To Solve Traffic Mess, Senator Grace Poe Proposes Daylight Saving Time For Half The Filipinos

CEF5965F-98FE-463D-8EAE-B1CED776092D.jpegMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Today, most Americans will adjust their clocks in observance of Daylight Saving Time (DST). For this time of the year, it’s called ‘spring forward’ because they advance their clock by one hour.  In simple terms, they lose an hour for the duration of DST.

Well, Philippine Senator Grace Poe, who has been criticized for not giving President Duterte emergency powers to solve the nightmarish traffic in Metro Manil and elsewhere, has a brilliant idea.

She is proposing to establish a year-round Daylight Saving Time for half the Filipinos.

She explains:

”If half the Filipinos adjusted their clocks and advanced it by one hour, then not everyone will be going to work at the same time. Therefore, it will greatly ease traffic and travel time during commute hours.”

The Adobo Chronicles asked Senator Poe how she will determine which half of the population will be subject to DST.

“Simple lang yan (that’s quite simple). Those whose ages end in odd numbers (11, 21, 25, 59, etc) will advance their clocks.  All others will keep the normal time.”

Is this the beginning of the end of the country’s traffic problem?

  1. Hahaha then MMDA will have to stop traffic to ask for their ages…and do u think it wont tangle the traffic even more? Its practically the same as the coding system which didnt ease the traffic a bit. Regulation of new car registration like Singapore is better and it earns the govt more. BTW, no more surplus vehicles imports pls.
