I was reading the forums when this article from India caught my attention.
Lee Kuan Yew told the minister that the land acquisition procedure for any developmental project is completed within two months and claims are taken in subsequent phases. “Congestion taxes on vehicles plying on busy roads are a routine course of action in Singapore. The maximum time to reach any corner of Singapore is 20 minutes as traffic is not allowed to flood the roads,” he added.
Well, if you hear it from MM Lee, it got to be true. Why not? With Traffic Police escorting your car, everyone can reach any corner of Singapore within 20 minutes. What? You mean you don’t have your personal Traffic Police to escort you to office everyday? Well, then it’s about time you find a job that give you such benefits. Don’t blame anyone if you take more than 20 minutes to travel.
And the traffic is never allowed to flood the road. The jam that you are causing every day is illegal. You are not allowed to flood the roads. So give way to the Traffic Police escort.
Come to think of it, have he ever tried traveling from Tuas to Changi?
Or from City to Yishun via CTE during peak hour?
