Time for Singaporeans to clean up their act

The filthy state of public toilets at East Coast Park, billed as a tourist attraction, is deplorable.

While rows of lamp posts at the park prominently hang "Your Singapore" banners shouting out loudly that "Singapore welcomes visitors during our Golden Jubilee", the filthy, messy toilets are a disgrace.

Singapore has progressed economically, but after 50 years, the behaviour of people has deteriorated.

Hawker centres are dirtier, there is more littering, and rude and reckless drivers are getting more common.

Singapore has often been labelled a "fine" city, with our fines for common offences. But more enforcement needs to be carried out to stem such bad behaviour.

It is also time to bring back the courtesy campaign on our roads.
