Other Places You Can Be Freely Single At Besides EDSA
Being single is fine and dandy unless you have to travel through EDSA nowadays. As if the troublesome and tiresome traffic in the country wasn’t hurtful enough the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) recently banned cars with only a single passenger on board during rush hours “Bawal na ang single sa EDSA”.
It was on Tuesday that the MMDA announced that the Metro Manila Council has approved the high occupancy vehicle (HOV) scheme where "only those vehicles with two or more passengers would have the privilege to traverse EDSA.” The dry-run for the policy will start on Aug 15, 2018, so well and beware for the single people.
So kung lumuwag ang Edsa ibig sabihin maraming single?— Sam Gogna (@sam_yg) August 15, 2018
In reaction to this shocking news, the netizens took to social media to reflect their opinion on the new ban, some took it lightly and paid no attention to it, however, the other half didn’t take it that light...at all.
This banning of single passenger cars in EDSA for a bandaid solution is super solusyon ng tamad mag-isip.— Ethel (@econcepcion) August 9, 2018
Like when a bus of students got into an accident on the way to a field trip eh let’s ban field trips ang policy na naisip. Ang husay.
Bakit kaya sila ganyan?
