You can pick it, if you like to end up on Stomp :P

Outside of community gardens, the plucking of fruit from roadside trees without permission is an offence which carries a fine of up to $5,000.

There are some mango trees along Telok Kurau Rd, for the 2 years I stayed there you could actually find dozens of fruit just laying on the ground, people would just pick them up.
Quite tasty, though small.
