Sian 1/2...

Traffic in the CBD is slowing down, said the Land Transport Authority (LTA). So in January, as part of its Master Plan, the LTA came up with a new way to measure speed.

It is called the 85th percentile method - this is when motorists experience smooth traffic at least 85 percent of the time on roads that have ERP gantries.

So, new methods to find an excuse to raise ERP charges and to install more gantries? So, when it's more smooth, what new formula will LTA devise to find more excuse to raise the charges and to build more ERP?

ERPs are just like crude oil... It only keeps getting up...
