People cannot avoid to pee because it is a normal undertaking. Most of the time, boys pee wherever they want to. This is the reason why Singapore has come up with this law. Actually, there are public toilets in the country but it was abused by many people thus they have implemented a strict law on using the public toilets. Now, you can’t just pee anywhere you want to.
