Singapore car population exploded in the last 10 years

singapore vehicle polpulation exploded in the last 10years

While everyone in Singapore has longed suspected that car population has exploded based on the bad experience of traffic jams, lack of car park spaces, escalating parking fees and lately the skyrocketing COEs, this is the first time we have hard evidence of the problem – with the caveat that the table is correct.

Looking at the table, not only the car population has increased by more than 50% over the last 10 years, the compounded rate of vehicle population growth is more than 3% as declared by LTA. Not only that the car popluation has exploded, the car size are getting bigger, faster and/or more luxurous. Gone were the days of small cars (less than 1000cc, the like of Suzuli Swift, Nissan March, Diahatsu Charade) plying the roads, and why many places such as Bukit Brown have to make ways for more roads and car park spaces!

My favourite quote today

"I am afraid the cruise ship is over capacity limit, and it used to be a luxury cruise ship. The designer’s claim that it is not sinkable, the name is Titanic. There are not enough life boats, no preparation or provision for failure. Thank you Mr Goh for reminding us." - Low Thia Khiang

"Till today, I am still puzzled by why the PAP cannot fight a fair election without gerrymandering, abusing the GRC system, basically, making sure they enter into a boxing ring with an opponent who is expected to fight them with hands tied behind the back. There is a reason why bullies are not popular in schools. Why not be the school prefect?" - Alvinology

"The question to ask is what lies at the root of the discontent or the disengagement between the G and the people. I am going to stick my neck out and say that it is ministerial salaries. I consider it the root of all evil. Serious. It reduces what should be a social compact into a business contract. " - Bertha Henson
