400 S’poreans Fined For Flouting ‘Circuit Breaker’ Measures Make Us Wonder Why It’s Hard Following Rules

400 Singaporeans Fined For Breaching ‘Circuit Breaker’ Rules, Some Even Caused A Ruckus

With the introduction of new ‘Circuit Breaker’ rules almost daily, Singaporeans seem to be struggling to keep up.

Citizens are now restricted from visiting our friends and family from a different address, prohibited from eating out at kopitiams and required to wear a mask when they leave home.

400 Singaporeans were fined this week for flouting these rules, according to TODAY Online.

This leaves us wondering why Singaporeans cannot just be guai during these 30 days.

400 Singaporeans fined

Aound 3,000 enforcement officers are stationed in hotspots like markets and malls to ensure that Singaporeans are following the rules.

While the penalty is only $300 for first-time offenders, a second warning will land you a $1,000 fine. We’re pretty sure your Solidarity payout can’t cover this.

Just on Tuesday (14 Apr) and Wednesday (15 Apr) alone, 400 people had to face the penalty for breaching these laws, reported TODAY Online.

Some even made a scene

Even on social media, belligerent people were caught making a ruckus in public spaces, warranting the arrival of the police.

For example, one Singaporean woman refused to wear a mask in a wet market. A Facebook video of her went viral on Wednesday (15 Apr).

Another woman was apparently eating at Changi Airport food court on Monday (13 Apr). She quickly came under fire after failing to cooperate with authorities.

 

Minister Masagos Zulkifli also shared instances of an enforcement officer getting slapped, and a safe distancing ambassador punched when reminding a citizen to put a mask on.

These are not isolated incidents and it seems like many Singaporeans are still having a hard time adapting to life under the ‘Circuit Breaker’.

Important to follow ‘Circuit Breaker’ measures strictly

With more stringent control over how we get to live, it’s not surprising many Singaporeans are frustrated and anxious. Perhaps, this may be the reason behind their aggressive response.

Unable to keep up with the influx of new updates, one might still be unaware of existing guidelines put in place.

During this critical period, it is all the more important to properly educate and fellow Singaporeans so they can contribute to keeping society safe.

On our part, we need to strictly follow these measures in order for the ‘Circuit Breaker’ to work.

With more conscientious effort from everyone, we can definitely expect to see better progress in weeks to come.
