Singapore is a hot city country. Gum sticking to sidewalks was a public nuisance and expensive to clean up. They also had a law forbidding people have standing water under flowerpots. I don't know if that still exists but police could go into homes and fine anybody breaking the law. Obviously there to fight mosquitoes and malaria. Germany, yeah, dangerous to stop on the no speed limit autobahn.

The Gum Law is Great, the United States should try it for a while, just look under any table in any restaurant, and those black spots on sidewalks is usually gum some nasty ignorant person has spit out on the sidewalk rather than put the chewed gum in a trash can .

"Ignorantia juris non excusat or ignorantia legis neminem excusat (Latin for "ignorance of the law excuses not" and "ignorance of law excuses no one" respectively) is a legal principle holding that a person who is unaware of a law may not escape liability for violating that law merely because one was unaware of its content."

Justine Howell,Could it be on the books and just never enforced? That's true with a lot of these kinds of laws so that most of us deny such existence.
