Latest TODAY column: Journey of a car-crazed toddler
We are just lemmings. We know this happens every time. COE drops to some new low, and car-obsessed Singaporeans rush to the showroom to order their new cars (I am sure some even wrote their orders on little pieces of paper and threw them into the crowded showrooms at the salesmen). Then yes, the low COE becomes high again.
And yet, we rush to the showroom anyway. Thinking maybe, hey, the idea didn't occur to the other 2 million car-obsessed Singaporeans.
Will my son be like this too? I am seriously thinking of getting him interested in buses and trains. Then he will grow up thinking highly of public transport. Unless the new MRT station near his future housing estate gets Buangkok-ed.
