Maybe one or our Singaporean members could chime in if I am correct.

HELLO! This was purposed some time ago here in the U S .

Nothing new. Along with taxing per mile driven. Easy to do with the computer already in the newer cars.

Look to see in the near future the cost to register your car, if older , to cost a huge cost. Left hand shove to make us buy new cars. This is arround the corner....
