76% of drivers who do not pay ERP daily benefit from 15% road tax cut

http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stori...361795/1/.html





SINGAPORE: Only a quarter or 24 per cent of all drivers in Singapore incur daily Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) charges.

Speaking in Parliament on Monday, Transport Minister Raymond Lim said this means the majority, who are not affected, are actually better off with the 15 per cent cut in road tax implemented in conjunction with the ERP changes.

Pointing out that the increase in ERP revenue is estimated at S$70 million against S$110 million from the road tax reduction, Mr Lim said this means a net revenue shortfall of S$40 million for the government.

Mr Lim was responding to questions brought up by Marine Parade GRC MP Lim Biow Chuan and Ang Mo Kio GRC MP Dr Lam Pin Min on the recent ERP hikes, coming at a time of rising living and fuel costs.

They had also asked whether the government would put a freeze on further increases in ERP charges.

The Land Transport Authority will continue to monitor the road traffic conditions closely. - CNA/vm

But most pple will have to pay ERP at one time or another....

Very soon, there will be more ERP gantries, will they then stop collecting from COE or road tax?

Re: 76% of drivers who do not pay ERP daily benefit from 15% road tax cut

frm wat i see they r putting ERP at every single pt tat reach to expressway anyway in GPS maps expressway r considered as toll roads.... so i guess eventually sg will have ERP tat cost 10 bucks to enter expressway..... and few gatery along the expressway so 1 trip maybe 30 bucks

being a toll roads means paid road u choose to use to pay.... bt all the small roads will get jam... n to mi i find it slow moving traffic at small road is fine wat... its not as if it will stop there dont move... bt ppl who drive merz bmw... wan express den pay lohz...

Re: 76% of drivers who do not pay ERP daily benefit from 15% road tax cut

Benefit from 15% rd tax cut? hahaha... 15% of road tax is just $100+ a year for the average car.
$100 can do what these days? pump 1 tank of petrol and eat 2 meals?

This article makes those who get the 15% off sound like winners. gimmie a break.
