Overspeeding ka brod!” Nebrija wrote.

Here is the full post:
“The top speed of the day? 70 KPH. That’s 20 KPH over the limit
The busway is one of the best things that ever happened to EDSA. It brought order to the chaos and finally recognized the need to prioritize commuters and mass public transport.
A lot of people would just turn a blind eye to this, because “it’s not my job” or “it’s not my problem”.
That’s why you need proactive people on the ground. Those who see a problem and take the initiative to try fix it before it grows out of control.
Hopefully the buses caught speeding will heed the warnings given today, to avoid serious accidents.”
