A little icing and confetti

Below is an extract of a ST report that ERPs are well received and motorists are happy with their brightly coloured designs. I think they could make motorists happier by giving them a cup of free ice cream or coffee every time they pass through gantry. That will be great service! And the motorists will all be talking about how good the ice cream or coffee was, and how thoughtful. "MOTORISTS are giving the thumbs up to ERP charges - at least the way the amount payable is displayed on gantries. Snazzy colourful icons of vehicles and the amount motorists have to pay at various times are now revealed brightly in a panel at the top of the gantry. First unveiled on July 7 when five gantries downtown became operational, the new-style display has since been set up on 40 of 65 gantries in use. By Nov 3, the panels, each costing about $65,000, will be on 70 gantries. This is when five more gantries will come onstream in places like Commonwealth Avenue, Jalan Bukit Merah and Alexandra Road."

Adding insult to injury. Just like saying, hey, we are collecting more ERP charges from you so that we can pay for this expensive panel. If not enough, we will come after you for more. Silly you, you are paying for it!

Thumbs up? On the contrary, i think more and more motorists are cursing and swearing each time they pass through the gantries.

I would suggest setting up a stall near an ERP gantry selling rotten eggs, in case some motorist 'tak boleh tahan'
