LTA is requesting for proposal for satellite tracking for erp in two years time. I think such technology is creepy.
they can already triangulate your location via your mobile if they want to.
so now .. if you need to go some place - you know where - and dont want to have record that you go there - you know where - then take taxi la, or bus even better. hahaha :P
I am rather amused by how the gov can always leverage on technology to get money from us
RGB Metering & Focusing.
they will prob look into dist based erp too like our current public tpt. once u out from ur carpark lot, ding ding ding ding ding till you park your car! sigh.. wonders of technology
Every technology is not fool proof as a matter of fact is based on software, like the Iphone people able to break the code in no time...LOL
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
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."
After the gps tracking erp thing, next in line is calculating speed of moving vehicles and parking la. No need speed traps. Do we have to pay for a whole new transciever of sorts ?
i quote you Leonidas (but in Singapore context)... "THIS IS... SINGAPORE!!!"
