Loading/unloading bays need declogging

Please look into the situation in front of Farmers Market in Cubao,

Edsa southbound, where MMDA buses allow passenger buses to load and unload passengers for extended periods of time, causing heavy traffic. The traffic enforcers may have changed their uniform but they are still useless when it comes to manning traffic.—Rudy de Guzman, Better Living, Parañaque City

Noisemakers irk resident

Pedestrian overpass needs repairs

The pedestrian overpass in front of Shopwise on Commonwealth Avenue needs to be repaired. The steel floor has some cracks which may result in accidents or injuries to pedestrians. Whoever is in charge of its maintenance should inspect and do the required repairs before anything unexpected happens. The MMDA should also prohibit vendors from selling their wares on the pedestrian overpass.—Nick Illescas, Barangay Holy Spirit, Quezon City

Crackdown on sidewalk squatters pushed

How about a sincere drive to give back sidewalks to pedestrians in

Mandaluyong City?—E. Ramos, 36, Mandaluyong City

    Traffic sa Gabby’s? Tagal ng ganyan problema sa Kalentong.  Manhid na kami sa pagka-inutil ng mga baranggay officials dyan – kasama ng mga inutil nilang mga amo sa city hall.  Yung dalawang mag-amang Abalos na naging dynasty na ang paghahari sa Mandaluyong, may nagawa ba?  wala!  o, eh, ano tawag dun? eh di INUTIL!

    Vendors lang ba problema sa Gabby’s? Eh yung mismong gitna ng kalsada paakyat ng tulay sa Sta. Ana ginagawang terminal ng mga jeep biyaheng Pedro Gil-P. Faura, walang pumapansin na mga pulis at traffic enforcer. Businahan mo mumurahin ka pa ng mga barker. Dapat siguro may patumbahin jan sa mismong gitna para lang matigil ang kaswapangan ng mga jeepney driver diyan.

    Illeggal vendors should not be tolerated. Illegal nga eh. What are oofficials doing about them? What about protecting those who obey rules and pay for stalls and pay taxes? I’m glad people are complaining about the noise caused by tricycles. They should be banned near residebtial hones and hi-ways.
