    You must have meant the expenses involved in towing broken vehicles free of charge, right? That money spent up to the time this scheme got implemented is gone now. From last month they will be recovering that expense.

    Avg 6 vehicles breaking down a day means vehicles need to be in better shape to be on a fast road. This is a good move. Well done!

    if your vehicle is not road worthy, then you must re-think of using the expressway. Authority should use this fund to make sure more safety methods implemented for motorists.
