Fuel restriction won’t turn off Singaporeans

SINGAPOREANS drive across to Malaysia, particularly Johor Baru (JB), because of cheaper goods and services, including fuel.

Johor is now restricting Singapore motorists to only 20 litres of petrol. This can be an inconvenience to those who wish to drive non-stop to Kuala Lumpur.

Unlike some people, Singaporeans do not smuggle petrol. Besides, by law they have to have at least a three-quarter tank of petrol on leaving Singapore.

As long as it is still worthwhile to drive to Malaysia, Singaporeans will continue to do so in spite of the perennial traffic congestion at the checkpoints. The day when it is no longer worthwhile is the day when the number of Singaporeans going to JB dries up.

No one disputes Malaysia’s right to impose such a restriction, but be mindful of the fact that Singaporeans form your biggest tourist arrivals.

ROGER POH,
