CONSIDER MANDATORY CANING TO DETER CHECKPOINT BREACHES

Perhaps the penalties should be reviewed, as a jail term and relatively low fines appear to no longer be a deterrent. Living standards have improved over the years and those convicted of such offences may consider the financial penalties a pittance. And those who cannot pay may not mind doing time, which is a waste of our resources. It may be timely for the authorities to consider including mandatory caning in the penalty, as is the case for illegal immigrants. This would send the right signal that the law means business.

This boils down to either incompetency or a total lack of transparency on the part of ICA. It is time DPM Teo Chee Hean come clean with Singaporeans.
