“‘Yung sa speed limit yung 60 kilometers per hour, ‘pag madaling araw nagkakaroon ng aksidente,” Garcia said.
“Nagkatawanan na naman, nakakatakbo ba tayo ng 60 [kph]? Sa Commonwealth, medyo maluwag diyan, ang Roxas Boulevard ‘pag tanghali lang makakatakbo ka ng 60 kph,” he added.
However, not all netizens were pleased with the MMDA’s proposed measure. Here are some of their comments based on the Facebook page of the Inquirer:
“I find it funny that MMDA thinks we can go faster than 60kph in Manila traffic”
“basta may ma-implement lang, de bale impossible...”
“You can't even make 20kph in the metro most of the time.”
“Last time i hit 60kmph was holy week when everybody was out of town including the MMDA!!! Lol”
“In the first place we can’t even go beyond 40km/h because of the darn traffic, you gotta be dreaming of imposing a speed limit!”
“Bihira nman maka 60 kph, palagi bumper to bumper so anong problema. Unahin yung mga illegal terminals and illegal parking.”
“Haha i find this funny. Mkakatakbo k p b ng more than 60kph s metro manila s lagay ng traffic?”
“jusko! para namng nakakatakbo pa ng ganun kabilas ang mga sasakyan sa EDSA!”
“Hindi ka nga makatakbo ng 50kph sa metro manila sa sobrang traffic, impose pa ng 60kph?”
