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 .

The chewing gum sales ban in Singapore has been in force since 1992. Since 2004, an exception has existed for therapeutic, dental, and nicotine chewing gum, which can be bought from a doctor or registered pharmacist.

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.
