ERP Gantries coming down, Big Brother coming up!

Post  Ikon on Thu Jul 01, 2010 11:36 pm

Heard over the radio this morning that LTA opening up tender for new road pricing system. Caught a few words about this new system and this two words is very prominent, 'satellite' and 'pay for usage'.

So I'm speculating since I have not since the actual tender document, if base on satellite technology, the proposal would be to track car usage using GPS Satellite. Every car will be installed with GPS transmitter, when you use your car they will be able to track the journey. The proposal is that you pay for the distance travel, the more your car spend on the road, the more you pay.

So anyone wants to speculate on the implication for car ownership in Singapore?

It ok for them to bring up these issue with LTA, ya in the pipeline if not mistaken the Govt already mentioned that Singapore will be have to pay for what they use. This will not differentiate what type of car you are using, it will be fairer.

If we look at it from the point of usage, say a saleman using a 800 cc car pay $XXX road tax, but spend 10 hours on the road contributing to the jam, but a CEO uses a Merc, spend 40 mins a day travelling from office to home and vice versa pays $XXXX road tax also not fair. His car maybe bigger but he spend less time on the road thus not contributing to the congestion. Just because he is a big earner and can afford a $200,000 car don't mean he must carry the burden of the normal guy that spend more time on the road.

This kind of complaint will prompt LTA to put forward their plan faster, advantageto the red plate, we get free conversion earlier!
