The whole Internet is reacting to the Anti-Distracted Driving Law. Though it’s understandable that the law prohibits the use of gadgets and electronic devices while driving, many are questioning the items that are being disallowed.
While a lot of Filipinos are contesting the law, some lawmakers are also saying the MMDA is overdoing it by also disallowing religious items like rosaries.
Ever since the news about the Anti-Distracted Driving Law broke out, people have been ranting on social media.
Here are what some of the things people are saying:
Ang STUPID po ng pag-baban niyo sa rosary. Pati rosaryo pinatulan. It serves as a guidance not a distraction. Think! @MMDA

#MMDA PLEASE IMPLEMENT WHAT IS WORTH IMPLEMENTING. What you want is a rubbish. With full exception to the use of phone. BUT ROSARY ETC.????????????

Maybe @MMDA should revisit Anti-Distracted Act. They should reconsider things. Multitasking is a skill and shouldn't give generic "ideas"
