zeenie For a moment there, i had thought that my haze-affected eyes had read wrongly that all ERP rates will go up a dollar. So what's the rationale behind this increase?
26 Oct 2010
JoeYadao Hi Zeenie, it's probably the usual. "Too many cars at this hour, so we'll raise it by a dollar, see if that stops them from jamming up the roads."

..do you overtake a car which is making a reverse parking infront of you? or do you wait for it to be fully reversed into the parking lot so u can drive pass thru ?

20 Oct 2010
JoeYadao Personally, I'd wait. But that's because some drivers don't have a habit of checking traffic before they pull out of the lot to adjust their car.
