Streetwalkers have proven themselves a nuisance to residents living in Jalan Suka, Geylang, leading to concerns that pimps and prostitutes operating in Singapore are becoming more aggressive in carrying out their trade.
According to a report in The New Paper, residents have complained about severe noise pollution night and day, large numbers of foreign workers as well as streetwalkers chatting loudly and turning on the music on their mobile phones.
A resident who recently wrote an open letter to the Prime Minister, Mr Adam Goi, says his girlfriend was intimidated by a pimp on July 8, as she was driving out of the lane. The pimp had apparently slammed his hands down on his girlfriend's car, giving her a shock.
Another homeowner says that Jalan Suka is lined with pimps and their girls from Vietnam and India, who sometimes quarrel amongst themselves.
Some of women are also very brazen, walking up to men and giving them a squeeze in their nether regions.
She also said that girls and their pimps do not appear afraid of the police anymore, as previously a passing petrol car would send them running. Now, the girls and their pimps just stay put.
