The government has earned flak from commuters and motorists over the past months for the worsening traffic situation in the metropolis.

As a response, President Benigno Aquino III has assigned the Philippine National Police’s Highway Patrol Group to take over MMDA’s duty of manning the traffic on Edsa’s six major chokepoints, drawing both positive and negative feedback from the public. Yuji Vincent Gonzales / CB
