    MMDA, please construct a footbridge on Quirino Ave between SM Fairview and Robinsons and a stop light along Belfast beside SM. These are busy roads which commuters and shoppers can traverse only by running for their lives from reckless jeepney and bus drivers.

    Many barangay halls especially in Caloocan City are useless often without people in there during daytime but at night, they just use the barangay hall as a place for drinking… and these barangays are the reason that illegal residents “squatters” are taking spaces like barangay halls which often expands its territory to the street causing road to become narrow. And these people also close random roads so as to celebrate personal/private birthdays, celebrations, death etc…

    Why is it that in towns in Laguna where there are LTO centers, it is where motorcycle riders who don’t wear helmets are more prevalent? Other municipalities however are hellbent on enforcing the   helmet law but in the towns of Pila, San Pablo City and Calamba, many riders can be seen without helmets. In San Pablo City alone, you see many colorum jeepneys parked in front of the Laguna State Polytechnic Univ (LSPU) and are even using one lane of the national highway as their terminal, causing traffic along the highway. Paging the LTO and LGUs…
