Segar Road or Cigarette Road?

A shirtless man was caught on camera throwing the cigarette from the 13th storey of an HDB block at Segar Road in Bukit Panjang on Sept 6 at 12.40pm.

Stomper C shared a video of the "botak uncle" smoking at the block.

In the 41-second video, the man is first seen holding a lit cigarette over the railing. After a few final puffs, he casually flicked away the cigarette and walked away.

Under the Environmental Public Health Act, stiff penalties can be meted out for high-rise littering offences.

The maximum fine for each littering act is $2,000 for the first court conviction, $4,000 for the second conviction and $10,000 for the third or subsequent conviction.

The court may also issue a Corrective Work Order in addition to any court fines meted out.

The video has been sent to the National Environment Agency.
