Getting stuck in traffic jams can last for hours.
What can we do to improve the current transport system, or the attitude of road users?
Tell us what you think.
Let me tell you the real reason why Malaysia cannot have an efficient system as long as we have people who were bred and brought up the Mahathir Way of Generating Income.
Mahathir right from the beginning never like projects that does not generate much income and lasting. He likes grand projects that he can fiddle around with the cost and constant maintenance. In other word something that needs repair all the time. Like the SMART TUNNEL.
Still don't understand, never mind just continue reading. I know of a person who had sent in 118 proposal (all proven) or should I say solutions on how to improve the workings in Malaysia for the past 19 years to the Federal, Terengganu, Kelantan, Penang, Kedah, Malacca and Selangor State Government. As I write this now, the person is writing another proposal/solution (proven one) to solve the water issue in the country which will again be thrown aside.
From transport, telephone, affordable housing, recycle, water issue, overcome shortage of qualified teachers, education, markets, road side stalls, crime prevention, curing of AIDs, highway toll etc everything under the sun.
Do you know that Malaysia has the highest number of people with AIDs not Thailand?
Where is it proven that 118 proposal/solution works? Singapore, Indian, Africa, Korea, Japan, Norway, Canada, UK, USA, Denmark, Sweden, Australia and Thailand.
In all the 118 meetings the person had attended the Authorities acknowledged that it works but they do not want to implement it because THEY CANNOT GENERATE INCOME.'
Still don't understand.
All roads to avoid jam, lead to TOLL - income CRONIES
Stranded on the roads lead to burning of FUEL - income CRONIES
More potholes means CARS NEED REPAIR AND NEW TYRES - income CRONIES
Legal and illegal landfill and Incinerator - income CRONIES
Headless education system lead to private schools - income CRONIES
So do you now understand no matter how good or proven a system the AUTHORITIES WILL MAKE SURE IT DOES NOT WORK SO THAT THEY CAN SUCK UP MORE MONEY FOR THEMSELVES.
And this person still think and hope for a MIRACLE THAT SOMEONE UP THERE DECIDES TO DO SOMETHING FOR THE PEOPLE.
