rude pedestrians, rude cyclists, rude motorists, rude policemen, rude people ... no wonder STOMP is doing so well ... huat ah!
Just from a practical view point, Singapore's landspace cannot sustain the "a car in every garage (or HDB Parking lot)" vision. Sad but true.
Like moths to a flame, the question is not "why should we get burnt?!?!", but that of are you financially strong (or knuckle-headed) enough to take the burn.
I'm still happy with public transport for now. But I will be joining the moth crowd when I have children. So hang tough in there, and just suck it up bros!
holy crap! this is ridiculous!
hopefully, the high charges won't divert traffic to other routes and it turn, cause another traffic issue there. and if there are traffic congestions, gantries will be put up, ERP kicks in and hopes to discourage motorists from using that road.
and what do you know, they go elsewhere and the whole cycle starts over. round and round we go and no solution is at hand. only someone's pocket is bulging with additional cash.
Erp doesnt seem to improve road conditions, they are just delaying the traffic to another time slot...same roads, same jam, different time.
Soon Singapore will be full of ERP gantry, when the gantries are gone, your vehicle will be GPS tracked!
Logging Off. "You have 2,631 messages stored, of a total 400 allowed." don't PM me.
that's why they still haven't figured out the problem yet
i think next step into or out of the house there will be erp too...since technically the home isnt completely yours, u owe here and there and havent fully paid up. By preventing late payment, they deduct straight away when you pass your own gate.
To get something from them can take eons, and reminder for them on your part.
To take something from you must be immediately, if not face lawyer letter, fines,
removal of priviledges, etc.
