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…

Father still looking for Hyundai Santa Fe driver who shot his daughter after road altercation


From InterAksyon.com

The father of a child who was allegedly shot during a road altercation is still looking for the unidentified motorist whom he claimed seriously wounded his daughter.

In a phone interview with InterAksyon.com, the father, who refused to be identified, said he was driving his two daughters to school, with his wife when a Hyundai Santa Fe approached, its headlights blindingly bright.

On the early morning of Friday last week, the father's vehicle and the Hyundai came close to one another along M.H. del Pilar St., Barangay Bungad in Quezon City.

The father lowered his window to speak with the other driver in "a nice way," he told InterAksyon.com.Â

He said he could not remember what the motorist looked like, even though the latter rolled down his heavily tinted window slightly during the altercation.

“Brod, pwede mo bang ibaba ‘yung ilaw (Friend, can you lower your light)?” he had said. The driver’s reply, said the father, was, “Eh, ano ngayon (So what)?” “Yabang mo naman (You are arrogant),” the father had replied.Â

He then moved his car forward to give way to the motorist.

When Hyundai Santa Fe had passed, the motorist shouted, “Yabang mo rin (You’re arrogant, too)!” according to the father.

When they heard three shots, his wife immediately urged him to drive on, scared that more shots would be fired, the father said.

Moments later, they heard his youngest daughter say “Aray (Ouch).” The elder daughter then said, “Mama, may dugo, may dugo (Mama, there’s blood, there's blood).”Â

They sped towards a hospital, which the father declined to name.

His wife was praying and hugging their youngest daughter the entire time, he said. Upon arriving at the emergency room, they found that the child had a wound in her right thigh. A bullet had also pierced her back. She was immediately operated on, said the father.Â

Meanwhile, he had gone to file a report to the police, which is currently investigating the matter. But there are no updates yet, he said.

Three bullets were recovered, as well as a "shell case," he said. The child is recovering and is now able to stand up all by herself.Â

But his youngest daughter as well as all members of his family still need attention given the trauma left by the incident, the father said.Â

The incident was first reported on Facebook, when concerned citizens began sharing a post supposedly created by the father's friend.
