Note: This morning (5 August 2008) I left my condominium unit at 11:00 a.m. My first class on a Tuesday schedule is at 12:00 noon. Normally, it takes me only 10 minutes (by car) to go from my place to my class in Ateneo de Manila University. But today, it took me 1 hour and 30 minutes before I reached my class.
I blame the Metro Manila Development Authority (MDDA) officials for their irresponsible action. Much time, energy and resources could have been saved had the MMDA made proper warning and notices before they implemented their "traffic experiment."
I would like to call the attention of Mr. Bayani Fernando, MMDA Chairman, to look into this matter. Mr. Fernando has no business running for President of the Philippines if his agency, the MMDA, continue to have no regard for motorists and ordinary citizens like me.
