Most people in Singapore would have looked forward to a restful sleep after a full day of visiting on the first day of the Lunar New Year (Jan. 22).

However, some Yishun residents were woken up by the sudden honking of a car.

Constant honking

According to Nathaniel, a Mothership reader who lives at 128 Yishun Street 11, it was around 2am on Jan. 23 when he heard the constant honking of a car.

Curious, he looked out of his living room window and realised that the noise was coming from a red car parked below.

He noticed that the noise stopped after a man popped his head out of the car, and then back in.

Nathaniel decided to go down and check on the man only to realise that the man was slumped in his car seat, with what looked like an empty bottle of liquor on the grass patch next to the car.

He presumed that the man was drunk.

He then called the police to assist the man.

According to Nathaniel, the police talked to the man for almost an hour. He also observed Land Transport Authority (LTA) officers arriving to assist.
