DON'T THROW CIGARETTE BUTTS OUT OF THE CAR WINDOW, NEA COULD ISSUE $2,000 FINE IF PEOPLE SABO YOU

Drivers who have the bad habit of flicking your cigarette butts out of windows better beware. In early November 2017, one such car owner was shocked to receive a letter from NEA which demanded they name the driver who was driving the vehicle at the time of offence. NEA with the help of LTA took enforcement action on a tip-off from the public which alleged that the said driver threw his cigarette butt out of the car window along Tampines Avenue 5. If the driver did not cooperate with NEA, he could be subject to a fine as high as $2,000 over this littering offence.

Wang, who is a construction worker, had been working in Singapore for at least five years, triggered the security alert on 2 April after he left a blue luggage bag unattended at the far end of the train platform at Hougang MRT station. The court understands that the luggage was collected from his friend at Buangkok Crescent earlier that day before he headed for Hougang MRT station.
