Real Actions Taken Only After Tragedy Happened

It is very common to see provision shop owners displaying their goods outside their shops. If you go to places like Toa Payoh for example, you would see lots of goods along the corridors such that any passer-by would find it difficult to move to the other side of the row of shophouse. Isn't this a potential fire hazard as well? If a fire were to break out during a busy Sunday, a chaotic situation might happen when the passers-by along the corridor try to run for their lives. Someone might seriously get hurt or even get killed in a stampede or by the falling goods. Maybe I'm just being too imaginative.
