SAN PEDRO, Laguna—An eight-hour monstrous traffic affecting a nine-kilometer stretch of the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) occurred starting early morning on Holy Thursday because of enormous volumes of Holy Week travellers going to various destinations and two minor accidents, according to the South Luzon Tollway Corporation (SLTC) operatives.

    This is just simply crazy. Any thinking mind will find a solution to this. We’re not even close.

    • buttones

      I’m sure the DPWH have a plan…..

      • dodong1

        sabi ng DPWH, magdadag sila ng buses…lol

  • Brax82

    Wait wait! Kasalanan ni Gloria ito right?

    • Pio Pusli

      no, it was mike arroyo. he’s so fat, he’s blocking all the traffic

      • Brax82

        Yeah, kung wala na talagang masisi si Pnoy I think he would even resort to this haha.

  • leomar101

    Who cares about the traffic? Tapos ng nagpa picture si mongol aquino kahapon para makita ng mamayan na concern siya sa kapakanan ng mga travelers. hahahaha. Yon lang ang kaya niyang gawin mag inspect sa mga terminal at magpa picture.

    • marienkind

      Traffic is already a systemic problem. You sound like a kid who thinks all the problems in the world can only be solved by your parents.Helpless whelp.

      • leomar101

        An elk like you is helpless in defending an indefensible donkey. hahaha.

      • marienkind

        Your analogy does not even make sense. Are you sure you’re allowed to use your parents’ computer, kid?

      • leomar101

        hahaha, kawawa ka naman tsong(go) pa ananalogy ka pa yon pala bungengot.. Hindi rin pala na gets. First definition of terms muna neh. What is an elk? what is a donkey? then go on…. hahaha. Bakit kayong mga lunatic na yelo fanatic ay hindi ninyo masikmura kung ang sasabihin ng ibang hindi kakulay ninyo ay hindi sang-ayon sa gusto ninyong marinig. Of kors may sarili akong opinion just as you attack dogs of the mongol will demonize the enemy of your idol. I don’t get hurt or angry. Karapatan ninyo yan mag sabi ng kung anu-ano though wala rin kayong ebidensya. Nobody has the monopoly of evil. hahaha. We are still in an democratic country unless mongol like to declare the emergency power for a start. hahaha. You can freak out up to the heavens pero hindi ninyo mapagbawalan ang sino mang mag blog na hindi niyo ka kulay, malas ninyo walang cyber law. O di huwag ninyong basahin ang blogg ko kung ayaw ninyo. Bwahahaha. Pero sa totoo lang nasaktan kayo dahil ang mga sinulat ko ay tunay na dekripsyon ng inyong idol.

      • Pio Pusli

        “tunay na dekripsyon ?

        you’re still a moron and nothing, Pnoy is still the president whatever you call him

      • leomar101

        Okey presidente siya sabi mo pero mongol pa rin sa kilos sa salita at sa gawa. hahahhaa. hindi ko naman inalis ang pagka presidente niya pero hindi ko rin inalis na mongol pa rin siya. Since galit ka sa aking blogg eh magbigay ka kaya ng sarili mong deskripsyon sa idol. hahaha .What prevent you from doing it?

      • marienkind

        If, brevity is the soul of wit, you, my friend, are the NLEX of debate. Andami mo nasabi, wala pa rin laman. I don’t support Pnoy in ever move he does, but I certainly don’t blame him for everything like you do. It’s like you don’t understand how the government works so to simplify things you just go on and rant at the sole most visible person in it. If you’re really over 12, it must be very embarrassing to have you around in real life.

      • leomar101

        hahaha, the feeling is mutual. here same with me, i don’t blame anybody just like you. Now look your mongol president, presidente pa naman siya but he has nothing else to do except blaming Arroyo for 3 years na. Kahit nga semana santa hindi niya pinatawad para lang tirahin ang kanyang kaaway. He really is a real mongol ranting all the time, everywhere. For me I could write whatever I like simply because I have the right to rant for I paid my taxes so that mongoil have billions of unaccounted funds to waste. hahaha. You might be grateful to have me around for I’m one of the millions who paid taxes just that bloody politicians will have comfortable lives.

