Bo liao or necessary? Video of litterbug driver throwing tissue on road sparks heated debate

A driver was caught throwing tissue out of the car window while waiting at a traffic light.

In a video posted on Facebook page Beh Chia Lor - Singapore Road, credited to Dickson Phang, a white BMW car can be seen waiting for the traffic light to turn green.

While waiting, the driver of the BMW winds down the window and throws a piece of tissue out of it onto the road.

It is unclear where the incident took place. According to the time stamp on the video, it took place at around 6pm on Mar 3.

Comments on the video questioned the point of uploading the video, as it was just a piece of tissue.

Others argued that such bad habits needed to be nipped in the bud - a piece of tissue today might be an aluminium can tomorrow, which might pose a great hazard to motorcyclists on the road.

A user pointed out that if every motorist were to follow the BMW driver’s actions, Singapore’s roads would be filled with litter.
