Since the 90’s, Metro Manila experiencing daily traffic jams. As years goes by it becoming worst due to the following reasons
- Population Growth
- Increase of car volume – since now it is easy to buy a car. We can see car loan down payment as low as 25,000.
- Driving Style
For the first two, as a simple Filipino we cannot do anything. But for the driving style, we can do a lot. The president’s order of removal of siren is a great help so local officials must act up to ease their daily problem, TRAFFIC JAM. For us, we just need to follow simple rules in order to have a smooth traffic flow.
Tip #1 Follow the Lane
Staying on the lane is very important, because the root cause traffic jam in Metro Manila is not due to the volume but it is due to clogging the road at one area.
Based on the diagram if all the vehicles who is turning left will use the left lane therefore all vehicles on the right lane can go straight without any problem.
This is very common since people think if they go first they can reach their destination earlier.
