(SPOT.ph) In case you missed it, the Metro Manila Development Authority announced on August 7 that a proposal to ban single-occupant vehicles from EDSA was approved by the Metro Manila Council. A report by Top Gear published later the same day stated that the ban on cars with single occupants applies only to the thoroughfare's high-occupancy vehicle or HOV lane, but as of writing it seems to be unclear whether the proposal would affect all lanes. Further details regarding the ban will be revealed in a press conference on Friday, August 10.

As expected, plenty of Metro Manila drivers didn't take well to the news. Besides pointing out the possible effects, including congestion in alternate roads and public transportation systems, it seems that this proposal struck a nerve with those who are, well, quite literally single. Here are 10 online reactions to the EDSA ban that stood out, from enraged rants to hugot statements.


Some found the ban laughable.

She has a point.

But will you really miss sitting in traffic for an eternity?

Smooth moves.

Look on the bright side!

That doesn't seem fair.

If only they could actually enforce traffic rules...
