MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – This is not the first time we’re reporting about a blunder by the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA), because the agency had many previous blunders — from building that “footbridge to Heaven” In Kamuning, Quezon City to bannning provincial buses along EDSA.
This time, MMDA has issued a new directive setting the speed limit on many roads and highways in the metropolis to 60 Kilometers per hour.
Among the many thoroughfares included in this new rule is, of course, the busiest of them all, EDSA.
The Adobo Chronicles wanted to seek comments about this issue from our experts — the commuters themselves.
They were unanimous in their verdict. Here’s what they said:
“Why is there a need to set a 60KPM speed limit along EDSA when the actual flow of traffic is already at 6KM per hour?”
Yet another brilliant blunder by the technocrats at MMDA.
