Hello everyone the traffic in Manila is very terrible at the rush hours, I want to take it positively but I cannot deny the fact of its negative effects. Traffic can be a positive indication (for me) that the economy is booming, many jobs are opening and many people are being hired. The more that the young professional are earning high the more the economy is being stabilized.. I guess a bit, there are lots of establishment are being build in different sites here in Manila... and I am so thankful to God for it. But the negative sides makes me really go crazy because it takes a lot of time are being tied up in the road. Well if it is safe to use the tablet while in the jeepney I guess those wasted time can be useful to do some activity here in mylot and earn some pennies. Hehehehe...

There is nothing new in our country, the same traffic despite many attempts by past administrations and this present one to solve it. Traffic is not a sign of progress, it's a sign of inability to provide effective mass transport to the people and poor planning. It's a sign of degradation because nobody would invest here, it's a sign that prices would go up because delivery of goods would spend more on gasoline and unproductive time spent on the road. Careful with your gadget on the jeep, oh yes, peace and order is another story

hehehehehe! I thnk given time... Duterte will come up with the solution. They are thinking of taking other businesses to the provinces. There are some people who already sold their cars already... but I hope and believe that the present administration can do something about t.

@luisadannointed it's not that simple, who wants his or her business taken to the province? That's a logistical nightmare plus you lose customers. Bring it where? In the middle of nowhere? It's so easy for them to say and do so many stupid solutions cause they have already lots of money pocketed

Traffic is getting worst these days. A lot of time is being wasted being stuck in traffic. I guess one of the factors is the growing numbers of cars. It's very easy for one to have a car these days.

That is so true. I just hope it will be solved, if it is really safe going surfing while riding a jeepney I might do it so my time won't be wasted, but right now that is kinda impossible.
