The government has a brilliant idea to reduce traffic by half…




It is obvious that the current Number Coding Scheme by the MMDA is no longer working as heavy traffic has become a daily routine for millions of commuters in Metro Manila.

A number of solutions have been implemented by MMDA to remedy the incessant problems — MRT Bus, Zipper Line, MRT Beeps Cards, exclusive roads for trucks, as well as expanding the Number Coding Scheme. All that has not been very effective or almost insignificant if at all.


 

The latest idea, suggested by no other than Pres. Aquino, is to implement the Odd-Even Scheme.

Ang akin po: Ang pinakaradikal dito ay hatiin ang bilang ng bumibiyaheng sasakyan — salitan ang pagbabaybay ng odd at even na plaka sa ating mga kalsada kada linggo. Pihadong luluwang ang trapik dahil kalahati ng sasakyan ang mawawala (The way I see this, the most radical solution would be t implement an odd-even scheme based on the license plate numbers of vehicles. Traffic flow will surely ease up, because half of the vehicles would vanish from the streets). – Pres. Aquino

We believe there is a more efficient way to de-congest EDSA but what the government is looking is an immediate and clear-cut execution that has an effect, regardless if it is palatable to the driving public.

      Since the primary objective of traffic management is to speed up the flow of vehicles on the road, there are three solutions. First, decongest the roadnetwork. The most idiotic way to implement this is the odd/even scheme, which could only come from someone whose mental capacity cannot go beyond the average. Pag inimplement mo odd/even sa kalsada, dapat implement mo.rin iyon sa mag public and private offices, schools, business establishments, etc. Kaya napipilitang gumamit ng private vehicles ang mga taong may kakayahan ay dahil napakasama ng public transport system na dahil naman sa corruption. Saan mo pasasakayin ang mga ito? Palibhasa ang mga namumuno sa gobyerno ngayon ay hindi sumasakay sa public transport vehicles at exempted din sila sa odd/even.
      .Second, expand the road network in the country. Kung di na sapat ang at-grade space available for new roads, palawakin ang skyway network. Of course pwede rin mag-expropriate.
      Third, palawigin ang mass transport system at gawing convenient, reliable, at comfortable.

      Hay buhay! Tama talaga na imcompetent ang namumuno sa gobyerno ngayon.

    bawas ng kalahati ang sasakyan, wala na din masasakyan ang mga magco commute haha

  9. Zaq says:

    Reduce traffic by half of those who can only afford one car. Mga mayaman, wala bawas, change car lang sila. Ganun naman kahit coding di ba?

    • Kanto Terror says:

      Dude di lahat ng may sasakyan mayaman. Merong middle class 1 car per family lang ang kaya and very important sa everyday life like hatid buong family into school and work.

    • Zaq says:

      Exactly, yung 1 car family lang ang affected ng odd-even. Yung multi-car people, change car lang.

    • I think damay din yung multiple car families. I know one family who has 5 cars, one for each member (3 kids, mom and dad). They use all 5 every day. Basically odd-even scheme will reduce their usage by half.

    Ang hina ng ulo ng Presidente. Odd-Even para kalahati kaagad ang traffic.

    Eto pang isa para sa iyo. Ang trabaho sa isang lingo ay hatiin din sa dalawa. Parang Odd-Even din, para hati din kaagad ang traffic. Yung iba papasok ng M-W-F, yung iba ay T-Th-S. Galing ano!!!

    Di mo naisip? Meron naman shifting ng pasok. Yung iba papasok ng 7am, yung iba papasok ng 9am. At saliwa din ang uwian. At di mo kailangan ng Odd-Even dito. At least lahat pwedeng gamitin ang sasakyan nila. Magkaiba lang ng oras ng pagbiyahe para di sabaysabay.

    • asterisk says:

      ano naman ang solusyon mo? puro ka lang puna.

    • @asterisk

      Eh di wala, asa pa jan. Ang pinas ay binubuo ng mga taong mahilig sa ‘madali’ o ‘easy’. Example, mas madaling pumuna kesa magisip ng paraan o Mas madaling manisi sa iba kesa sisihin ang sarili kasi nga naman mahirap magbago ng sarili kailangan ng effort hahaha :)

    Hi Abe, it should be Beep and not Beeps.

