10 Furious Reactions to the New EDSA Traffic Scheme

On a scale of 1 to "carmageddon," how effective was it?


(SPOT.ph) The new traffic scheme along Metro Manila's major thoroughfare, EDSA, was put to the test this morning, September 5, which didn't start the week right for some motorists and commuters.


The change was implemented by the Inter-Agency Council for Traffic at 5 a.m. to "address the traffic problem of EDSA." The advisory issued on Sunday, September 4, indicated the following changes:


  • Closure of U-Turn Slots Southbound near Trinoma after West Avenue to SM City Northbound;
  • Closure/Removal of counterflow at Rockwell Flyover from Rockwell to EDSA; and
  • North Road, EDSA - One way only from EDSA


Monday morning proved to be chaotic for some commuters, who only had more traffic problems to share over Twitter:


New scheme, old problem



Sometimes, there aren't enough expletives, really.



RIP Lilia Cuntapay



Happy birthday...not.



Not fun at all



Or maybe a concert?



So much feels.



Blue pill or red pill?



Commuter ninja level: +9999



And all its permutations.

Tell us your #feels!
