    Just goes to show that the government is being careful and is trying to avoid being accused anti-poor rather than coming up with actual solutions

    ^I honestly agree with you... BUT that is from the view point of someone who will just save a little bit more to purchase a car...

    Sadly, in PHL setting... There are a lot of people directly and indirectly earning from cars and traffic.

    I would have preferred a toll fee in C5 and EDSA (similar to Singapore's ERP) and additional taxes on parking... Taxes on car sales/sugar/fuel will result to inflation.

    I would rather prefer your Singaporean way :

    Singapore: no more cars allowed on the road, government says
    The number of buses and goods vehicles will be allowed to continue growing but the growth cap for private cars will be cut to zero in 2018

    Singapore, one of the most expensive places in the world to buy a vehicle, has announced it will freeze the number of private cars on its roads from next year but vowed to expand public transport.


    The growth cap for all passenger cars and motorcycles will be cut from 0.25% a year to zero with effect from February, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said.


    The affluent city-state of 5.6 million people already imposes a quota on the number of vehicles sold and the number on its roads, and has avoided the massive traffic jams that choke other Asian cities.


    Singapore makes it costly for those wanting to buy a vehicle, who must first get a “certificate of entitlement”, valid for 10 years – the average cost of a certificate is currently around Sg$50,000 (US$37,000).


    A Toyota Corolla Altis, a five-door sedan, can cost up to around Sg$111,000 in Singapore, including the price of the certificate, or about four times what it costs in the US.

    ^as I said... we're looking from the car owner's point of view

    Singaporeans don't need traffic... none of their citizens sell peanuts/newspapers when the traffic light turns red.
    No one does a DIY oil change (or look for a cheap mechanic in Carousel/Gumtree)

    Even if they stop adding cars next year, a number of cars will reach 10 years and will be off the road (scrapped).

    I've never heard of a time when they ran out of COE for new cars... There's always COE available... It's just a matter of how much are you willing to pay for it (I believe is around S$42k today for small cars)

    There are more than 500k cars in Singapore roads right now... If they maintain the same number for 10 years + the fact that they banned cheap cars in the market (new cars are required to meet Euro-6) I don't think they will ever run out of COEs

    Ideally revenue from excise tax on vehicles, increase tax on fuels & possible congestion charging would be solely used to fund a Tokyo-quality rail transport system within a radius of 50km from Rizal Park in Manila City.

    Cities it would reach are the following.

    I want it to absorb more than 80% of people traveling.

    Only the Japanese can provide a Tokyo-Quality rail system... They have the discipline and dedication... Even Singapore's train system can't compare with Japan.

    If our government wants to have a Tokyo-Quality rail system, then they must hire Japanese people to run it and only Japanese passengers must be allowed to use it :)

    Manila International Auto Show will start tomorrow til Sunday.

    Ford will launch the 2018 Expedition, now back in 4x2 and 4x4 variants. Will verify if they will sell both standard and extended lengths.

    And the 2018 Mustang will have a convertible, in 6MT and 10AT.

    There’s already an all new vios launched (forgot which country) late last year so I’m guessing we’ll get that sometime this year. For the City I doubt we’ll see a new model this year.
