Police visibility needed in Las Piñas
Snatchings have become rampant in Las Piñas City, especially during early mornings when office employees wait for their rides in waiting sheds and on streets. In one case that occurred last week, a female employee of Chevron waiting for a bus in a waiting shed across from Angela Village, was robbed of her bag containing her iPhone, credit cards and driver’s license, among others, by knife-wielding men riding in tandem on a motorcycle.—Rick, Las Piñas City
Where did the money go?
The roads on President Avenue and El Grande in BF Parañaque are in disrepair in spite of the millions of pesos in road maintenance fees being collected by the association through nonresident stickers.—Ricky, Parañaque City
Do-nothing barangay officials
Barangay 27officials in Caloocan City are not doing their job. There are a lot of cars that are double-parked, gambling activities go unabated while uncovered and clogged canals and dog waste proliferate.—J. Cruz, Marcela, Caloocan City
Chaotic road conditions
The mayors of Cainta and Taytay seem to be oblivious to or don’t care at all about the chaos and traffic conditions on East Bank Road along Floodway. Ambulant vendors, welding shops, junk shops, hardware stores, tricycle terminals and car repair shops have all occupied the street. The street has also been converted by people living on the street into their garage.—Art Lipio, Angono, Rizal
No room for pedestrians
A lot of sidewalk vendors and parked cars clog the road near Edsa MRT and LRT stations, leaving only a narrow space for pedestrians.—Rodolfo Rubio, Pasay City
Monday morning blues
Officials of Barangay Sta. Teresita close a portion of Mayon Avenue in Quezon City to traffic for their flag ceremony every Monday. This is an inconvenience for people who are in a hurry to get to work. They should hold this inside their gym so that it would not affect working people.—Jr., 30, Manila
