JOHOR BARU: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has announced that the Government has decided to implement the Vehicle Entry Permit fee for all foreign vehicles entering Johor.

Najib said that the decision was made following a request made by the state.

"I have discussed the matter with Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and have also informed Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Wahid Omar of our decision.

"I have instructed him to inform the Road Transport Department (JPJ) so they can work out the details before the VEP is implemented," he said during a buka puasa event organised by the state Wednesday.

 

"We will make an announcement later on the date of implementation and the rates for the VEP," he said.

Najib also assured that a portion of the collection would be channelled to the state Government.

Does that mean a third booth that we need to stop at, at the checkpoints after the kastams then the toll plaza? 

 

Hopefully they can make it more efficient by letting us pay the VEP at the toll plaza as well.

When they start collecting VEP, the inevitable will happen.

JB business will complain or shut down.

It will hurt them more than it hurts us.

RM20 ... zero impact ... may be less than 5% drop in business

 

RM50 ... some impact ... business drop how many %? no sure ... knee jerk reaction may be ... eventually ... RM50 also numb and everyone still drive to JB

 

RM100 = suicidal ... too hard to swallow

It should be at the custom, currently we are paying very small amount at causeway (RM2.90?) and 2nd link, if this implemented, just increase the charges.

I travel to work weekly to check on my sister co in Johor via second link. Everyday Spore registered car coming in from JB jam till almost half of 2nd link. Think those PR whom work in spore and stay in JB will suffer most. Eventually they may switch to stay in spore.

E.g Rm20 per entry so per month is 20 X 5 X 4 = Rm 400 per month

If Rm50 per entry so per month is 50 X 5 X 4 = Rm1000 per month.

What do SG gain by increasing the toll charge per day? To earn revenue from there? Well.. maybe..

The main thing is maybe to trigger a reaction from the other side, which they think should trigger the desired reaction, which is also to increase back. the ego guy across does the same.. it's call face off earn some face..

More Singaporean detered from driving in hence lesser spending in JB... Hence mote spending in Singapore.. More local business, + more GST earned! Smart move, very smart.

Then built the high speed train, revenues shared between 2 government, increase bus services etc..

First hit will be those go in every few days for petrol, then the weekly grocery shopper.

But it will not deter those weekly golfers or those driving in to other states for holiday :D

Huat ah!

 

Will we see more cars get scrapped? Particularly those marginal owners that need to visit JB for petrol?

 

Imagine the increase if substantially enough will offset whatever savings they get from grocery shopping and cheaper petrol, then when spending is re-directed in Singapore, it's going to hurt the pocket of this group.
