Parking, other condo facilities for all residents to enjoy

It is arguable whether those who do not drive are indeed subsidising those who do ("Car-lite endeavour: Private residential parking needs resolution" by Mr Phang Fook Ghay; April 27).

Take condo residences. When an apartment is bought, it comes with the right to park a car (or even two).

When the flat is rented out, the right to park usually goes to the tenant (or remains with the owner), or, in the case of a sale, to the new owner.

Your right to park is always there, whether you drive or not. If you choose not to use it, you cannot assert that you are subsidising others.

The same thing applies to the playground, swimming pool, gym, tennis courts, barbecue pits, clubhouse, and so on.

Let us not complicate the car-lite initiative. Singapore is already moving in that direction, with measures such as certificates of entitlement, Electronic Road Pricing and so on.
