BTW:

I read somewhere that it is limited to Little India and Geylang? Am I wrong?

Yes. Those two areas actually just have stricter rules and time periods. I thought the same thing too, as one of the newspaper articles were vague and only showed maps of those areas.

The cops will have a field day enforcing this on the Malacca Bridge by Clarke Quay!

LOL

There still doesn't seem to be any talk on crowd/traffic control on Sundays in Little India and Geylang, its choc a bloc full of pedestrian and vehicular traffic and its only a matter of time before someone gets mowed down.
But yes I see the priority is making the place alcohol free than congregation of tens of thousands of foreign workers in certain areas on a weekend.
To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late

I'm screwed...the last time I got pissed out drunk, I was going back with an NR6 bus from Purvis St area...I dozed off after some drunk texting, then the next thing I knew, I was sleeping beside a bus stop at Sengkang area, being woken up by a uni student...(4 am in the morning though)

Would I be charged if such a thing was seen by a cop?

Bah, I wouldn't be so concerned about it. In other countries, you can't even consume alcohol in public at any time of the day.

Be happy that we can still drink (expensive) alcohol the usual way (pubs, bars, private places).

What about places like the barbecue pits at East Coast Parkway? Do these rules apply there? Some ex-colleagues and myself like to rent one occasionally to have a few drinks and eat badly cooked prawns. That would be a real shame.

I would expect them to try to wake you up first and convince to disappear. Only if this not possible then take action. Nobody likes to drive with biohazard at the back seat and they probably have no special vehicle for this.

One time (London) I was travelling from Kensington, home to Aldgate after a night in the pub (3 miles? District Line on the tube). I fell asleep on the last train and woke up at the terminus at Upminster, maybe 25 miles outside of London with no trains back for 5 hours. Actually I did that a few times. One time I woke up and my shoelaces had been stolen and a love-heart drawn in lipstick on the crutch of my jeans. Mmm klassy :shock: :lol:

This is a much better article I found someone post on Facebook. Just ignore the authors obvious bias and agenda.
