Kudos to MMDA's Pink Lines

This time, the chair of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) is bent on painting all the sidewalks of major and secondary roads around the metropolis with two-inch pink lines.

His objective: stopping drivers from parking their cars on the sidewalks.

Aptly dubbed the "Pink Line Project," the undertaking would be part of MMDA's effort to strictly enforce illegal parking laws, Fernando said.

"Let us now return the sidewalks to the people who face the risk of being sideswiped by running vehicles because they cannot walk freely on the sidewalks," he said in a statement. "This is the best way to instill discipline in some uncaring people who disregard the law and wantonly inconveniencing their fellowmen."


I hope this policy will be strictly implemented. Hopefully during my next visit in Manila, I can already see changes in the streets of the Metro. :)
