    The KPE is to ease jam, this will ease the CTE and PIE and ECP. Hence common sense is that the ERP should go down not UP....instead charge for everything.

    want to promote having dinner with family, and yet put ERP from city after working hours. We have to pay to go home as well. SG wants more children? Fat hope with all these rising cost...

    my question is " Is raising rates an effective solution to ease jams ? "



    could it be that our infrastructure needs capacity expansion ?

    As reports show, number of Singaporeans who are rich are rising so much so that news articles even talk about if the new rich are overdoing it. 500 over dollars risotto, gold leaf moon cakes, million dollar cars.... all being bought like there is no tomorrow. Property prices so hot that it is sizzling. It is no surprise that fares, Pub, erp charges are increasing.... after all Singaporeans can afford to pay. My thoughts are this is just the start.... in the next four years till elections.... more increases to be expected. Our pay increases? Well it all depends on what industry you are in.... if you are in banking and civil service then good for you. If not.... well... you may want to consider switching careers.
