But if they’re so good about following rules and regulations, why the need to deploy robots to catch people who aren’t following rules and regulations?
… or even have cops at all?
I wasn’t trying to suggest that the people I talked to were 100% of Singapore. Or that Singapore was a vast sea of obedient identical clones. Only that the ones I talked to showed surprisingly little chaffing. It was (and is) surprising and interesting to me.
As for why they’re deploying robots - I’m interested to know the cost / benefit the Sg police used. My guess is that this is like automation everywhere: a labour cost-cutting more, but I wonder what other benefits are in there.
Do you want Robocop?! BECAUSE THAT’S HOW YOU GET ROBOCOP!
Seriously, that movie was a cautionary tale!
