Finally! LTA announces a date for the new OPC scheme!

I don't mean to sound pompous but perhaps someone at LTA actually read my entry 3 weeks ago and decided to get their act together. They've finally announced a date for when the new OPC scheme will be implemented.

From 25th January 2010 onwards, OPC car owners will be able to fully utilise their cars on Saturdays. Which pretty much means your car is now available the entire weekend without having to wait till after 3pm on Saturdays before it moves. It's seriously great news considering the amount of appointments I've had to miss cause of the restricted hours.

Of course being under the new scheme comes at a price but I still think it's worth it. Personally my road tax will increase from $50/yr to $70/year. Considering all the Saturdays and eves of public holidays I'll be able to use the car, the cost will be minuscule. I just don't agree with the admin charge necessary to be converted to the new scheme though. What kinda admin charge do you need to put my car under the new scheme? It's just another lame attempt from LTA to suck money out of everyone's pockets. Dammit!

Besides that, I guess for once the LTA actually heeded the requests from the public and did something right. We should all be so thankful...

A big fan of Porsche’s 911 series, he believes that there's no purer power than the 3.6-litre twin charged flat six found in a 997 Turbo.
