Motorcyclists from all walks of life are weeping for joy and thanking the authorities.

This after news broke that more and more Housing Board (HDB) and Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) car parks will do away with 65-cent coupon parking and implement electronic parking systems instead.

Parking rates for motorcycles will become one cent per minute, instead of at a flat rate of 65 cents for every 12 hours.

National Development Minister Khaw Boon Wan said in parliament on Monday that such a move will be of “practical help to the lower income, particularly those who work hard to better their lives”.

One motorcyclist, Hua Moh Toh, said: “Thank you Singapore government for making me more of an honest person by installing electronic parking system.”

“I used to use one 65-cent coupon the whole day, now I pay more for every minute I enter and exit different car parks.”

“This also helps to make me a more hardworking person by forcing me pay more so I got to work more to earn enough.”
