Sinimulan na ngayong araw ang mas pinaiigting na panghuhuli ng Metro Manila Development Authority o MMDA sa mga colorum at out-of-line na mga pampublikong sasakyan (UNTV News)

MANILA, Philippines — Personal na nag-inspeksyon si MMDA Chairman Atty. Francis Tolentino kaninang umaga sa mga sasakyang dumadaan sa southbound lane ng EDSA-Balintawak kaugnay ng pagpapaigting sa Oplan: Project Disiplina at Traffic Rules Reinforcement.

Ang resulta, nakahuli ng dalawang colorum na asian utility vehicles, isang colorum na bus at pitong out-of-line bus.

Ayon kay Chairman Tolentino, sumusobra na ang sikip ng traffic sa EDSA kaya kinakailangang paigtingin ang paninita at panghuhuli sa mga colorum o walang prangkisa at out-of-line vehicles.

Nang tanungin kung may conflict ba sa tungkulin ng ibang ahensya ng pamahalaan ang ginagawa nilang  panghuhuli sa mga sasakyang lumalabag sa batas trapiko, ang sagot ng MMDA chairman, “maaaring exempted sa ibang ahensya pero dahil sa may resolution ang Metro Manila Council na talagang nagpapasikip sa daan, mga colorum ito, huhulihin namin.”

Dagdag pa nito,  bahagi pa rin ito ng programa ng mmda upang mabawasan ang bulto ng mga sasakyan na lalong nagpapala sa trapiko sa EDSA.

“Eh kasi sobra nga ang traffic eh, pinapasok yung colorum so kailangang ihinto na ito,” ani Tolentino.

Ang mga nahuling colorum at out-of-line vehicles ay dinala sa impounding area ng MMDA sa Tomana at pagmumultahin ng anim na libong piso bukod pa sa halagang ibabayad sa impounding area.

Bagaman may itinalagang free shuttle ang MMDA para sa mga pasaherong naapektuhan ng panghuhuli.

“Wala tayong magagawa sa kanila, diskarte nila yan eh, wala pa po, galit ang mga tao,” ani Tonaldo Tiongson na isang pasahero.

Ayon din sa MMDA, gagawin nilang araw-araw ang paninita at pag-iinspeksyon sa mga sasakyan sa iba’t ibang bahagi ng Metro Manila. (Rosalie Coz, UNTV News)

QC Task Force launches ‘Bayanihan sa Lansangan’

Aileen Cerrudo   •   August 20, 2019

The Quezon City Task Force for Transport and Traffic Management has launched ‘Bayanihan sa Lansangan’ which will dispatch more buses in Commonwealth Avenue.

Aside from the severe traffic, there are also not enough buses for an estimated 30,000 – 40,000 commuters in the area.

Rene Hanolino, one of the commuters, said he spends time just waiting for a bus ride every morning.

“Mga 15 minutes, pinakamatagal na sa akin iyon, pag-aabang. Kasi talagang madami namang pasahero. Tiyaga lang naman (Around 15 minutes, that is the longest time I’ve waited because there are a lot of passengers. It takes patience),” he said.

During the first day of the implementation on Tuesday (Aug 20), authorities directed the passengers to where they should wait for buses.

Traffic czar of Quezon City Task Force For Transport And Traffic Management Ariel Inton said the heavy crowd of passengers waiting for a ride have begun to block the roads.

“Sa dami nila, bumabara sa mga private vehicles. Iyong mga bus naman, sinasalubong nila kasi dumadating dito iyong mga bus, punuan na (Because of their sheer number, they block the private vehicles. Other passengers try to get ahead by catching the bus before it reaches the stop, so its already full by the time it gets there ),” he said.

Inton added that the ‘Bayanihan sa Lansangan’ will be able to provide enough buses for passengers.—AAC (with reports from Asher Cadapan Jr.)