  12. angelique says:

    hindi lahat pero karamihan ng pilipino puro reklamo, walang displina… yun ang dapat unang aayusin. kahit anong batas ilalagay mo pag utak abo at sa ugaling pilipino ngayon, walang mangyayari.

    pangalawa, alam naten lahat, public transpo, mrt, lrt, etc., number one priority ayusin para ayaw mo ng mag drive ng kotse.

    pangatlo, pag walang garahe sa sariling bahay, may extra kang babayran sa renewal ng auto mo. hindi naten pagbawalan magka kotse ang taong walang garaje. pero pribiliheyo po ang magkakotse hindi ito karapatan.

    pangapat, road worthiness ng kotse. alam rin naten lahat siguro 50% or more na nasa daan ngayon bulok na at hindi yan papasa sa matinong inspection.

    lol

  13. kwatogs says:

    Kalahati daw agad mawawala. Bobong presidente nito. Di mo ba naisip na madami ang hindi lang iisa ang sasakyan . MInsan 2 hanggang lima pa. So ganun din..Pa xray mo utak mo abnormal kang presidente

  14. brave says:

    kung popondohan lang pde naman gumawa ng kahit dalawa skyway plus the odd even scheme..wag lang sana magbabayad pa tayo sa toll nyan pde namang kunin ang budget sa mga donasyon sa yolanda na hindi pa maipaliwanang ni mr.palengke kung san na napunta…

    Congratulations mr. president! that’s a very good solution! hopefully those who own only 1 vehicle will be inconvenienced enough to leave MM and relocate to a city with less cost of living. I’m sorry for them but MM belongs to the rich (i don’t care whatever means) and/or productive members of society. with all the convenience and better living that MM provides, it’s a privilege and reward to live here. if you don’t have enough money or are not competitive enough, you don’t belong in this city. please move somewhere where you can afford the cost of living.

    Si ASTERISK. Hindi binabasa ang mga sinulat ko. Nagtanong pa kung ano ang solusyon ko. Ako na lang ba ang nag-iisip? Palibhasa nga-nga lang.

    Mga kaibigan ko nga pumapasok na sa Makati bago mag 7am. 4pm pa lang, pauwi naman. Salisi siya sa mga pumapasok ng 9am at umuuwi ng 5pm. Kung ang kalahati ay naka-shift ang schedule, eh di hindi sabay-sabay ang lahat ng 9am.

    Eh may pinakita pa sa TV news na may truck ng basura sa EDSA sa araw. Nakipag-sabayan pa. Eto mga simpleng problema ay dapat mailipat ng ibang oras na alanganin.

    Ang mga truck naman ay sa gabi dapat lang ang biyahe. Lahat ng delivery dapat ay sa gabi/madaling araw gawin. Huwag makipagsabayan sa mga pumapasok sa opisina. Tutal mga delikado ang mga ito at nawawalan ng preno. Para di makadisgrasya ng maraming tao sa araw.

    Marami namang paraan kung gugustuhin. Maraming dahilan kapag ayaw ma-solusyunan.

    Who will like to drive to work if the public transportation is adequate and convenient, improve public transportation first before suggesting the odd even scheme,that will be more logical, pls put some IQ in your head.

  20. kingston Memory says:

    Ayusin muna ang public transport system. Hindi na rin maluluwangan ang kalsada dahil nabili na ng mga kapitalista ang tabi ng kalsada. Kapag may maganda maayos mabilis at sistematic na public transport. Pagandahin dagdagan ang mrt at lrt. maiisip ng ibang tao namagcommute nalang dahil less hassle at less stress. Wala kasing urban planning kaya nagkaganito. Kung babawasan naman at idedecommissioned ang mga old cars na pang public dapat may buy back plan ang gobyerno dun. Wala lang just a thought. Ayusin muna public transport bago sana magconduct ng odd even :)

  23. Just Sayin' says:

    Sir, with all due respect, you believe there is a better solution and yet you did not provide your ideas.. The problem is us Filipinos, we lack the discipline to follow the rules and regulations, specially if inconveniences us and no one is looking. I admit that I fall victim to this from time to time but I still try to do what is right most of the time. Simple queueing, pocketing small gum/candy wrappers will go along way towards breaking our bad habit.
