    Default Quota for COE increase for 4 wheels. but motorcycle Quota drop



    The monthly quota of COEs for May to July has been released by LTA; compared to the February to April bidding exercises, there will be a 41% rise in available COEs for Cat A (cars up to 1,600cc/97kW), 37.8% for Cat B (cars above to 1,600cc/97kW), 46.9% for Cat C (goods vehicles and buses), 53% for Cat E (open). Slight dip of 4.6% in available COEs for Cat D (motorcycles). Story to come.

    Source: channelnewsasia facebook.

    looks like they want to further increase motorcycle coe. all cat increase quota except motorcycle.

    Actually, it is not such a bad thing, if you look at the bigger picture. And the bigger picture is, given a fixed growth rate, larger quota means higher amount of de-registrations. And the more de-registrations, the faster the total bike population decreases.

    As I was saying all along: guys, please buy used bikes, it would serve two purposes. First, it is the demand for new bikes that drives COE prices up. And second, if people are able to sell second-hand bikes, they would not be tempted to de-register them and thus give away part of COE quota to cars. And if you really want to buy a new bike, buy one which would last long, not some cheap crappy bike which will have to be scrapped after 3 years.

    blackmamba : i try not to be political but Opposition have never promise abolition of coe because they know that COE bring money , so i doubt if pap loses, coe still stay or at least tweak abit but later on in future it will swing back into action. i have no solution but 1 : no more motor vehicle but then somebody will surely think u walk u pay. just like that singtel lady think use watsap pay

    Even cheap crappy bikes gets sold and resold, the only time anyone scraps a bike is when its beyond repair, sometimes because of drivers. The older the bike is, the more maintenance you have to do.

    The issue still remains, why increase the number of jam causing vehicles driven by people who mostly drive alone but decrease the number of vehicles that contributes next to nothing in congestion.

    Only one explanation, the policymaker is probably a driver but definately a moron, then again PAP is full of them.

    Probably not moron, but more not willing to take responsibility. Original system, with 3% growth, additional category E and one forth of de-registration going to this category was very balanced. Not because the algorithm was good, but because it had a good match to numbers. Now, after they started changing the numbers, they should have changed the algorithm for allocation of different categories as well, but apparently nobody is willing to accept such a responsibility.

    If I have to take loan for a bike, might as well make it a class 2 bike.

    just saw report of SG's top selling cars, generally only the well off can afford cars nowadays, and all the rest who don't have the "resources" and poor sods have to use public transport or two wheelers. See what other pre-election "pacifiers" and "goodies" are lined up for the general chap on the street to sweeten the resolve that we currently have the "best" democratic third to first world zeng hu. yes we should thank the PG also that we don't have our own "PG" to save us from ourselves and our machines from an accessible track, agree? wonder if there are any other PG packages in store???

    well, soon bikes will be like that - only those richer ones won't feel wth pinch of the COE...

    This is really a degradation of society where the rich gets richer and the poor gets poorer.

    Imagine a new 200cc bike will cost at least 15k in a year time? N sellers of 2nd hand bikes will sell their bike super high.

    There's a reason why they have a quote, "Uniquely Singapore"

    I dont think we are mainly anti pap. but getting frustrated with alot of changes and everything seems on the increase but our salaries not increasing accordingly to the increase in other factors. eg: our salary increase say $50 a year. but look coe in february suddenly jump so much in march onwards. another look: cars from malaysia coming to here VEP suddenly jump from 20 to 35. people may say. good so less malaysian car into our roads, but the effect snowball .
    i really wonder how many citizens are really very worried about their ricebowl daily. i am sure the out of the 60%, many of them still worry.

    well said,
    looking at the ways things are going looks more like we are a "business" to them.
    Not Anti-PAP,go work ERP come home ERP,go out also have ERP,But still bottle neck at gantry area,still have cisco to monitor.
    But guess slowly everyone will be fustrated at the way the cost of living is increasing rapidly,esp things which the govt has control of and making business out of it rather than a solution.

    ERP is no longer a measure to control traffic flow (or rather, maybe 30% of it is true). This saying was a thing of the past, we have to get past that else we're just sticking in the mud.

    ERP is now a mainly a means of revenue, everyone knows that. Revenue for what? Nobody knows. Maybe to invent the GPS ERP system, plant more trees on the road, or repair the traffic light that some gudo knock down... everything cost money in our country.

    After charging $4800 per COE, now there are just 3 more COE's monthly for the next 3 months, a laughable effort.Look at the stats on the number or COE'S Allocated to Open Cat and Big Cars combined... greed is good . So now 10% instead of 15% of Quota returned to Open Cat, they're still sucking us bikers dry. I don't see why bike COE's should be given to Open Cat!Do LTA have any stats on how many bikes are registered with OPEN CAT COE's?
    Life's just not fair and that's a FACT!

