Seems like they're starting to do something about the flooding here. Finally.

The vehicles making a u-turn here to get to Temple Drive eats up at least two lanes. Maybe they should rethink their no crossing rule for the intersection here.

Caught this Skyway Patrol bike cop overtaking on the shoulder on SLEX approaching the C5 off-ramp at around 7:54pm.
Hay naku!

One of the darkest plate covers I've seen. Couldn't even make the plate number come out via Photoshop.
Anyway, this was taken in Ayala Alabang at around 9:48am.

The u-turn that this Hi-Ace made on the intersection of Commerce and Madrigal Avenues is pretty dangerous.
Traffic was going from left to right at the intersection so basically, he was going against them when he made the turn. Delikado.

The administrator heading this Metro Gwapo project should really be fired. Imagine, scheduling the installation of signs at 10:30am on a Tuesday! Ang trapik tuloy!
Shouldn't they be doing this in the middle of the night to reduce the inconvenience to motorists and commuters?

This bus had parking lights, but no brake lights.
The LTO should really start implementing a thorough inspection of vehicles during registration. In all my years of registering vehicles, I have yet to see them check anything outside of the engine and chassis numbers, and for a brief period some years ago, the EWD. Brake lights, parking lights, head lights, rearview and sideview mirrors are just a few items that they need to ensure that each vehicle has in good working condition for it to be considered road worthy.

Another contribution from Weremanok!

This taxi was seen on Kalayaan in Paranaque, near NAIA headed towards Baclaran, at around 11:30am.

Here's another one. This Lancer, with plate number UHY 480, was seen on Commerce Ave. in Alabang at around 2:20pm.

Just look at these two billboards on SLEX.
Isn't there an agency that's supposed to oversee the construction of these things? These are pretty dangerous considering the number of typhoons that we get every year.

Hay naku! When will these guys ever learn?!?
Anyway, these guys were seen northbound on EDSA at around 10:42am.

This vulcanizing shop at Santolan has been conducting their repairs on the road for the longest time. No parking area pa naman 'eto.

Saw this sign on that police outpost on the EDSA-Ayala intersection.
What the heck is a Closed Door Policy? Does this mean that citizens can't go in? Kinda goes against transparency and projecting an image of being easy to approach.

UPDATE 05/15/06: An anonymous poster has graciously pointed out that the Closed Door Policy refers to buses. I suppose this prevents them from loading and unloading near the corner, where they can block those turning right to McKinley. Thanks!

Thanks to Weremanok for contributing these pics.

These vehicles were seen on Julia Vargas at around 8:15am.

Wala na talaga ata'ng pagasa na maayos 'tong dalawa'ng nakakaharang na 'to sa C5.

Grabe sa usok yung binubuga nito'ng trak na 'to!

Saw this Urvan on EDSA at around 7:28pm. Instead of using a tinted plate cover, he put green cellophane inside his clear plate cover so that it can be color coordinated with his van. Although you can't see it on the pic, I think the plate number was XKT 188.
Magaling s'ya!

Just look at these two enforcers.
Tama na tsimisan at nakakaharang kayo ng mga sasakyan!

Saw this Adventure at the EDSA-Santolan intersection trying to turn left at around 10:03am this morning.
He eventually noticed that no one was turning left and crossed the intersection. But not after blocking the cars behind him.

Anyway, the sign was right in front of him, hindi ba n'ya nakita? Baka puro rock salt ang gamit ng nanay n'ya nung bata pa s'ya?

I guess it's a universal rule that jeeps load and unload passengers right beside the No Loading and Unloading signs.
This was taken on Civic Drive, in front of the Asian Hospital and Medical Center at Filinvest Corporate City.

This is good! Maybe this will lessen accidents resulting from sleepy drivers.
Kudos to the guy who came up with this idea!

These guys were running around 25kph on the middle lane of SLEX.
I know we should respect the dearly departed, but inconveniencing others is going too far.

Also, those stupid police escorts started sounding their sirens when traffic started to pile up right after the C5 bridge. Ano akala nila? Tatabi dapat lahat ng tao para sa kanila?

Anyway, here's a picture one of those funeral rent-a-cops with his unregistered motorcycle.

Saw this Suzuki Swift going northbound on EDSA at around 5:48pm.
Well, at least his front plate wasn't covered.

Sabi na no parking! Can't you guys read?!?
Anyway, this was taken on Esperanza St., between Greenbelt 3 and New World Hotel.

I know cleanliness is supposed to be next to Godliness, but this Sentra is taking it to the limit.
Wala ka nang makita d'un sa dalawang plaka n'ya.

If this Lancer, seen northbound on SLEX around 9:42pm, is new, then where's the conduction sticker?

Hindi ba talaga bawal ang monitor sa dashboard ng kotse?
That's a big distraction for the driver of the vehicle.

Why can't they fix the drainage on the Merville exit of the SLEX?
This causes drivers to slow down, swerve to the lane with the least water, and surprises drivers with the spray. Delikado! Sayang din yung tubig. Pati na din yung ginagamit pang linis ng kotse.

Until now, the MMDA still does not or cannot do anything about the buses that illegally load and unload passengers in the southbound lane of EDSA in front of Mantrade.
Meron naman palaging MMDA enforcers dito?

Why doesn't Ford retool the E150 so that our plate numbers fit properly?
Toyota did it with the Corolla in the 90's, so why can't they?

Government issued Honda Civic with plate no. SGY 351, seen on May 1, 2005, 11:33am at Shaw Blvd., Mandaluyong City, turning left going to the 3+1 day sale at SM Megamall.
Di ba bawal gamitin ang government vehicle for personal use at walang pasok sa government office?

Saw this Honda City going southbound on SLEX earlier this afternoon. Hayop talaga magmaneho!
Trying to cut in the middle of two cars, swerving from one lane to the other, trying to overtake on that really slim service road, this guy did it all! If he had an emergency, then all he had to do was turn on his hazard lights. At least, people would then be forewarned.

This one was traveling around 45kph on C5.
