The writer describes the difficulties that he faced in importing an electric car into Singapore.
This is a reflection of the very depressing state of affairs in Singapore with the PAP government and its civil servants. The problems are:
a) Nobody wants to take the responsibility
b) They only know how to push the problem to another person, i.e. the EMA and VICOM
c) There is a total lack of common sense.
If LTA were properly run, the decision would be to register the car and see what happens. Does it break down? Does it cause any problem?
