EDSA traffic is horrendous, especially during the rush hours. Making the traffic even worse are extra-ordinary occasions like the ASEAN Summit the country is hosting.
Last night’s traffic in EDSA and in other parts of Metro Manila is no exception.
While many motorists cursed in silence as they are stuck in the middle of the dreaded and infamous Manila traffic, this veteran actress thinks she get away with anything including, what she just did last night, to escape from the Manila traffic.
Making her situation worse was, when she bragged about it on Instagram.
Maria Isabel Lopez writes on Instragram:
“beautyqueenmilDriving with hazards “on” at the #aseanlane 😃 I removed the divider cones !! Acted like an official delegate😅Then all the other motorists behind me followed! If you can’t beat ‘em, join them❤️! #nosticker #leadership #belikemaria #pasaway”
She also posted a video as proof of her exploit.
While some netizens, apparently her fans, reacted positively to Isabel’s post, just like netizen marilyn_villarruz.
“Gotta take matters into your own hands! Way to go, Bel! 🙃”
Netizens imyourasianhottie and lawrenceestrada weren’t as supportive as Marilyn above of Isabel’s as shown in the comments below.
“You proud kapa talaga teh?”be like maria”? ganun ka kabobo para ipagmalaki mo na traffic violator ka?”
“You just exposed how to easily breach the security and very simple protocol of Asean summit @beautyqueenmil You must be proud of yourself.
Meanwhile on Facebook, netizens are even contemptuous of Maria Isabel Lopez and boy did they express their anger at the actress with gusto!

Netizen Steve Py says he wants the actress not to go unpunished like revoking her license. “She should be disciplined. She’s a public figure yet she brags of mistakes that she has done..This girl is stupid and idiot. Her drivers license should be cancelled.”
While Sheik Gomoc sees it differently. “at the very least, she just exposed how stupid and how easy it is to breach asean summit’s security”
