Now that the driver-only ban along EDSA is in full effect thanks to MMDA — with nearly 3,000 drivers reportedly caught on the first day of the dry-run for violating the new policy — it’s time to get creative with how to avoid getting caught. Of course, the MMDA has announced it will suspend the full implementation of the traffic scheme on August 23. But that does not mean it’s been scrapped altogether. Here, then, are some of the suggestions Pinoy netizens have made to work around this ban:
Mga magkano kaya yun mga ganitong sticker 😊
For sale now in Shopee!
They look like real people anyway!
Or an inflatable doll
Hulihin pa rin kaya ako ng MMDA sa EDSA pag kasama ko si Jesus? Bawal na daw kasi driver-only private cars eh 😂😜😎
“Kasama ko boss kong si Lord Jesas!”
Act like you can see “people”
“Mayroon akong kasama… Hindi mo ba nakikita? Nandiyan lang siya o…”
Bring your pet
“Technically, my pet is my passenger.”
Pretend to be pregnant
“Technically, my baby is my passenger.”
Open your car for business
They pretty much asked for this, anyway…
