MMDA Lays Down Law on EDSA
Yesterday, Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) special operations commander (and resident tough guy) Bong Nebrija shared a video showing enforcers strictly, er, enforcing the yellow lane rule on buses along EDSA.
The video, which has since gone viral, was a breath of fresh air. Finally, some semblance of order along the nation’s busiest thoroughfare.
Some netizens noticed a problem, though: The footage only showed enforcers keeping public buses in check. This, many said, is unfair to the thousands of people who take public buses on a daily basis.
Well, here’s your answer: The agency isn’t singling out public buses. It is, in fact, enforcing the law on all vehicles traversing EDSA. Want proof? Look no further than Nebrija’s new Facebook post.
The MMDA officer once again took to social media to share footage from the day’s operations. This time, the clip shows enforcers flagging down private motorists entering the yellow lane. In one instance, one driver even attempts to evade the apprehending enforcers, including Nebrija himself. Check out the video below:
