I'm small business owner. need vehicle to transport goods. but garment only support big businesses... which coincidentially they have large stakes in
Actually, all this time, we been paying 'erp' even we were walking. Cause of donation tin can asking u for it. Ha ha! On top of that, those $ go to whose pocket, we never know.
Only Sony device mostly, haha!
If you based on the dy/dx, or to be exact, dy/dt as it is time dependent, taken for the RECENT mths, you would've agree with me.
Layman word of all these for you is called" Trending" LOL
Bro octarian, mcycle coe was at 1710 last nov. Now it is 4289! In just 4mths!!!
Has yr 80 yrs of age obscured yr vision regarding this fact? LOL.
And i supposed the dy/dt every month is also increasing! Hence, my estimate based linear (meaning dy/dt is constant every mth) extrapolation is very conservative liao!
One year cost assuming driving everyday is $4780 a year. or $478000 for 10 years. Remember they save $20 for any days which they don't need to drive. Example, if they just drive 5 days a week including weekends (maybe they don't drive on tuesday and wednesday), their cost of ownership drops to $2700 a year or $27000 for 10 years which is a pretty good deal.
Or if they just drive during weekends, basically they pay $0....
Also if they use ERP roads, they pay $5/day.... which can be a great deal...
Also they don't have to pay for 10 years up front..... just $20/day as and when they need....
Also they have discount during the school holidays...
I have sent a email to LTA asking them why malaysian cars have a cost adv over singaporean cars 2 years ago.... they say they are in the process of reviewing the VEP.... that was 2 years ago...

No need to calculate details. COE is a cash cow. They will never kill it unless the price of keeping it alive is unbearable. e.g. losing at least 5 GRCs in a GE where the voters subsequently give feedback that it was because of the COE. If that event does not occur, COE will continue and keep increasing.
Thread title - what roof? Still a long way to go before it reaches $1 Million COE for small car.

the key thing is no need money upfront.
Singapore commuters have been driven into a corner.
uneconomical costs of private ownership plus unreliable, overcrowded and sometimes uncomfortable public transport... dammed if you do, dammed if you don't
Singaporeans drive their vehicles to Malaysia primarily for shopping like in JB. We are contributing to their local economy. While Malaysians drive their vehicles primarily to Singapore to work. It is more for convenient. Nonetheless, they are contributing to our economy too. Singapore needs a large foreign workforce especially from Malaysia. Do you know that Malaysia workers are treated differently compared to workers from South Asia, etc?
Also this does not affect Malaysians only. Basically any foreigner can drive a malaysian registered car at this rate. It is bad enough that singaporeans are subjected to this high COE and bad public transportation network and nothing is being done to curb foreign vehicle growth.
As usual, our garment thinks that foreigners are more impt than local SG
A friend of mine is already thinking of buying a MY car and hire a driver.to drive around. Even with a driver, its still alot cheaper than buying a stupid SG car
