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.

Whatever solutions we can think of, the moment it gets effective, the gahmen will divert to another "problem" area and up the cost$/ price$ to solve that "prob". Shucks!!

Precisely, pay serveral millions annually to expect high quality of performance but we got worst than monkey, the group of greed gorillas, in return demand this & that from us. It ready make me feel like blow off their nest. Look at their link investment Bank (DBS, POSBANK, OCBC) & other huge profitable link companys are making tonnes of money.
Yet the banks & CPF interest rate still so low especially Bank. The people are expected to be their slaves till dead, forget about the fxxk CPF money, citizenships so long this pool capitalism heartless idiots still exist.
