Image
The Facebook page of ANC 24/7 is asking for its reader's suggestion on how to solve Metro Manila's traffic problem.


This got me thinking, "what is the best way to solve Metro Manila's traffic problem?" It's easy to make suggestions, what's hard is the implementation and the cost of implementation. So what is the the best way to solve Metro Manila's traffic problem and the most cost effective solution?

Punitive Fines
First of all, any implementation will definitely cost money, a lot of money. The cause of the traffic mess is the people themselves so it's only right that those causing the traffic problem should be fined and the fine should hurt. That way, the fines will pay for the cost of enforcing the law.
The fines should start at P500 and goes up every week if you don't pay it within 15 days. To enforce this and prevent people from ignoring the fine. It will be tied to their driver's license or car registration. They cannot renew their d…

Tulfo brothers threaten Raymart, Claudine

From ABS-CBN News.com

MANILA, Philippines (3rd UPDATE) - Brothers of Ramon Tulfo on Monday vowed to exact revenge against celebrity couple Raymart Santiago and Claudine Barretto for allegedly mauling the columnist in a melee at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3 on Sunday.

Erwin Tulfo said on their T3 show on TV5 that Santiago should expect he and his brothers to go after him. "Abangan mo ang bwelta ng Tulfo brothers," he said.

He also said that Santiago's wife, Claudine, will also feel the Tulfos' wrath.

"Ipagdasal mo lang sana, ipapayo ko sa iyo at sa asawa mo, huwag ka munang lumabas ng bansa dahil kapag nagpangabot tayo sa NAIA Terminal 1, Terminal 2, Terminal 3, tatamaan at tatamaan ka, wala akong pakialam, pati asawa mo tatamaan sa amin. Ipagdasal mo na lamang huwag tayong magkrus ng landas," he said.

Erwin Tulfo added that his brother would not have been mauled by Santiago's group if he was with his brother.

"Siguro kung nagkasabay kami sa eroplano kahapon, pareho kaming galing Davao, nauna lang iyung utol ko, hindi mangyayari iyon pare ko. Dalawa lang patutunguhan noon. Either iinterview ako sa loob ng kulungan o iinterview ako, nagsasalita ako ngayon," he said.

He also accused the couple of lying about what transpired at the terminal.

"Isa lang ang mensahe ko sa iyo, Mr. Santiago at Miss Barretto. Saksakan kayo ng sinungaling. Kahit sa airport, kahit sinong tanungin ninyo doon, natatawa sa inyo dahil hindi nauna iyung kuya ko nagbitaw ng suntok. Lalo na kay Claudine. Wala sa ugali ng Tulfo manakit ng babae. Napakasaksakan ng sinungaling mo at ikaw Mr. Santiago, makalas ang loob mo dahil kinuyog niyo ang kuya namin," Erwin said.

Raffy, another brother of Ramon Tulfo, hurled invectives at Santiago also on T3 and said the actor should hope they they won't meet in public.

He said his brother is an Aikido martial arts expert and wouldn't have been mauled if the fight was one-on-one.

"Sinuwerte lang kayo dahil andami niyo. Huwag lang sana tayong magpang-abot sa mall," he said.

"Idasal mo, hijo de P.I. ka. Huwag lang tayong magkita sa mall, ipagdasal mo iyan. Tumirik ka ng kandila mula ngayon, huwag mag-krus ang landas natin, P.I. ka," he added.

Ben Tulfo, meanwhile, challenged Santiago and his companions to a free-for-all.

"Sa akin, isa lang ang gagawin ko, Raymart pakinggan mo ang sasabihin ko sa iyo. Binabangga ko ang mga kriminal, mga mamamatay tao, pero kung gusto mo, malaking warehouse na sarado, maga-antay ang mga ambulansiya, last man standing, walang lalabas sa loob, magsasara tayo ng pinto, titignan ko ang galing mo. Tandaan mo ito," he said.

Raymart fears for family

Santiago said he now fears for his family.

"Narinig ko po. Normal na tao lang po tayo. Siyempre po natatakot para sa mga anak ko, sa asawa ko," he told TV Patrol on Monday night.

"Hindi naman po ako sanay sa mga ganiyang klaseng away. Ang sa akin lang po, kaya nangyari iyon, pinrotektahan ko lang po iyung pamilya ko," he added.

Ramon Tulfo, meanwhile, has came to the defense of his brothers for threatening Santiago and Barretto on air.

He said his brothers were merely protecting him because he was the aggrieved party.

“Hindi mo masisisi iyan dahil kadugo ko iyan eh. Isang pusod lang kami, isa lang ang pinanggalingan namin. Pero sinabi ko nga sa kanila dahan-dahan na magsalita dahil tapos na ang pangyayari. Mas malakas ang public opinion kaysa gumanti tayo,” he said.

Ramon Tulfo sues Raymart, Claudine

Ramon has filed charges of grave coercion and physical injury against Santiago and Barretto, as well as a number of their companions, over the brawl at NAIA-3.

Tulfo also blamed NAIA security personnel for the injuries, including a swollen eye, he sustaine.

He appeared before the Pasay prosecutors office on Monday, saying he initially didn't want to file charges against the couple but changed his mind after alleged further verbal abuse from Barreto.

Tulfo said his right temple and jaw are still swelling and also complained of pain in his neck.

He said he only wanted to document Claudine's alleged outburst at an airline employee after their luggage was delayed.

Santiago and Barretto have denied provoking the fight and insisted it was Mon Tulfo who first kicked Barretto. Claudine has also denied cussing at Cebu Pacific ground personnel for their delayed baggages. - with reports from Atom Araullo and Jenny Reyes, ABS-CBN News
