Singapore, the island state known for their draconian laws and punishment, has added another bizarre law to its books. The same country that prohibits chewing gum, spitting on the street, and mandates flushing of toilets in public restrooms, has now made it illegal to pick your nose in your car while driving.
Enforcement of the new law will be accomplished with the help of traffic cameras, police officers, and a hotline where witnesses can use their cellular phones to send pictures of offenders to police. In addition to a $1,000 fine, anyone convicted of picking their nose while driving will be required to pose with their finger up their nose and have the picture posted on a Web site of offenders. Public humiliation is considered an effective deterrent of crime in Singapore.
