Malaysian Flying Car Program Will HURT Toll Collection.
The recently announced Malaysian ‘flying car’ program which is predicted to cost RM1 million to develop will hurt the PLUS and other toll operator’s collection as Malaysians take to the sky. There will also be a huge loss in jobs for road maintenance, traffic light production and road marking/road furniture business. There might also be a need to reassign most of the staff working at Jabatan Kerja Raya (JKR) to air traffic control.
The flying car program will however create more new jobs in the production of flying traffic light, floating signboards and air traffic control.
Tyre manufacturers will see a reduction in tyre sales and factories in Malaysia might have to close down as flying cars will have little tyre wear.
First round of buyers will come from drivers living in flood prone areas. The second round of buyers will come from drivers who are always being bullied on the road. The third round of buyers will come from drivers who regularly fly around the country for work.
