Leni Robredo strikes again!
This week, the patience of EDSA commuters have been put to the ultimate test after the MMDA started enforcing the yellow lane policy, causing confusion among motorists.
The “yellow lane policy” prohibits vehicles on the yellow lanes marked by solid lines from swerving, changing lanes or overtaking.
As a result, commuters who used the public buses ended up either late for work, absent from schools or have to miss important appointments or job interviews.
The horrendous traffic has been the subject of memes and funny comments from netizen commuters, which the local media picked up and the headlines of prime time news.
Of course, politicians like Grace Poe and lately Leni Robredo rode on the issue as a way hit the Duterte government and earn “pogi” points from the riding public.
Leni Robredo issued a press release telling the Duterte admin what to do like developing a mass transport system to encourage the public to use public transportation instead of hasty stopgaps measure like the “yellow lane policy”.
Robredo’s press release did not make solid DDS supporters and bloggers like Mark Lopez very happy.
In fact, Lopez expressed outrage on Facebook for Robredo to have the temerity to make such shallow statement which he described as more on posturing rather than problem solving.
Lopez remarked that until now, he cannot fathom how someone like Robredo deserve to be the 2nd highest official of the land, when her IQ, EQ and LQ (leadership quality) clearly rank below average level.
Lopez said Robredo or her staffs are either lazy or blind to see what the Duterte admin has been doing to improve the country’s infrastructure are all there in DOTr and DPWH websites and even in their social media pages.
Lopez told Robredo to simply browse the net, click on the social media pages of the Department of Public Works and Highways and Department of Transportation – Philippines, and she will see the grand projects in railways, airports, trains, seaports, bridges, and road network rather than open her mouth and say this and that, only to be humiliated on social media because her statement was either devoid of substance or it showed how the VP was out of touch with realities on the ground.
Lopez also accused Robredo of pandering to the interest of big business affected by the closure of bus terminals in Cubao. Hi Roxas!
Lopez lamented Robredo is part of government but rather offering solutions, she chooses to be part of the problem by issuing destabilizing or negative statements about the government.
Lopez said its a shame Robredo statement gives the impression to the public that she is against PRRD’s wishes to fix the rotten system in our highways which precipitates the traffic problem.
Lopez added the culture impunity among motorists are the primary reasons why we lack discipline in the streets and this is what PRRD wants to end.

Response to Leni Robredo, on her statement re traffic problem –
As a citizen who is personally experiencing the so called horrendous traffic in the Metro, I am outraged that you have the temerity to issue a statement that caters more on posturing rather than problem solving.
I really cannot fathom how someone like you deserve to be the 2nd highest official of the land, when your IQ, EQ and LQ (leadership quality) clearly rank below average level.
And this statement is testament of that.
Because this is nothing but a hollow statement intended to bolster your superfluous and weak image as a government official.
Seriously, you did not contribute anything to alleviate the situation, and you even cemented the legacy of incompetence and callousness of your own political party.
Why? Because we are precisely in this mess because of the greed, shortsightedness, ineptitude and apathy of the leaders whom you have allied yourself with.
Our country became stagnant because of the poor leadership of your yellow gang, in which we can clearly see that you have what it takes in carrying their heritage of stupidity.
Ms Robredo, it is this idiocy which has now blinded you to the fact that the current administration has been exerting an enormous amount of determination, resolve and massive political will in order to pursue the genuine desire to give us a more comfortable life.
And what you have outlined as a wish list in your shallow statement is actually work being done NOW and ever since this administration took over.
There is now a short, medium and long term plan to vastly improve and seamlessly integrate the neglected infrastructure and transport system of our country.
All you have to do, without the need to over analyze, is simply browse the net, click on the social media pages of the Department of Public Works and Highways and Department of Transportation – Philippines, and you will see the grand projects in railways, airports, trains, seaports, bridges, and road network.
I don’t know about you Ms Robredo, and how lazy or blind your staff is, just like you, but the information and data is all there, and which majority of us Filipinos are very much aware, and have come to appreciate.
What you have been lazily dreaming is ACTUALLY BEING DONE!
Sa totoo lang Aling Leni, sobrang nakakairita at nakaka bwiset kapag nakakabasa kami ng ganitong napakababaw na press release mula sa iyo. Kasi obvious na namumulitika ka lang at nagpapaka relevant, even if magmukha ka nang tanga.
Isa pa eh halata naman na you are pandering to the interest of big business dito sa issue na ito. Masyado ba maapektuhan ang Cubao ni Mar Roxas pag inalis ang mga terminal sa Edsa?
Babanat ka pa ng “we continue to urge the government to implement holistic solutions” eh pucha naman ano ba ang tingin mo sa Build Build Build, wala lang na parang relasyon nyo lang ni Bolet?
Sana man lang Leni, imbes na pumorma ka ng pang e epal, eh di ba mas maganda kung tumulong ka na lang na magpaliwanag sa taumbayan na ang “nararanasan natin ngayon traffic eh pansamantala lamang at necessary dahil kumikilos na ating gobyerno para manumbalik ang disiplina sa kalsada, at para sa kalaunan ay maging mas convenient na ang mobility. At huwag kayo mag alala dahil doble kayod ang inyong gobyerno ngayon na ma improve ang ating imprastraktura”
Parte ka naman ng gobyerno eh pero bakit nga ba mas pinipili mo na mang epal at manira pa sa ating bayan?
Naiintidihan namin na kelangan magtiis ngayon dahil nga kelangan din natin maghabol.
At alam din namin na determinado si President Rody Duterte na ayusin ang bulok na sistema na syang nag precipitate nitong traffic problem. Lalu na patungkol sa disiplina. Ang gusto mawala ni Pangulo ay ang culture of impunity na syang pangunahing dahilan bakit wala tayong disiplina maski sa kalsada.
The same culture of impunity na mukhang mas gusto mo protektahan at manatili.
Shame on you…
