if you are on public property, yes you can
and i'm sure we've all seen posts in cs where photogs have been confronted to cease shooting.
i dont want to argue with you on legislations because i was only reading the board out of sheer boredom. not like i really care to go and read statues and laws online and be able to pull them out when people ask for legal help.

anyways, you don't ever need permission to shoot publicly. as long as you are on PUBLIC property. something like vince123123 says is just about right. when it goes into private property, other than OB areas like some mentioned already, there are situations where laws do not apply.
for example, technically, and legally it is perfectly alright to shoot in geylang. it is also perfectly alright to shoot in gang areas in more dangerous cities.
but good luck to you if you get spotted.
i saw a japanese film crew filming there before for hours and hours once - doing crazy things. and their assistants were constantly diverting human traffic thereby causing some kind of 'disturbance'.
and would you say a place like istana park is public property?

it must have come from "ob markers"
last time i shoot in Dempsey Road & the Gurkas passed me by in a Jeep, no issues le.
hmm...shooting a private property from a public road might get u into trouble.
e.g. i don't think photogs would be allowed to shoot freely along oxley road.
Some approached the photographer, i believe to ask him pack up and go. But after awhile, the photographer was still shooting, the authorities called for backup. I didn't hang around to watch, as the electronic shooting game was over and packing up.
