Are the prime minister and deputy prime minister serious when they say that the estimated savings of RM4.4bil in fuel subsidies will go towards improving the whole nation's public transport system?
Wow! At last in Sabah, we will get an LRT system and quality public transport.
In Kota Kinabalu, the bus drivers behave as if they are racing along the Sepang Formula One circuit. Either that or they pretend to be rock star wannabes high on 'syabu' (methamphetamine). The conductors look more like drug addicts ready to mug you.
I am not generalising so maybe the 'higher ups' could take a minibus (actually a van) in Kota Kinabalu or the other towns in Sabah to get a first-hand feel.
Maybe then these 'higher ups' will see why private vehicles are simply a must. But with the oil subsidy savings now going towards improving the country's public transportation system, I can now hope (what wishful thinking) for a comfortable ride in Kota Kinabalu after 42 years in Malaysia.
Sigh. Petrol prices have already been raised. What can we do but live with it. Hopefully (hope is the only thing left), we can make ends meet.
