    Heres from a secondary school kid's point of view...

    i think that COE should be remodeled such that the first car of a person (if unmarried) or of a couple should be relatively low so that every singapore family can have a chance at owning a motor vehicle, should they want to own a second car, they should have to pay premiums of sky rocket amount because that would be a luxury more than a need already

    then that should be covered in the policy too such that when you turnoever the person too is bound to these laws and that COE when transfered is void if thats how it works idk haha... and the new owner if already has an existing car would too have to pay premiums in increments to the amount of cars he has owned and the period that he had owned them... something like means testing

    ERP gantry will be history soon once they
    Implement "invisible" gantry, effectively convert all roads into a big car park. U are charge for the time you spend within an area. Different area with different rate.
    So, we all become taxi driver in a way, except we drive the car ourselves.

    Sound scary ? It is coming soon...

    So if unmarried better buy car first, can enjoy owning two cars without the penalty

    Its a big balance between Wants & Needs... alot of us 'wants' a car... but we don't really 'need' one. Much like I want a EOS 1Dx.... but I don't need one.

    We are a very small nation... smaller than most cities around the world. There is no way we could keep making roads and adding cars into the system. Yes... the MRT is aging and failing... the Buses are packed. But if you could survive for so many years in your teenage till working adult life... you could survive some more.

    Buy a Car or Bike if you want too... but don't go and Complain about COE, ERP, Road Tax, Limited Parking Space and Jams, when you very well should have known, how $$$$ it is to own a Car in S'pore. The 'near' $100K COE could have been used for down payment of a HDB unit... If you already have a House.... then think of the money you could have put aside for yourself or your children.

    But if you STILL want a Car... then Buy one and don't complain...

    Yes.... and when you want to get married... go complaint to your MP because you can't afford any HDB unit....

    Yes... much like Greek government right... give and give until bankruptcy. Then people Vote in a new government, thinking that they no longer have to service their debt. If Democracy meant taking as much as we want without a care... S'porean really deserved to live in the state we are in...
