Here is one of the photos she shared:

These Photos Exhibit the Terrible Traffic Commuters Have to Brave Everyday

This is just one example of the terrible traffic commuters have to endure just to get to work or school, everyday. It is sad that Filipino commuters have just become so used to this. But what is the root of this problem anyway? Is it always renovations, bad roads, or weather? Or are we also doing something wrong?

The photo above, for example, seems a pretty manageable problem if only motorists practiced a bit more respect and adherence to the rules. What is wrong with this intersection? Why are the vehicles all facing in criss-crossing directions? As seen in the photo, there seems to be a working stoplight above the street. So what caused this huge tangle of cars and jeepneys and motorcycles?

Here is the rest of AC’s post:

Traffic really can be terrible, but when you come to think of it, are we causing the problems ourselves due to our lack of discipline? What can we do to help alleviate the traffic problem in our country?

What do you think? We’d love to hear your thoughts.
