MANILA, Philippines – The move of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) to implement the driver-only car ban along EDSA has triggered swift backlash from motorists and commuters alike.

The dry run of the ban began Wednesday, August 15, while full implementation is being eyed starting August 23.

But even the Senate unanimously approved a resolution urging the MMDA to suspend the driver-only car ban. In the resolution, senators said the MMDA must first conduct public consultations and rethink the potential effects of the ban.
