    Thumbs down ERP satellite tracking is an invasion of privacy.

    LTA is requesting for proposal for satellite tracking for erp in two years time. I think such technology is creepy.

    I am rather amused by how the gov can always leverage on technology to get money from us

    Too shallow? explain what do u mean?

    I learned a long time ago, i don't need my voice to be heard in terms of gov't issues.

    Plus, to install or not should be my choice, afterall they can force all Malaysian vehicle to install that right?

    If it is other countries like US or Hong Kong, we will see demostrations on the street already.

    Just like how Hong Kong Govt dropped the idea to implement GST

    http://www.tax-news.com/asp/story/st...toryname=25671

    In a surprising about turn, the Hong Kong government said yesterday that it will abandon plans for a goods and services tax in the face of widespread public hostility to the idea.
    ...
    In August, thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of Hong Kong to protest against the planned tax. The pro-business Liberal Party, which organised the march, claimed that as many as 10,000 people, including local businesses operators, traders and retailers took part, although a spokesperson from the police department stated that the number was closer to 3,000.

    Miriam Lau, deputy chairwoman of the Liberal Party argued at the time that: "This march indicates that a GST would seriously impact trades and businesses and they are very anxious to tell the government that they do not wish it to implement it."
