It's the RFID nonsense that I quibble with. Why force Singaporeans to do this? If they're going to do it at all, make it simple - allow us to quickly and smoothly pick it up at customs and install it ourselves as we enter or exit. Rather than all this registration, appointment, going to a JPJ tented area nonsense. Why do they even need our damn particulars? 

 

Ostensibly, the VEP was to solve the problem of cars being smuggled into Msia and used on the roads illegally.

It's a real problem for them. Loss of govt revenue, unregistered & uninsured cars running around on the roads etc.

The implementation of VEP however, leaves much to be desired.

  1. I have registered VEP for my car, but did not go for the installation of RFID Tag. Can I go in Malaysia after 1 Oct?

Went in this afternoon to fix the VEP, only to be told system down and they cannot say when it would be restored. Was told all 4 locations were affected. What a wasted trip and not to mention the toll as my appointment was at the Lima Kedai toll. Going to and from JB incurred tolls.

There is a hard limit on the number of Singapore cars and bikes. Zero growth policy as it is called.

Singaporeans want to get a car, need to participate in the Battle Royale known as COE bidding.

Meanwhile, Malaysians just pay a flat fee per day to enter. Further more, first 10 days per year is free. So if a family or company in Malaysia has multiple cars (cars are cheap in Malaysia), they can basically fulfill all their travel needs in Singapore for free.

Anyone who drives regularly surely knows that Malaysian motorbikes outnumber local motorbikes.

These Malaysian motorbikes not just for commute. They use them to run errands and even brazenly do commercial delivery.

Soon Malaysian cars and lorry going to outnumber the locals also. Just you wait.

These Western educated government scholars are really living in their own bubble.

And the Singaporean sheep will knight for them all the same. Sad.

With regard to electronic top ups at rest stops - if anything, that strengthens my point about the convenience of TnG. 

I know that the initial implementation of VEP started with Jib. No issues with it. RM 20 is nothing and it's easy to keep the card topped up on exit so we have enough when coming back in for next trip. See, that's a sensible implementation. Just a gantry at customs. 

It's the RFID nonsense that I quibble with. Why force Singaporeans to do this?

Personally, I feel that the particulars are important, knowing how some of our locals drive like a mad man up north and beating the speed cams and denying the charges. With this system, you probably can't deny this, as the car is tagged to your name/passport. Those who buy used cars also have ease of mind, knowing that they won't need to pay for the previous owner's traffic fines

Speaking as one of the "madmen", this is exactly what I don't want. I'm being frank here, flame me all you like, but it's how most car enthusiasts feel when they go up north. Consequence free speeding, at most pay some kopi money. Just don't get into any tangles with other cars or the barriers. 

With regard to previous fines, it's a simple matter to check via the plate number. 

Anyway, even if they tag it to passport and what not, not many are gonna give a crap. If they send me a fine to my home address, very good, I'll pay it. I've been paying all my fines before, not like some jokers who chance it. More convenient if they notify me by mail rather than me having to check online. Fines are the price of speed. But if they start demanding I attend court for speeding, etc., the sh*t the sg gahmen pulls, well, that'll be the day I totally stop going there. There's no extradition or cooperation clause for this sort of minor thing, so no worries about consequences in sg.

Know the particulars of owner so what? Anyone can borrowed their friends or relatives car to drive up. Eventually it will all goes back to the VEP registered owner/driver. 

Unless they going to verify the driver's ID against the registered VEP record at point of entry and enforced only registered driver/owner pair must match to allow entry, the problem you mentioned is still the same.

To prove the offences was by previous owner can easily be done by showing the LTA owner transfer docu. If they accept, issue settle. If they don't accept, whether VEP or not, still LL.

The system is the same as traffic offences. The registered owner takes the hit unless he can prove he is not the one driving at the point of time.

if used properly, the VEP records can be used to prevent those cases where people swop licence plates. Similar as what our IU unit records can be used for
