Three letter words.

For your information, the population of Singapore is 5.18 million today, and very soon in the near future, it will reach the Govt planned figure of 6.5 million. I dread to think of what it will be like, imagine driving my taxi at a snail's pace in future, (no more speed limits). With increasing road congestions and traffic jams so common nowadays, on roads not having enough future space for further widenings, due to scarcity of land to accomodate the increasing volume of vehicles.
I think the Authorities will definitely approach its famous ways by firstly creating more new (3)-letter words to try to curb vehicle growth. "Walau, (BTH) 'buay tah han' liao!
Limit the release of Certificates of Entitlement (COE), increasing Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) rates, which is at present already too high, raise Road taxes and every other additionals involving motor vehicles. Maybe having two or even three 'tiered' highways and more tunnels are other possible alternatives don't you think? At least these suggestions may deter or prevent some of the imminent drastic changes foreseeable in the near future..
