Rampant extortion at Manila intersection

Whoever is in charge of traffic at Recto corner J. Abad Santos

Avenue and Juan Luna Street near Plaza Lorenzo Ruiz needs to be relieved because of the rampant “kotong” (extortion) going on. Traffic grinds to a halt because instead of easing the gridlock, the enforcers are busy pocketing money from drivers of jeepney plying the route. Paging Mayor Alfredo Lim.—David, 36, Manila

New uniforms, same old habits

Please look into the practice of buses who pick up or drop off passengers from across Farmers Market on the southbound lane of EDSA in Cubao,

Quezon City. MMDA enforcers allow the buses to remain in the area for long periods of time, causing heavy traffic. The MMDA may have changed the uniform of its traffic constables but they remain useless when it comes to manning traffic.—Rudy de Guzman, Better Living, Parañaque City

Early birds wait for unwitting prey

Four MMDA enforcers pounce on hapless motorists at 6:50 a.m. outside Blue Ridge B gate, Quezon City.—Edwin, Quezon City

Road block in Tondo

A junk shop on Road 10 in Tondo, Manila, puts their garbage on the road. The shop’s trucks are also parked on the street, leading to heavy traffic in the area.—Dan, Navotas City

Trash cans missing

The steel drums used as garbage cans on Friendship Route at Verdant Subdivision have disappeared. We don’t want a dirty city, Mayor Aguilar. Please bring the trash cans back.—Gino, Las Piñas

Sleepless in QC

The workers of a car establishment beside a gasoline station on Mindanao Avenue have videoke sessions every night. The music played at a very loud volume early in the morning disturbs residents in the neighboring areas. –Olivey, Project 6, Quezon City
