Traffic along Epifanio de los Santos Avenue, EDSA for you, is getting worse. I just can't figure out why? Why? The pace of driving has slowed to a crawl. It is so tiring and irritating to drive any segment of the 42 kilometer highway.

Some weeks ago, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has implemented strict compliance of public bus transportation companies regarding their route lines. Colorum (illegal) lines were apprehended and a lot of buses were taken off EDSA. Traffic actually became lighter.

The average travel speed at EDSA improved from 22 kph up to 65 kph which,according to MMDA report, resulted to more road accidents that lead to even greater congestion. The MMDA also said that the unbearably hot-humid-summer causes a lot of cars to overheat leading to stalled vehicles along the length of EDSA therefore causing unmitigated traffic.

Ummm.. can I therefore safely conclude that traffic at EDSA is caused by the banning of colorum buses and the unbelievable summer heat?

  1. Just trying to figure out why and how traffic can be that bad is already making me dizzy.

    Pinagbintangan pa ang init ano? How about inefficiency on the part of the MMDA?

    Ay ewan...basta ako 'tooth fairy' na ulyanin. I have pakpak though so walang problema sa traffic. Lugi lang kasi halos sunod sunod ang ipin na nabubunot...hay...

    Salamat po sa dalaw....
