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.

Potential New Pyramid Scam in the Philippines - One Lightning Corporation

While it is enticing to try to make a lot of money quickly, it is also important to make sure you are not just throwing money away. Sometimes, slow and sure is better. Remember, if it's too good to be true, it probably is.