    This also explains just how much the leaders are slapping themselves across their faces, they keep saying there is a need to solve congestion by limiting amount of vehicles and yet the COE quota shows the introduction of more congestion causing vehicles. I am beginning to wonder are the leaders tripping or are we just being treated like idiots who does not understand simple mathematical calculations?

    btw why didnt the VEP for Malaysian bikes raised since the COEs for bikes now so expensive?
    If i remember the last time LTA raised VEP for Malaysian bikes was in Sept 2003.

    Interesting that 49 of the 367 COEs in the 2nd exercise were not allocated; that means that the top 50+ unsuccessful bids were for the exact same amount, correct?

    With an additional 49 COEs flowing into the 1st exercise in January 2015, perhaps we will see a drop in the Cat D COE price to start the new year?

    Vote for PAP so that we can

    1. have less motorcycles on the road, cos the road conditions nowadays are too dangerous for motorcycles, i.e. pot holes, patches which resembles humps running parallel with roads.
    2. have high class shoe box apartments which we call HDB flats (sometimes even premium). These flats are small in sizes so as to enable the owner to spend less effort in cleaning and also save the owner money since he can't buy too much furniture.
    3. have less beds in hospitals, so that we should keep ourselves healthy or choose the Advance Medical Directive to die quickly to prevent burdening our loved ones.
    4. have less freedom of speech, so that we don't need to listen to the truth about what people are telling us about our CPF.

    I am not anti-PAP. Their policies make SINGAPORE very rich to the extent that the GARHMEN can keep losing money in our GIC investments and still not feel the pain. Just that I am still very poor in cash, but whenever i look at my CPF statement, I feel rich. Hopefully I can live till 67 or longer so that I can draw out $1200 every month, and maybe even sell back the remaining lease on my shoebox apartment, so that I no need to pick up cardboard and drink cans when foreigners take over my job.

    I think a lot of sheeple think the same way i do.

    PAP huat ah!!

    My relative only 56 just passed away.cancer. i think he just smelled his cpf and then off he goes. probably his family is sad. i worked in hospital. saw many young people 20s, 30s and 40s. many got diisease. waiting time only. i wonder how many of us worker can really live up to 67 and enjoy that $1200 a month. 'THEY' presume that in future economy will be so bad and thus increasing our Retirement Account or whatever. so will that 1200 be enough?? ME?? awaiting 3 more years to get that maybe $5k. Yahooooo. probably get a brand new motorbike coe and will sell to the highest bidder(hopefully by that time GAHMENT will allow coe to be sold separately once bought.


    Please take it as a joke. Just lamenting

    I guess you are not aware... If u knock down any "public" property you get to pay for its replacement... Traffic light post is ok... Try knocking out the controller at the junction... It's better known as junction.... Hint... It's 5 figures...

    The Hammers did raise some questions on Motorcycle COE, but stupid ones. Like will Garhmen consider segregating the motorcycle COE to different class, i.e. 2b 2a and 2. knn, use a bit of brain la. No brain then come to Singapore Bike Forum and read why motorcycle coe shouldn't be split into 3 category.

    Someone suggested this to me about the motorcycle COE crazy rise. There are still a lot of non EURO IV bikes especially 2-strokers. The only way to get these 2-strokers off the road is to price them off the street. Repairs and restoration for most 2-strokers are still quite affordable. So the only way is to make the price of COE to become extremely exorbitant so that these owner would not be able to keep these bikes on the road.

    What do you think?

    Uncle Biker, I trust you have put in honest work to have that amount of yours to be "escrowed" inside the Garhmen piggy bank. Like a famous epitaph would describe us both

    "Where you are now, I once were. Where I am now, you soon will be"

    I am still some years away from 67. But my current CPF OA is $0. Yes. Its ZERO cos my HDB mortgage loan zaps everything from the OA every month. So is my spouse. Hers have been a glaring ZERO since few years ago when she stopped working.

    Garhmen say next time can pledge property to fulfil minimum sum. I got another 17 years to go on my loan and will probably need to do cash top-up for my loan in 4 years time (when my employer CPF contribution reduces due to age bracket). When I fully redeemed my loan when I am 56, hopefully I won't be replaced by a cheaper Pinoy or Bangaladeshi. From 56 to 67 is only 9 years, if I can eat Maggi Mee everyday (at work and at home) and stay at home dun go out for the nine years, I probably can save up somemore in order to have a withdrawal of $1200 per month from my RA (CPF) when I am 67.

    Makes me happy just thinking about it.

    PAP Huat Ah!!

    P.S. on the point of bequeathing CPF. I always have a question but dunno who to ask. OA and SA can be withdrawn when a member dies. However, MA cannot, it will only be transferred to the nominee. What happens when someone dies without a nomination or when he or she has no one to nominate? Ah Gong makan everything?
