AS an electrical engineer, I welcome the tips offered by Bulbir Singh in a letter under the heading “It’s time we walk the talk” (StarEducate, March 16).
We need to pay close attention to our transportation needs. While more should be done by the relevant authorities to improve the public transport system, we as individuals can also do our bit for the environment.
We should walk or cycle when travelling short distances and rely on public transport at other times.
One should carpool or work from home whenever possible.
We could perhaps make it a point to have only one car in each household as doing so would reduce the level of pollution and congestion on our roads. If possible, we should attempt to get “green” cars.
Air-conditioners should be turned off as that is one way of saving fuel and power.
Save energy and minimise the effect of any price hike in electricity.
