You can now report your emergency to your nearest Shell gas station


Philippine National Police (PNP) partnered with petroleum giant Pilipinas Shell to make their gasoline station double as emergency alert hubs all throughout the country. The partnership aims to improve the government’s anti-criminality campaign, especially their war on drugs. This will also give PNP a wider scope of community to alert them in case of any emergency or accidents so they can respond faster.

Shell gasoline stations will have access to the “Itaga mo sa Bato Mobile App,” an application developed by the PNP, that can connect them to PNP’s command center with just one click. With this partnership, motorists can report any crime or emergency that they have encountered or witnessed in any of the 960 gasoline stations of Pilipinas Shell.

Inter-Agency Council on Traffic (I-ACT) continues to find new ways to ease traffic. For this week, I-ACT will open two government properties to become access roads to motorists.

The first one is Camp Aguinaldo in Quezon City, which motorists coming from EDSA-Santolan and Katipunan can use as diversion road from Monday to Friday, 6:00 AM to 10:00 PM. Motorists only need to secure an access sticker so they can enter the property. Security access stickers can be claimed in the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) headquarters in Makati City by submitting the Certificate of Registration (CR) and Official Receipt (OR) of the vehicle and a picture of the registered owner of the vehicle, and then paying a fee for the sticker. The property will be open for public access until January 15, 2017.

The other property is the Office of Transportation Security (OTS) on Andrews Avenue and Tramo in Pasay. MMDA plans to remove a wall in the area to serve as access road to motorists going to Roxas Boulevard. This will also lessen the buildup of traffic in EDSA, especially the vehicles turning to Domestic Road going to Roxas Boulevard.

I-Act also plans to open five more military camps and another access road in Makati in the coming weeks to continue to improve the traffic in the metro especially with the rush of the upcoming holiday season.




No more Divisoria night market

Manila City Mayor Joseph Estrada continues his plans of decongesting Manila city of traffic by removing the yearly night market in Divisoria this coming holiday season. Although the night market that started way back 2013 originally aimed to help vendors who were affected by the clearing operations during daytime, the city government now realizes that it does more harm than good to the city’s traffic situation.

With the traffic expected to worsen this upcoming Christmas, Estrada hopes to decongest the streets affected by the yearly event specifically the streets of Recto Avenue from Abad Santos to Juan Luna.

Although a lot of vendors will be affected by the move, Estrada deemed it necessary to stop the traditional night market not just to improve the flow of traffic in the affected streets but also to stop any illegal vendor who might take advantage of the season.
