I know I've declared before that I won't be posting pictures of vehicles violating the MVVRP, or coding, as it is more commonly known, but I just couldn't help posting these two. These were taken at 5:25pm on Connecticut Ave. in Greenhills.
Having tons of money doesn't mean that one can begin breaking the laws of the land. In fact, I feel that highly educated people such as these (or so I assume) have a deeper responsibility to the country. I just hope that they start to take this responsibility seriously and help lead this country of ours to greatness once again.

About the vehicles violating the UVVRP/coding... How do you know they're not exempted? I am, for example, exempted for a reason that I will not divulge. But I do follow the law. I'm saying this because you might post my car one day and some Nazi might key up my car thinking I violate laws of the land as I please. So please stop posting pics of people who you "think" violate laws.

Based on MMDA regulations, PRIVATELY-OWNED vehicles which are permanently exempted from the UVVRP are required to CONSPICUOUSLY DISPLAY THE APPROPRIATE MARKINGS that warrant their exemption (e.g., official media vehicles, school buses, company shuttle buses, emergency vehicles such as ambulances and firetrucks, etc.). However, there are two types of exceptions. First, there are those whose vehicles are being used in an emergency situation, whether medical, police or any other government-related situation. Second, there are those who can apply for a PERMANENT change in off-road day in the event that they legally own two vehicles that fall under the same off-road day. All other PRIVATELY-OWNED vehicles can only apply for 1 day exemptions. In fact, even vehicles used by doctors are exempted only if they are responding to an emergency.

For more details, please see the full regulation on the MMDA website. A quick link can be found here.

Anyway, as you said, you do follow the law. And as such, I would assume that you would have the appropriate markings on your vehicle. So you really don't have anything to "fear" as we will not post pics of those who obviously did not violate any traffic regulation.

How would you know if I were a doctor responding to an emergency by just taking a picture and not verifying?

i would expect the following indicators: first, use of hazard lights and horns; second, driving would be urgent; third, based on what i've seen, doctors typically place a small signboard saying "doctor on call" on their windshield (although this is the least). these indicators will be taken to mean that the vehicle in question is indeed responding to REAL emergency.

Hello, People. I understand that Pasay and Makati do not allow the 10PM to 3PM coding window. Would anyone out there know if Roxas Blvd and Coastal Road or SLEX (Makati portion) are exempt? Tnx.
