3 Cost Effective Ways to Solve Metro Manila's Traffic Problem

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…

Eyewitness Footage of Typhoon Haiyan Washing House Away

Here's a video of a house being swept away by Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda).

Here's the description from the make of the video.

"Footage taken at 6am on Friday 8 November as the storm hit Hernani in Eastern Samar. Plan staff member Nickson Gensis took this while sheltering on the 2nd floor of a house less than a few hundred metres from the sea.

"Six of us took refuge on the top floor of a boarding house. Five were praying and I was filming. The others called me to pray with them but I said that I needed to document this."

"Three of our group were male and we all wore trunks so that we could swim if we needed to. We were so scared. But I thought, 'if I die, so be it'."

"It was like a huge tsunami but the water receded quickly afterwards. We ventured downstairs and outside around noon. I took shots of the boarding house we had been in because I was so thankful thank it protected me. At 2pm I started work, travelling to assess the damage to villag…

How to Help Philippines Typhoon Victims

The NY Times has compiled a list of organizations where you can donate to help the Typhoon victims in the Philippines.

I suggest you send your donations to these confirmed and legitimate organizations only.

The other day, while grocery shopping, I was approached by a lady asking me to sign something. When I asked what it was, she told me it's to help the Typhoon victims in the Philippines.

She never asked me for a donation right away, but instead, handed me a pen and a clipboard to sign my name and on the clipboard is a small brochure with a name of an organization and some photos of some children. Only when I asked what it was for did she tell me it was for donation to the Philippines (initially, I thought it was to sign up for credit card).

I have never heard of the organization before and I do not know if they are a legitimate organization. I don't even know if they were allowed by the store to be in there to solicit donations. Maybe there are legitimate, but I am always wa…

Arnold Clavio's Apology...To Someone

Arnold Clavio apologized on air for his outburst the other day when he spoke with Atty. Alfredo Villamor where he basically lambasted the guy for not knowing any more info about Janet Napoles' case considering Atty. Villamor is only handling Napoles' bail and nothing else.

DOST: 'Yolanda' can topple, uproot coconut trees, rip out roofs

There's a super typhoon coming.

From ANC|Yahoo! Philippines

(UPDATE) As the country braces itself for what could be super typhoon, Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Sec. Mario Montejo warned residents in the path of the storm to prepare for the worst.

In an interview with DZMM's Ted Failon, Montejo said the weather disturbance, with international name "Haiyan," could intensify into a powerful howler with winds reaching 200 kilometers per hour that could take down and uproot even coconut trees.

"We will not be surprised if it hits 200 (kph). Para maimagine natin na 200. Maimagine natin na what happened to Pablo. What happened to the latest typhoon in Cagayan na 132 (kph). This is much stronger. So yung mga niyog, matututmba yang mga yan," Montejo said.

He also said the storm could "rip out the roofs of houses" and old structures such as churches. Montejo also advised residents to anchor or tie down the roofs of their houses.

Motorist Beware

This has been posted by several friends and one said he was actually caught by this guy.

Beware and remember this Face! He is a MTPB positioned near Binondo Church. He will flag you down and suddenly said that you have beaten the red light. And at the same time mention in front of you the amount you will be paying for your violation, which he already summarized. Plus saying you will be needing to have seminars. Hoping you will beg him to spare you. For things you didn't commit in the first place. Let's cooperate please share... So as to get rid of this kind of extortionist working as traffic aide here in Metro-Manila. I didnt sign the ticket he gave me. I plan to complain in City hall. To give this person a lesson... please share!!!
