Julius Caesar quotes @SG - Transportation version

"Beware the first of November"
(ACT ERP, Scene Rates doubled)
"Let us check out men that are alone,
quiet men, and such as mouth kept shut:
Yond people who secretly eat sweets have a guilty look;
Their cheeks move too much: such men are fine-able"
(ACT MRT, SCENE Men in red patrolling)
"It must be fined by the outsourced one, as in the past
I know no personal cause for Fatimahs
to fine those who were five minutes late
But for those who were really late.
Parking checks are now outsourced.
How that might change the nature we can see, there’s the commission."
(ACT Parking fines, SCENE Outsourced attendants with commission)
"What public worry can be resolved
Whose danger is denied by the mighty LTA?
Yet pedestrians shall go forth to Bugis Junction, for the road island
Is to the LTA in general as already expanded."
(ACT Bugis Junction, SCENE Overcrowded road island)
"Public transport fares raised many times before justifiable;
The workers' wages probably never has a raise but once"
(ACT Public Transport, SCENE Fare adjustment)
"Et tu, another one!"
(ACT ERP, SCENE New gantries)
"Friends, Singaporeans, countrymen, lend me your ears.
I come to ask questions, not to complain.
The evil that men do lives after them;
The good is oft interrèd with their bones.
So let it be with our public transport companies.
The noble bus and train companies
Hath told you expenses are high.
If it were so, it was a grievous fact,
And grievously hath the patrons foot the bill."
(ACT Public Transport, SCENE Fare adjustment)
"The buses are packed, so are the trains.
But public transport companies say it is acceptable,
And public transport companies are honorable people.
When that the buses have finally arrived,
they were fifteen minutes late.
First class public transport should have more punctual timings.
Yet one MP said it is acceptable,
And this MP is an honorable man.
You all did see how packed the buses and trains are
You thrice tried to get up the bus or train,
Which you did thrice failed because they are packed.
Is this first class?
Yet gahmen says our public transport is first class,
And, sure, gahmen are honorable men."
(ACT Public Transport, SCENE First class service)
"It is not meet you know how our public transport sucks.
You are not wood, you are not stones, but men.
And, being men, taking the terrible buses and trains to work everyday,
It will inflame you, it will make you mad."
(ACT Public Transport, SCENE First class service)
"There is a tide in the price of COE,
Which, taken at the peak, leads on to gahmen's fortune;
If too low, all the people in the county
will bound to drive and abandon the public transport.
On such a decrease in public transport users we are now seeing,
We must take the action of decreasing COE quotas
Or lose even more public transport users."
(ACT Public Transport, SCENE Cut in COE quota)
"A new bus lane was drawn, and the roadworks
So all over the place to block the traffic
that a depressed driver might stand up
And say to all the world, “This was a road.”"
(ACT Driving, SCENE More jammed roads)
