From Wednesday, all new motorcycles have to be fitted with new In-Vehicle Units.
These are meant to make paying electronic road charges hassle free.
The smart devices can automatically top-up one’s CashCard and will also show the amount deducted each time a motorcyclist passes an electronic road pricing gantry.
The new dual mode units cost S$150 each and it is not mandatory for existing vehicles to be fitted with them.
However, they will be installed on all other new vehicles from early next year. – CNA/ms
