I still think that the U-Turn slots were better

I'm now making better time going from Diliman to Bagong Ilog and vice-versa w/o the U-turns. Problema na lang yung Ateneo/Miriam segment.

I just had a look at google earth. We don't have a railroad going through the ports?

Our politicians don't like trains kasi mahina ang tongpats at hindi irregular ang paayos di gaya ng mga kalsada.

pwede bang gawin na lang 21 ang age ng driver to get license? i notice that students from well known univ  also contribute to traffic.

We still have some rails going to and inside the port area (from Tutuban station) but large portions of it have been removed by squatters and land developers who built buildings and malls over tracks...

The old tracks passed through Moriones from the Tutuban station


pwede bang gawin na lang 21 ang age ng driver to get license? i notice that students from well known univ  also contribute to traffic. 

Hindi driving age ang dapat baguhin dito... kung hindi yung process ng pagkuha ng license. Dapat ang makakakuha lang ng license ay yung totoong marunong magdrive.

We all learn to drive. We just pick up all the bad habits along the way.

Olats parin talaga ang Ateneo traffic. Abot hanggang Luzon Avenue yung traffic umikot na lang ako sa Maginhawa-Anonas-20th Avenue tapos liko ng P.Tuazon at labas ng Katipunan lagpas ng Quirino. Kakairita.

Pano pa kaya kapag natayo na yung MIIS ba yun sa bandang Country Style. Haaaaay.

Most just learn how to operate a vehicle... driving one is a totally different thing.

I have met PUV drivers who have driven most of their lives and yet have no idea what the different traffic signs mean.
Some also didn't know that making a turn from the opposite side of the lane is a traffic violation (i.e. Making a left turn from the outer lane or a right turn from the inner most lane). They all believe that it's ok as long as the road is clear and they signify their intention to turn before hand (like using their turning/signal lights).

I hope that someone in the government has enough brains to think of a long term solution for the port congestion problem. Otherwise, it will just happen again during the holiday season and we'll have to suffer from even more traffic jams.

Either make a dedicated road (Full truck only roads, not just lanes) for trucks in and out of both sides of manila, move the port somewhere else, or re-extend the train tracks from the trainyard in divisoria. If they need more room, they an always do land reclamation.
Truly superior pilots are those who use their superior judgment to avoid those situations where they might have to use their superior skills.

^Move the port to Subic (for the ships coming from the west) and Casiguran in Aurora province (for those coming from the east) and build a railroad to connect both and to Manila.

But seriously, this is the sort of infra that we need. Less trucks on long routes as well if they are able to pull it off.

No wonder the balikbayan box my aunt sent to us is taking forever to get here.

A railway to and from the ports would be the best solution to this problem. But that will require enormous funding and steely eyed political will, the latter being a little hard to come by from our current president.

speaking of balikbayan boxes. we have three boxes shipped via Norcal Cargo which we can't track. Their Manila counterpart said that they are no longer connected to them and their business have been closed since last year.

Norcal cargo's US number is disconnected. wat...the...fcuk.
