A traffic jam lasting four hours at the C5 exit of the SLEx was caused by 14 drivers who passed on the E-pass lane without an E-pass, prompting tollgate personnel to confiscate their licenses.

C'mon, one or two or maybe even five of these may actually be unaware of the E-pass lane, but I'm pretty sure the rest were. They were just trying to get ahead of the line (which is typical Filipino mentality) and got caught doing it.
