    logic is simple... revenue is increase... my guess is there'll be at least one more big price hike (like this one.. in term of percentage it's a killer) within these 5 years...

    Just look at all the ERP's. After setting them up, traffic jam still remain the same! What the hell is going on here? They're just sucking all our blood & hard earn money! And people driving slowly just to maybe get pass the higher rate charges through ERP's time, therefore causing traffic jam again. Ain't they making a fool out of us?

The other factor is of course going into the big men's pockets.

    Raising ERP charges will NOT ease the traffic jams.

    And why the hell they always like to prune trees during peak hours!?!!

    I honestly don't know what is wrong with you guys. Your loyalty to your country is so easily broken? A few cents rise in MRT fares and a dollar more of ERP and you go off crying? That's all being a Singaporean means to you, paying low bus fares? Have you all forgotten the agonisingly high COE prices we used to have? I still remember the $80K+ COEs of the early '90s. The LTA has already said, they will shift the burden from car ownership to car usage. All you guys now benefiting from record low COEs, what is a $50+ dollars a month for ERP? I bet you spend many times that on your petrol.

    If you think living in SG is expensive, please try some other western countries at similar levels of economic development, you will change your mind very quickly. Of the expariate colleagues I work and interact with, I have yet to meet one that says the cost of living here is higher than back in their home countries.

    National Day is coming up, we should be celebrating our remarkable tiny little island nation. Just look around the neighbourhood, how easy could it have been for us to become a failed or underdeveloped state? Another East Timor, Christmas Island, Maldives? Have any of our bigger neighbours done better than us?

    So much angst and anxiety over a <=$1 rise, what a bunch of whiners.
