to which the public has access except in any sanitary convenience provided for such purpose” is considered an offense.
The penalty for such an offense can be significant, with fines reaching up to $1,000 for a first offense. For repeat offenders, the consequences become even more severe, with fines escalating to $2,000 for the second offense and a whopping $5,000 for the third offense.
- But the CCTV is pointing the wrong way, should capture his birdy. As Tan Kin Lian says, there are no signages for toilets.
- Uncle, come on la we dont live in 70s or 80s..now everywhere camera..anyways really needs guts to do it
- Throw face. His father mother taught him that?
