The traffic situation in Metro Manila has come to worse over the years, especially along the major thoroughfares such as the Epefanio Delos Santos Avenue (EDSA), thus the decry of the daily commuters for road convenience and immediate solution to this crisis. The present administration has also been proposing to grant President Rody Duterte of ’emergency power’ to solve the traffic problem.
In the meantime, the Metro Manila Development Authority or MMDA, which is the government agency in-charged in managing the traffic in Metro Manila, in coordination with the local government units, has been clearing the sidewalks and roads of vendors and removed bus terminals along EDSA, among others, to ease traffic jams.
