Before I begin, I would just like to know this? would having your license expiry date coinciding with your birthday date reduce the road accidents? and now which one is more important, utilize the resources to reduce road accidents or birthday and expiry date? Now l begin.
To me this is the joke of the week, you might not agree with me but i really think this is a farce coming from our Transport Minister.
The relevant minister revealed that soon our license expiry date will coincide with the driver's birthday date, when i read the news, two things came to my mind, firstly as if the transport minister has nothing better to do or as if we Malaysian road users were okay with traffic woes and our transportation systems or secondly the gomen was such a darling that you would want to keep them for another term.
Come on when you are eligible to get your license to drive or to ride, you shall then be considered a responsible adult and the onus it on you to remember your license expiry date, if you can play Angry bird on your smart phone, i am rather sure you know how to enter your license expiry date on your "reminder" right? why should you be spoon fed?
If you forgot, you pay the fine, as simple as that...if you broke the traffic rules,you pay the summons as stipulated in the law, please don't wait for the discount but they again once a while they sure give discount one lah
Now on the hindsight, can the same ministry make my road tax expiry date to coincide with my birthday date as well? Or may be the gomen can allow me to submit my income tax return on my birthday date too,,,,,,,,,,,,how sweet the gomen can be, kan?
By the way, i hope they won't tell us that they would need millions to configure the computer programs to accommodate the new system..........
