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.
    Are you sure is just S$50+ a mth if you travel to work 5 days a week during peak hr? Please do some math as not all people will pass through only just 1 gantry on the road during peak hr you know?

    That's the reason why most of them cook/repair household thing themselves. Although the cost of living back in their home is high, but can you imagine how much higher they are paid here compare to us? If not, why they come over here to work?

    Why don't you tell those high up there to rule this places which you've mentioned here & see what they'll tell you in return?

    Lastly, if you are earning more than S$5,000 a mth now, of course you don't feel that pinch at all man! No offence dude.

    Final say, in the near future.... Here is a place for the rich & very rich only. If you are not one of them, you better go somewhere else or just take a hike.

    PS: I wish many many peaceful years ahead for this country & for the rich & very rich.
