MMDA To Implement New Scheme To Permanently Solve EDSA Traffic

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Yellow lanes. Coding. Provincial bus ban. Nothing seems to work to bring about a smooth flow of traffic along EDSA, Metro Manila’s busiest and longest thoroughfare.

Finally, the technocrats at the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) have come up with a new scheme which they are very confident will permanently solve EDSA’s traffic nightmare.

Patterned after the HOV (High Occupancy Vehicles) and carpool lane policies in place in the U.S. and other developed countries, the new MMDA scheme will throw out all traffic regulations in place and    enforce a new, foolproof lane designation scheme from end to end on EDSA.

There will only be three designated lanes, one each for singles, those in a relationship, and those whose relationship status is complicated.

MMDA says the idea was inspired by Facebook.
