Apathetic officials

Makaturing Street in Quezon City is full of jeeps and informal settlers. What makes the situation worse is that it has the blessing of the barangay captain, councilors and police. Please help, Metropolitan Manila Development Authority and Mayor Herbert Bautista.

PUJ drivers court danger

Calling the attention of traffic enforcers, police officers and transportation officials regarding public utility   jeepneys (PUJ) that have turned Masaya Street (near Elliptical Road in Quezon City) into a garage. This is also the case with the outer lane between Kalayaan Avenue and Maharlika Street. They pose a hazard to other vehicles turning into Maharlika and Masaya Streets. Aren’t operators of passenger jeepneys required to have their own garage before their application for a franchise is approved? On top of this, jeepney drivers travel at night without turning on their headlights. Can the MMDA post the number of drivers they have apprehended for this violation?

Trip-cutting in Valenzuela City

I just want to complain about the jeepneys in our area which ply the T. de Leon/Ugong route. Instead of going to SM Valenzuela, they stop at a terminal in Karuhatan and make you transfer to another jeep which will take you to the mall for an additional fee of P5.

Guardrail needed in Cubao

SM Cubao management should put a safety guardrail around a protruding fire hydrant at its building facing Seafoods Island. A pedestrian almost broke his leg when he accidentally bumped into the hydrant.

Car shop takes over street

Our street has been turned into an extension of a car repair shop. This poses a risk to our health but barangay officials can’t do anything to put a stop to the practice.

    They have the blessings of the Barangay Captain and the Chief of Police because, “mapagkukuwartahan yan”, isa pa dagdag boto sa susunod na eleksyon. Igan, lahat na vendors may tong sa Barangay at sa Hepe ng Polis. May kobrador sila (taga kolekta ng pera) araw-araw. Pumunta ka sa simboryo pag araw ng Pintakasi, baka matatagpuan mo doon ang Pangulo ng Barangay o di kaya ang Hepe ng Polis lakas nilang pumusta sa manok.

    Mahirap talagang madisiplina ang mga Pilipino kapag ang mga autoridad ay nasusuhulan. Habang buhay na sigurong ganito ang magiging buhay ninyo diyan sa Makaturing Street. Ang mga anak ninyo ay ganito na rin ang kalalakihan. Kawawang mga bata! Hindi na sila makakaranas ng maayos na pamumuhay. Di rin sila magkakaroon ng disiplina dahil sa mga napapansin at nakikita nila.
