Metro-Manila Traffic Chaos: Stop Blaming Motorists
Lack of discipline is actually a symptom, not the root cause.
Government has utterly failed to deliver on its responsibilities.

July 9, 2019—In a video making the rounds these days, we see an ambulance, with a patient who cannot breathe, stuck in traffic and unable to move towards the hospital.  Both sides of the street are clogged with traffic going in the opposite direction. The distress in the ambulance is evident.  A guard opens up some space and the ambulance crawls a few feet forward only to be stopped again and again.  This continues for some 8 minutes on the video.  The person taking the video, from the front passenger seat of the ambulance laments the terrible situation.
