    I have an E-bike/scooter from Racal. No registration at LTO required but did have to pay 40 pesos at city hall to have a smart number plate!

    Dear Governor, Mayor, LTO Chief, given it is election time, I will offer my suggestions for fixing the traffic congestion in the town and highway. You can go ahead and take credit for the solutions I offer. I imagine a few of my frustrated colleagues can add a few as well.
    1. Establish fixed locations where Ceres buses, Jeepneys, Pedicabs, and idiots are allowed to stop and ENFORCE it.
    2. Establish alternate days where pedicabs are allowed to operate in the city and ENFORCE it.
    3. Replace the lazy useless traffic officers hiding in the shade with cute young chicks, train them and issue smart properly phones with music and ear phones so they can dance while working.
    4. Take all the bikes, trikes, cars without working lights, mirrors, breaks, regulation mufflers and current registration off the road.
    5. Give top priority and funding (without the money disappearing) to complete the Bacong-Sibulan bypass road.
    6. Until the road complete, Keep the sugar cane trucks off the boulevard by routing them through Valencia - I'm sure the foreigners living there would take one for the team.
    7. Keep the container haulers off the boulevard - find a way, that one's on you.
    8. Turn Santa Catalina street into a Ceres bus, pedicab route and off the boulevard.
    9. Run drug tests on all Van and Easyride drivers.
    10. Others may have suggestions to guide you.

    Another suggestion don't go to town,send the wife as they seem to love the place :smile: if the wife insists I go I need atleast a weeks notice before hand and this usually solves any issues of me going anywhere near that hole!
    I'm not keen on your no 6 either so best delete that one :smile:

    I live after any reroute turns that would need to be made and I'm far enough away from the main roads to not hear them. Wouldn't bother me one bit. :wink:

    Thanks for the heads up on this one. I didn't notice this. I might have to dig out my traffic officer outfit.

    The first time i came to the Philippines was 8 years ago, one thing i was surprised at was that for a poverty stricken country there was a high proportion of fat people.
    Now i am here full time i can see one of the reasons for this is that the average Filipino/a will not walk one step farther than possible.
    This can be seen by the way they park their motorbikes at the entrance, doorway, driveway of where they are going instead of parking them out of the way of everybody else.
    This is also the cause of the constant traffic jam at the main entrance to Robinsons, cars stop at the entrance to pick up/drop off fat lazy people who cannot walk to/from the parking slot, also there are the cars that sit and wait beside the entrance hoping that a parking slot will become available as they do not want to walk too far.
    I wish the security guards would move them on but that does not seem to be in their work-scope.
