The first car cooperative at Toh Yi estate was launched with a slew
of penalties aimed at the inconsiderate user.

The 125 who have expressed interest in joining the scheme will be
sharing the use of four manual 1.3-litre Mitsubishi Lancers.

But they will have to observe strict rules. For instance, anyone who
returns a car more than 10 minutes late or with the petrol tank less
than a quarter full will have to pay a $25 fine to the next user.
