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.

Bonifacio Global City Guards Arresting Two British Nationals

This video shows that Bonifacio Global City (BGC) guards arresting two British Nationals. According to the report, the 2 Englishmen (Sam and Chris) where skateboarding along Fifth Avenue when two lady policewomen instructed them nicely that they could not skate there and told them to do it at the park, which they did.

According to the Englismen, while at the park, a lady marshal shown on 1:16 of the video stopped them rudely. They explained to the marshal that the policewomen told them they can skate there. The marshal called for backup and confiscated their skateboard. One of the Englishman (Sam) said he got scared and ran off. The marshals successfully caught him as shown in the video.


According to a comment by Julie on the When In Manila page. She said,

I was there at the park when it started. A lady guard was asking them nicely to transfer since the park is not intended for skateboarders. The simple argument went wild when one of the foreigners went amok and hit the lady guard several times. Since she was hurt, she asked for immediate back-up and hearing the response, the two foreigner escaped. The chase got up to the part where this video was taken. Please, dont blame the BGC guards for their action. They were just responding to a distress call. They were just doing their job.

This is the statement from Bonifacio Global City's Facebook page.

Anyone have any other info on this? Maybe a first hand report or other videos?
