    And also to reduce the car growth in Singapore further... This was reduced from 3% previously to the current 1.5%... And the next review is in 2012... which i think they will further reduce...

    Reduce car growth = increase COE...

    Not true. ERP increases affect everyone as the transportation of goods, food and people all need to pass thru ERP gantries

    The current ERP rate is simply too low, and is not enough of a deterrent. Increase it to $20 and you will soon see no cars on the road!

    nope....he is referring to the possible consequence of increase in prices of goods/services, food and even possibly public transport (except mrt/nel/circle line/downtown) because these companies have to factor in the increase in ERP when their raw materials/finished goods passes through the ERP-ed roads or to factor in additional fuel and time due to detours around the ERP-ed roads.

    so, the ERP indirectly affects us...
