the small business opposite will suffer because of this. only if the people who implemented that thought of those poor small business folks.

If I'm not wrong, SG has already imposed charges to M'sia cars to enter SG. Part of the reason is to deter S'poreans from buying M'sia cars to use in SG at a lower cost.

Actually not good idea, it will only create cost increase to our vegies and products we import from MY. But if levy on private vehicle only guess that don't hurt us much.

you should realise that Singapore IS already charging Malaysian cars SGD20 for each working day in Singapore, besides the toll cost...

Not this.. already by law any singaporean is not allow to drive any foreign registered vehicle, the penalty is quite harsh i think...

hehehe ... I dunno about this ... not affected very much as I seldom go JB ... Guess that for regular trippers, it would be a disincentive for them to go in unless they have lots and lots things to buy so as to offset the RM$20 levy ...

According to the link given by huggable, not only vehicles from Singpapore are imposed on the RM20 levy. Vehicles from Thailand are affected by this rule too. (from May '06 onwards)

If they want to impose a RM20 levy on Sg cars, good luck to them. Imagine the number of Sg going to Johor will drop drastically and their economy will be badly affected. What Johor is today is a result of Singaporean pumping millions into their economy daily thru our spending there. Actually, we are in a no-win situation. If their roads get chocked with traffic, they blame it on us. If the price of things there go up, the ppl there blame it on us pushing it up too. If the business there get worse, they blame it on Singaporeans not patronising them which they attributed to the negative image protrayed by our local press especially those robberies involving Singaporeans. Damn, if we do. Damn, if we don't do.

According to the article, SG cars will have to pay S$20, motorbikes S$4 to enter M'sia starting 1 May. Any Malay bros can verify?

http://www.bharian.com.my/m/BHarian/Sunday/Mukadepan/20060401235625/Article/

After reading the article...Begining the 1st of May. all Singapore cars entering Malaysia will be charge $20ringgit per entry
Well Singapore have made Malaysian cars paid $20SGD($45ringgit)per entry long time ago...i think its cheaper for weekends.
So dnt blame them for imposing $20ringgit charge for entering thier land..
$20ringgit is like $8SGD.. whats the big deal. the malaysian been paying more then US.:cool:
