We’ve been running traffic stories for the past few days because there aren’t enough stories to air at 12 noon. Christmas is just around the corner so the traffic is really bad but of course Metro Manila has the worst traffic at any season.
It really gets on my nerves when I see students in Katipunan Avenue each driving their own cars. Carpooling hasn’t really taken off in the Philippines unlike in other countries. I’ve read a recent article about carpooling in Kansas. In order to encourage carpooling in the area, the commuters are entitled to a raffle promo where they can win gift checks and even theater tickets. Cool huh?
Anyhow, I won’t have to worry much about the traffic since I don’t have a car and I just live nearby my workplace, unless of course I get to buy a used car just like these San Diego cars. It would probably take me more than a few years in my job now to be able buy one.
