Terrible Traffic Once Again Plagued SLEX, But for Good Reason

(SPOT.ph) In what is quite possibly the best plot twist of 2020, people online were actually thankful for the traffic that plagued the South Luzon Expressway on Saturday, January 18. Vehicles were all lined up and doing a slow crawl towards the south to deliver goods and aid to the people displaced by Taal Volcano's eruptions. Online, people expressed their thanks to all the people that chipped in—and even traffic along South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) was hailed as a good thing.

Around 150,000 people have been displaced by the ongoing eruptions as of January 19, according to a report by the Philippine Star. While donations have been pouring in—and pictures of evacuees in formal outfits have been circulating onlinethe Citizen's Disaster Response Center group has reminded people to choose clothes that "are appropriate for those who will receive them."


We've got our fingers crossed that the SLEX congestion on Saturday isn't a one-off thing. Here's a look at a few posts that talk about the heavy traffic we could consider as good news:

We salute you!
