Right from the start almost every Malaysian and many foreigners watching knew that the multi-tiered system was too complicated and almost impossible to implement and police. But no they wouldn't listen these YB's who always know better than us ordinary folks.
Sure work one. Use your MY card. Register to get subsidy for one car. And then you foreigners can only buy 20 litres within 50 km of the borders. Ha!
One Singapore taxi driver told me that he drives his private car to JB to fill up. 20 litres at this station, another 20 at another. My car is small so I visit 2 or 3 petrol stations and Kao tim! No problem one la brother, he said.
NO IT WON'T WORK, we said.
YES IT WILL WORK AND WE START MAY 1, they answered.
And now with tails between their legs the YB's 'quietly' scrap the system. Actually, they never even really told us how the tiered system was going to function. Did they? I hope that the people who first came up with this hare-brained idea are feeling really stupid now. Oh wait. To feel stupid you need to be have intelligence first. Sorry.
