More cars on the road?

Post  Ikon on Sun May 10, 2009 8:33 am

Since they upgrade the health warning to " orange " last week, my company started our split operations. I was station in Toa Payoh and on alternate days I drive to work. Mine is the OPC type which means I need to reach there before 7 am to save on the $20 coupon.

I estimate my travel time to be about 15 to 20 mins., I was wrong when I hit the highway at 6.45 am, I was surprise by the amount of traffic I encounter which lead me to being still on the road after 7 am. I reach my destination at 7.15 am and fortunately it was raining quite heavily and therefor I'm "safe".

The next time I was already on the road by 6.30 am, traffic still heavy but I manage to reach my destination before 7 am. My observation, I think if the situation for this maybe 4 or 5 years back, at that hour of time the traffic situation should be sparse. I guess many people are leaving home earlier to avoid the ERP gantries especially if they need to cross over 4 or 5 of them.

By your comments/observations i know it's been a while since you drove on a weekday morning. Welcome to morning mayhem..! The trouble is they keep pushing ERP earlier forcing people to leave even earlier to beat the ERP start up time. What do you expect? Then LTA say the ERP has succeeded in regulating traffic on peak period. All B-S if you ask me..

No doubt, I agree with you on that point, later the might just push to full day and night ERP.

Nah la, I rather take the bus to work la. It's just that I need to be home early that's why I drive. Normally I knock off at 6pm. Taking the bus I reach home around 8.45 pm if I leave on time. If I drive to work, I'll leave the office at 7 pm and still reach home around 7.30 pm.

Just wanna add on mayb off topic abit.. The problem is being added by stupid drivers who tailgate and end up kissing the car infront ass and COZ A MAJOR JAM in peak hours. Happen so many times on labour day eve.. Notice 4 accidents same scenario on that day, kissing the cars back.. Now so many wreckless driver driving those.. U noe I noe.. no need to say.. Im sure u notice it too! Its getting out of control.. More speeding vehicles.. weaving in and out.. challenging each other due to the other party not happy coz kena lane cut.. Damn! Singaporeans driver are now getting more selfish just because they can afford to own a car! I hate those wreckless driver.. I think it was in the newspaper very sad story evo driver beat a number of red light hits a cab and took the cabbie driver life who is trying to earn an honest living.. Young SELFISH driver!! Why this kind of problem arise? Izzit bcoz too many fast and furious movie? I myself dunnoe the answer but I just feel unsafe travelling on the road anymore.. What I understand is some driver will feel he is being challenged when a car cuts or overtake him.. Before we take any action on the road.. Just think.. someone is waiting for their loved one to reach home safely..

What I hate most in the morning if there is an accident on the expressway, almost everyone will take turn to look at it.. Looking for 4D number?? Very Happy Very Happy With the rise in numbers of cars in Spore, imagine each car takes about 3 secs to slow down and look at it.. How about 100 cars or more in front of us??
I personally encounter a taxi in front of me before, he practically came to a complete stop next to the accident scene to look for his number... and poor me have to keep horning at him.. haha .. Hats off man.. Very Happy

Sry, off track le...

Actually it is very stressful to be driving on crowded and jammed roads but there's nothing you can do if you're caught up in a congestion. Relax and enjoy your on-board music. As for the daredevil drivers either you join them (not advisable) or let them pass. Drive safely..
