ERP..one of the causes for accident

There is an ERP gantry near my place. A 400m from where I started. It doesn’t make sense to me to pay $2 for the use of such a distance and so, I have to leave home slightly earlier so that I could go through the gantry before 7am.

Of course, I am not the only soul who thought about such a plan. Hundreds or perhaps thousands had the same thought.

Two days ago, I set off 7 minutes earlier and found to my horror, it was jammed! Tha 400m! Why? There were road accidents. Two, to be precise. One involving 2 cars and the other involved 4 cars. I was fortunate to pass by the gantry just 1 min before 7am. Sweat!

Yesterday, I was 4 minutes late but to my pleasant surprise, the highway was clear, at least for that stretch. Then it was jammed again from Eunos onwards.

Today, I was more disciplined and got out 10 minutes earlier. Again, there was accident before the gantry.

I know many would say why we drivers would save on a few dollars when we have to pay hundreds or thousands each month. Precisely! We spend so much each month and why should we fork out more again?

Potential car-buyers, please think twice before the purchase.
