Singapore to stop adding cars to roads in February 2018.

Everywhere in the world, countries are struggling with fewer land areas than required for a healthy living. While every other country is still on discussing terms how-to control the deteriorating state, the city-state of Singapore just announced a plan in wake of increasing vehicles. The plan is to reduce the growth rate of vehicles from 0.25% per annum to 0% from 2018 for both, cars and motorcycles. Suffering from a very limited space, Singapore is obliged to take these measures which are by far an appreciable initiative towards a greater good.

One of the world’s leading technology hub and expensive place to own a car at, it is a great step altogether. Of course, it was one of the best feelings in the world to drive around Singapore in an open top mechanical Targa roof and the breeze touching your face. But this breeze and the air will soon vanish away if there is no space left for it. Skyscraper buildings covering the lengths of skies, and now the cars taking over the only land available is a big problem to deal with now or never.

In wake of this ghastly situation, The Land Transportation Authority (LTA) of Singapore recently released a plan to deal with the curb of vehicle growth rate down to nil which will be starting onwards February 2018. As mentioned above, this will only include cars and motorcycles, however, busses vans and Lorries are currently exempted from this plan. LTA also mentioned that it will be continuously reviewing vehicle growth rate until 2020 and change the course of its plans if the growth is under control.

Unlike before where buyers used to get permits known as Certificates of Entitlement, which allows the owner a right to own the vehicle for at least 10 years; these permits are auctioned off and no longer available, whatsoever.

The government is concerned about the limited land available which is consistently decreasing due to more and more cars causing traffic, as well as climate change. Climate change is the second most important aspect behind this ban. The LTA also mentioned, ‘Viewing the current state of land constraint conditions and the need to expand housing area it is impossible to expand road networks if vehicles will grow at an enormous rate.’ According to resources, roads wind up as much as 12% of total land area available in Singapore.
