May bad experiences ba kayo with them? Syempre madami!
I'd love to know! Sige, pati good stuff na rin, kung meron.
Madami bad experience, lalo na pag ako ang driving. LOL
1 True Story
We have a property along Timog Ave.
A few years ago, this MMDA guy would issue a violation ticket that requires us to pay up P1thou.
Some weeks, we got 2 such tickets.
The violation: the sidewalk in front of our property was "unsanitary".
Walang basura, walang parked debris/junk.
1 time, inabangan ng Guard, and challenged the MMDA guy. Tinuro ang mga dahon na obviously, did not come from our trees... dala nang hangin. Actually, while they were talking, the hangin would dagdag-bawas the leaves.
He said, after 3 weeks and over P5thou -- life would be more simple for us if we just fork over P500 every week. Kapal! (We had already sent a letter to the MMDA, deadma.)
Resolution: Into the 2nd month of racketeering up and down Timog Ave. (there must have been several of them in this racket) -- 1 MMDA guy was shot. Walang nahuli, walang nakakita. Basta there, dead on Timog Ave. in broad daylight. End of racket.
(Peksman! hindi kami nang baril)
Another True Story
ENIGMA23 tama ka dyan about letting jeeps and buses sit and sit and sit and sit and block traffic.
Go to that Service Road parallel to the Greenhills Commercial Center on Ortigas Ave... starting at Connecticut and up to Annapolis. If you will turn where Wilson ends, to go to the GH Commercial, or turn Rt to enter Annapolis St..... you must use the Service Road or else... "swerving violation".
Pagpasok mo naman ng Service Road... ta-dah! the MMDA let the jeeps and buses block both lanes of the Service Road... daig mo pa ang napadpad sa procession nang patay papuntang memorial park. Sabi ko nga eh... Mr. MMDA, hindi ka lang nakipagkwentuhan sa bus driver.. naki coffee break ka pa on the bus. What is your name para masumbong kita kay Tulfo? Naku! ayaw ibigay at ang name patch eh nakatakip nang whatever nakasabit from his shoulder.
Tinakot pa ako na ako daw ang obstructing traffic.. at umakma na bigyan ako ng ticket. So monkey-see,monkey-do -- umakma din ako at tinutukan ko nang baril.
Resolution: poor road rage management per my hubby, so my license has been confiscated and hidden by hubby. Hopia.
PERO ... LOL "friends" na kami ni Mr MMDA
Pag stuck ako doon... (of course, may driver lagi, matagal tagal na din akong suspended bec. of road rage incidents... teka, saka na lang ibang cuentos.. mahaba eh kasi madami
) -- I show my face and "wave". He waves back.. and clears the way.
Ang objective ko ngayon eh kelangan maging "friends" ko din (without the need to make tutok a gun) the other MMDA there... kasi kadalasan absent si MR MMDA... hay buhay.
