1/4 tank rule for Singapore cars

Malaysia is toying with the idea of reducing petrol subsidies for its citizens. Closely related to this issue is the hordes of Singaporeans pumping petrol in JB and enjoying the same subsidies. This is most inequitable to the Malaysians as the subsidies were meant to be for Malaysians only. What I think will be a simple rule to prevent Singaporean motorists taking advantage of the subsidies is to introduce a 1/4 tank rule. 1/4 should be enough for Singaporeans to drive back from the causeway after their shopping and feasting.

This should apply to their Malaysian cars coming into S'pore too. I am sick of hearing and reading about them getting involved in S'pore accidents without them having to compensate for losses caused by them.

Ah, more Bumi Bigotry. One price for the Bumis and one price to the suckers down Souh. The S'poreans pay more, whereby their taxes go to subsidise (by redistribution of wealth) Bum "lifestyles".

As I said before—any means to an end. That's the Bumi way!
