Palace asks for more patience among motorists

MALACAÑANG urged Thursday motorists to remain calm and be more patient in the wake of the alarming traffic congestion in Metro Manila.

Communications Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. made the call after a person died in a shooting incident in Pasig City allegedly due to traffic.

"Siyempre po ang panawagan natin diyan ay para sa konting hinahon, dagdag na pasensiya at 'yung patuloy rin na visibility ng ating mga law enforcement agencies para magkaroon naman po ng deterrence. Hindi naman po natin mapapabayaan na magkaroon ng ganyang insidente ng road rage," he told reporters.

He said that traffic congestion could not be an excuse to shoot anyone.

The government has been trying to find ways to ease the traffic congestion, Coloma said.

"Batid natin 'yung ginawang clearing operations para magkaroon ng Mabuhay Lanes na mas magiging maluwag," he said.

He also noted that the Department of Public Works and Highways has suspended all the reblocking and road repair activities in Metro Manila to prevent further traffic buildup during the holiday season. (SDR/Sunnex)
