If it ain’t broken, don’t fix it
Something just came up in mind at this hour. I meant to blog about this earlier but, anyway here it is. The recent announcement from the Land Transport Department, LTD, on the new car license plate really caught the public by surprise. My first reaction was ‘Why?’ Personally am not into car modifications or anything along that line but I just can’t stop thinking why did the department introduce it?
When the news broke on 21 May 2010 saying that smaller letters and numbers will be used as from next year, 2011, I was waiting for the answer, hoping that there will be follow-ups on why the new directive was introduced. There were more news on the matter with the recent one where the LTD explained that the timeframe to change to the new plates might be extended.
How many or which companies have been selected by LTD as the authorised company is not a big issue at all. The question is, why? Being a law-abiding citizen, I don’t mind if new law is being introduced but there should be a reason on why its being introduced. I don’t see a problem with the current ones. In fact, compared to the new ones, the current ones are better as obviously, you can spot the licence from a distance. Surely the LTD must be thinking more on how to reduce road accidents or raise more and more awareness on road safety. I say, if it ain’t broken, why fix it?