    • lolo_Jose

      since it is Good Friday, i will pray for your soul that GOD may touch your heart so as to free it from hatred and bitterness..And may the risen LORD of Easter cleanse your mind and soul as well…

      • leomar101

        Lolong Jose, para na lang sa iyong sarili ang dasal na inooffer mo.O di kayay ibigay mo na lang yan kay mongol dahil siya ang bitter at may malalim na hatred sa kanyang kaaway. Biruin mo naman pati samana santa ay hindi niya pinalampas at ginamit pa rin para patamaan ang kanyang kaaway. Kung anu-ano ang mga pinagsasabi para daw sa kanyang mga country men. Yon pala kay Arroyo rin ang ending. Eh baliw nga siya. Kagaya ng sinabi mo sana the risen Lord will cleanse his mind and soul.

    di na natuto ang mga pinoy, itong mga panahon nato is not the best time to travel at maligo sa mga pool dahil halos lahat ng tao palabas ng manila at lahat dadaan ng toll so that equals to traffic. sa pool naman napakarami nang tao, marumi na tubig.

    • farmerpo

      Kung mahal na araw, kalahati ng tubig sa pool, urea. Gandang pandilig ng lettuce at sili. Have a Good Friday.

    meron yata pulitiko na nagdasal sa Padre Pio Church sa Sto. Tomas. Mula SLEX traffic na kami kanina. tapos meron convoy ng mga SUV’s na meron kasama mga pulis/militar na backup ang umovertake sa sinasakyan namin bus na lalong nagpatraffic kasi marami sumunod sa kanila. pagdating sa Padre Pio Church meron mga pulis/militar na nagtatraffic(????) pero pinapatigil lang yung isa linya para isang linya lang ang tumatakbo kaya traffic masyado.

  • TheTuth

    What’s new? SLEX should just look NLEX.

  • aka

    OMG.

  • kismaytami

    SLEX? Hindi natural kapag walang trapik diyan.

    sa cementerio walang traffic

  • dodong1

    iisa lang solution dyan sabi ng DPWH, magdagdag sila ng mga buses para maibsan ng trapik..Lol

  • KapampangangMangyan

    Taon-taon na lang na ganito sa SLEX pag tag-uwian. Ano ba yan.T.T

  • pinoyislander

    kahit saang part ng mundo nagkakatrapik kahit sa u.s. regular trapik din nararanasan sa mga major cities. part ng pagunlad ito. accept na lang muna hanggang makaimbento ng automobile na lumilipad. move on na tayo.

    It’s God way of telling people that Holy week is not for vacation or reunion. What can’t people understand that!

  • Jerry

    It’s God way of telling us that Holy Week is not for reunion or vacation. Why can’t we see the obvious?

  • Pio Pusli

    happens all the time during holy week since i can remember, maybe 30 yrs ago. can’t the morons here learned the lesson?

  • $14334231

    mas masakit kung tinaasan ang pasahe….pero, hindi naman, kaya isipin na lang para kang nasa tour kahit na stressful ang biyahe…akala n’yo ba ang mga driver hindi rin naiinis?…aba, gusto rin nilang makapiling ang kanilang mga mahal sa buhay sa araw ng pagkabuhay ni Hesus….kaya tahimik na lang kayo…eroplano na lang kayo at menos ang delay….

  • Milo Go

    It is ridiculous to design a road to accommodate a one or two time event in one year. The solution is to straddle commuting to allow only buses or public transport on the freeways from 6AM to 1PM and the rest should be for passenger cars.

    The volume of cars and buses exceeds possibly 500 per cent of normal and you cannot design the roads and increase them by 500 per cent. There is simply no land

  • oh_noh

    Exagerrated and/or misleading…

  • tadasolo

    Here is the major problem with our freeways. They are design to handle the normal everyday traffic. But one or two times a year 1000 per cent more cars and buses want to used the same freeway at the same time and is not going to work. If you build freeways to handle 1000 per cent more traffic you will a have humongous freeway with 20 lanes on each side and there will not be spaces for our SQUATTERS.

    • HoyGago

      Bobo.

  • oh_noh

    balitang exaggerated :)

  • Brax82

    Gibain ang mga squatters area! Problema kasi sila rin yung mga ginagamit ng politiko para manalo.. Haaay Pinas…
