Finally the Metroplitian Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has found a solution that would end this nightmare.

Effective September 1, 2018, MMDA will implement a new color-coding traffic scheme that would designate specific lanes to members of groups such as the Duterte Supporters (DDS), the Dilawan (Yellows), the LGBT and the heterosexual communities.

By segregating motorists from these communities, MMDA hopes to ease traffic on EDSA. Permanently.

Special care will be given to the lanes designated for DDS to ensure that they will be smooth-sailing throughout their commute, rush hour or not.

It pays to be a Duterte supporter!

Now, singles are under attack in Metro Manila!

In a desperate attempt to finally solve the nightmarish traffic in the Metropolis, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) is proposing to ban single car drivers on EDSA during rush hours.

An MMDA spokesperson told The Adobo Chronicles that this brilliant plan will decongest Metro Manila’s main thoroughfare by almost 50%.

Why didn’t anybody think of this before?

Here’s to married bliss driving!

Under the policy, set to be implemented this month, only vehicles with two or more passengers would have the privilege to traverse EDSA.

Soon after the new policy was announced, sales of mannequins rose by almost 100%, something that puzzled both the mannequin vendors and the MMDA.

Authorities cannot figure out what the mannequins will be used for.  Can you?
