solutions to ease traffic jam
Another letter in the media suggesting how to ease traffic jams without resorting to higher ERP charges. He suggested that a few lanes be reversed to allow traffic on the jammed side to drive through as done in Melbourne. Actually all these are temporary solutions. The best and most effective solution is for the population to hit 6.5 million. By then the moment you drive out fo the car park you will hit the jam. That will deter anyone from driving. Then the obvious solution is to raise the ERP charges to $10 per pass and there will be passes at every turn. A drive out of the car park to work or shopping will easily cost $100. Would there be any jams any more? And HDB car parking fees can be raised to $300 a month as the cars will be parked permanently in the car park. And car park owners can decorate their own carparks to their own fancy as many will spend a lot of time keeping their cars company in the car parks than be on the road.
