MMDA implements Pink Line Project
The MMDA has started towing vehicles and clearing obstacles violating their "pink lines" in their latest effort to clear the sidewalks. The drivers who were caught parking illegally on the sidewalks complained that they were not adequately informed by the MMDA about the policy.

Now, if they were parallel parked on the sidewalk, then obviously that's illegal parking. But if they were in they were parked in a driveway that extended to the sidewalk, then that's kinda iffy. I mean, it would just be proper for the MMDA to give people time to "fix" their garages/driveways, since it was lack of proper enforcement of this particular law that led to this situation in the first place.

Anyway, here's a video from GMANews.TV that explains the pink line policy:

New LTO chief opens doors to public
Alberto Suansing, the new head of the LTO, has announced that the public is welcome to go to him directly for any LTO-related complaints.

Hopefully, he'll provide the public with an email address or an online forum that the public can use.
