Our group visited a Barangay in Pasig and Taguig for our Project Citizen. It’s so sad how people don’t abide to even the simplest rules. There’s this “no loading and unloading” sign but jeepneys still stop for passengers. The problem here lies in both the driver and the passengers, but maybe we can just translate the signage in Filipino: “bawal magbaba at magsakay.” Perhaps they’ll understand.
There’s also this “no parking on both sides” sign but who follows it? No one. How ironic that the police station is just across the street yet you see tricycles parked on both sides.
And the most appalling thing we observed: traffic enforcers started to do their job only when they saw us taking pictures! How irresponsible can that be?
How can we expect to progress, then, with this kind of attitude?blog comments powered by Disqus
