ERP rates will have more rationale.

After it was announced that at least four gantries will have their ERP raised to an arbitrary $6 mark, Singaporean drivers are complaining that there is no rationale why should congestion tax be this price.

To combat this perception, the transport authorities have decided to lend credence to the benchmark by making ERP rates $48 by the end of the year.

The $48 level is to go hand-in-hand with Singapore’s 48th anniversary this year.

Singaporeans interviewed said they are grateful for this explanation to dispel notions of arbitrariness.

One local, Boh Hua Qia, said: “Thank goodness the authorities didn’t raise it to $90.”

Singaporeans from all walks of life who cannot afford to own a car are thanking the Singapore government profusely.

This after they heard that ERP in the mornings will cost $6 at four expressway gantries from Nov. 4, 2013 as the authorities have reviewed the traffic and found that they can rake in more money by upping congestion taxes.

One Singaporean, Boh Lui Lang, said: “If not for the government’s sound policies and making car loans so hard to get, imagine what would happen if I can afford to own a car in Singapore? I have to pay $6 ERP in the morning.”

This outpouring of gratitude was so widespread among the public transport-taking population that they are willing to overlook MRT train faults and delays.

Tah Di Tieh, a local, said: “I want to thank the government for making the COE price so high until I can only take bus and MRT. Even when MRT break down these days, I won’t be angry but grateful instead, because I don’t have to pay the $6 ERP.”

“Because all the cars travel expressway will pay $6, and pay already, still got traffic jam.”
