Everyone Suffers in Manila Traffic

Categories: East Asia, Philippines, Economics & Business, Governance, Travel

Filipino journalist Iris Cecilia Gonzales writes about how people suffer [1] from Manila's notorious street traffic:

When one is stuck in traffic in Manila's streets, there's no escape. Everyone suffers — whether you're driving a sleek Rolls Royce or a moving piece of junk; whether it's with a red plate or a diplomatic one; whether the car is registered or not at all. There is nowhere to go and nothing to do but to crawl and wait and wait longer.
