Too many cars
There are too many cars parked on the roads in many private housing estates. The owners of each house have two or more cars. As the house usually accommodate only one car, the additional cars are parked on the road, causing congestion and difficult for other cars to drive through.
There are too many cars in Singapore. This is due to the inadequate service to link the private housing estates to the MRT station or bus interchange.
I hope that the local services can be improved. These local services will serve an area within the same town. The Land Transport Authority should encourage the small operators to provide a feeder bus service or a shared taxi service, for $1.50 per trip, to bring people within the same town.
This will encourage people to use the feeder services, instead of buying an additional car.
