Hello fellow bloggers and my dear readers, social is traffic about peoples complain and disappointment as their usual travel have to endure the effect of the new scheme being done in a dry-run phase of the most utilized, driven and clogged major road in the metropolis. Let me re-blog my previous article almost two years ago to lessen your discouragement.
It was made for a great purpose long before the millennial’s are born, to aide the moving of goods from the outer skirts of the Metro Manila to its several market distribution drop offs for further trade. People are happier before but not today. People kept the blame to EDSA which is always as serene as a pristine sea every time our Pambansang Kamao, the Manny Paquiao fights in the desert of America and also during the Lenten Season. During the 16 hours stretch of the day, we keep on hearing unconditional blame, cursing EDSA of its traffic status in every transistor radios, internet feeds, social media users uttering words of dissatisfaction and many others. But why curse a highway that can’t speak a single word?
I’ve asked myself, If EDSA could speak, we could be hearing the same words we’ve used to utter mercilessly, enduring the weather and population disturbances without any respite. If only EDSA could speak, it might be telling us in our dreams to “please stay away in my spine as i am now the oldest and the weakest link of my tributary bloodlines as almost all of you are scrambling every void space that it have that it can no longer hold.” Now we are treated to a new scheme that give a little space but a lot of complains not only from EDSA but from circumferential road 5 as well. Now there two instead of one major problem.
We don’t need to wait until EDSA could speak, we dont even need to expect that it can, for it will never can.
Traffic is a great experience we fail to manage happily. .-Paquito
