Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) head of traffic Col. Bong Nebrija has commented over the Filipinos who complained about the strict implementation of yellow bus lane policy along EDSA.
KAMI learned that many netizens shared their frustration on social media over the traffic caused by the yellow bus lane policy.
“Bes, anong oras na kaya ako makakauwi? Komyuter lang kasi ako eh. Probinsyano lang kasi ako eh. I don't deserve equal treatment. Yellow Lane Policy pa more,” a netizen wrote.
Here are some of their comments on Facebook:
“Oras na para bawasan ang mga bus sa EDSA.”
“Sino nga ba ang dapat na priority sa kalsada?”
“Sa pagkakaalam ko mas maraming commuters smantalang ang luwag ng daanan ng mga private vehicles na iisa ang sakay.. kawawang ordinaryong juan sya ang laging npagiiwanan”

In a report by GMA News Online (author Margaret Claire Layug), Nebrija answered the frustrations of Filipinos stuck in traffic brought by the new policy.
"May maririnig ka nanamang inutil kayo, bobo kayo. Really? We're just doing our job... Kami naman po sa enforcers, kailangan namin pong gawin ang dapat naming gawin," Nebrija said.
“Ang sa amin po, magpasyensyahan tayo... Ginagawa po namin lahat eh. Nakikita po namin ang enforcers namin, umulan umaraw, nandyan kami para panatilihin ang kaayusan," he added.
A proposed measure to ban provincial buses from EDSA has been temporarily suspended after a Quezon City court issued a writ of preliminary injunction to oppose the move.
