Toll Hikes

The Malaysian Minister of Works, Samy Vellu, has announced a New Year's gift - Toll Hikes.

Right now, I pay RM6.20 daily just to go to work and come back. That's going to increase to RM7.60 per day, that's more than RM200 per month if I calculate Saturdays just going into PJ.

Samy Vellu says, if you don't want to pay the toll hikes, take a hike and use the Federal Roads. Problem is, petrol prices had gone up this year too which makes every jam (which happens at every federal road) use up more petrol and hence, more cost to us drivers.

Either way, we lose.
