Maria Isabel Lopez was summoned at the Land Transportation Office today, Thursday, for using the ASEAN lane on EDSA and bragging about it on social media.
KAMI learned about Maria’s explanation for what she did from ABS-CBN News and GMA News.
According to the report, Maria wanted LTO to consider her being a senior citizen and her clean record in deliberating whether to suspend or cancel her driving license.
She added that she actually asked an MMDA officer to use the ASEAN lane.
"Sinabi ko naman sa kanila na ang intention ko is not to breach the security, because I was talking to an MMDA official. If there was an intention, I would not have talked to him.
“Plus, siyempre, once again I’m apologizing to the people I have inconvenienced, 'yung public, those people who missed their flights. It was a lapse of judgment on my part,” Maria said.
Netizens continued to bash Maria Isabel for what she did despite her explanation.
“Walang intensyon? Eh sabi niya tinanggal niya ung traffic cones. Petmalu ka talaga.”
“Bigyan na ng ngipin ang batas...tanggalan ng lisensya para di pamarisan”
“Di pwedeng makalusot yan kasi gagawin nya yan uli pag di tinuruan ng leksyon at marami ding gagaya sa knya kya di umuunlad ang Pinas dahil sa mga taong kagaya nyang Maria na yan”
KAMI is hoping that all of us would observe the traffic laws in our country.
