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)

MMDA officer carries sick child to hospital amid traffic

Aileen Cerrudo   •   January 20, 2020

Mit Javellana and her family were on their way to the hospital. Her son, Earl, was having chills due to high fever and was in need of medical attention.

But their car was not moving due to the severe traffic and they had no choice but to forcefully make their way through just to get to the hospital.

An MMDA officer, Jeremi Lukban, noticed and approached them.

“Nung malaman niyang papuntang ER, nag-offer siya na buhatin si Earl at naglakad na lang pa-ospital (When he learned that we are going to the ER, he offered to carry Earl and walked to the hospital),” Mit said in her Facebook post.

MMDA Chairman Danilo Lim lauded Lukban’s action and reminded the public to never hesitate to ask the MMDA for any assistance.

“Lagi tayong handang tumulong sa ating mga kababayan (We are always ready to help our fellowmen),” he said in his Facebook post.—AAC
