    masyadong makitid for my taste, even if i was driving an innova only.

    the authority figure might insist otherwise,
    but then,... why does it happen oh-so-regularly?

    driver was too fast? distracted? I bet there is a dashcam, but it was taken before police arrived.

    Diba meron CCTV buong Edsa. Pinagmamalaki nila yan nun start ng anti distracting law. Ilabas nila para makita kung ano talaga nangyari.

    actually malapad naman yung lane.. kumain pa nga ng space yung barrier sa adjacent lane eh.. kaya lang pag ganyan medyo annoying yung barrier and you need to keep a steady hand..

    dapat pag nasa loob ng barrier nasa 40kph lang takbo mo.. kaso madami sa mga pinoy na galing galingan eh nag 100 kph sa loob ng barrier..

    in that case, they should install effective signage near the entrance,
    1. "for xxx or less meters wide vehicles only", and
    2. 40 kph maximum speed.

    also, in my opinion,
    "our edsa lane divider lines make for lanes narrower than industry standard."

    I don't think the driver will get the footage hehehe. he knows he is at fault. I wonder if that footage is publicly available though.

    The MMDA should prosecute him for reckless driving, government property damage and traffic delay lol

    aren't ambulance drivers supposed to be "creme of the crop" "top of the line" kind-a drivers? i mean they're supposed to be "the best" drivers in the basket so to speak, but hey, look even to the best of the best these things happen. Isn't it about time that they should consider taking these barriers somewhere else? on the other side perhaps? I've driven along edsa since day one they put these barriers and I too get distracted not from anything else but from these barrier themselves! all people have different perspective when driving but when you suddenly see things (barriers at that) you will definitely feel nausated or just plain distracted that's why i always avoid that side of the road if i could

    the traffic authority insists it's not the barriers' fault.
    he blames the drivers.
    doesn't he understand, that if it happens with alarming regularity,
    ...he should be alarmed?

    it's like the driver who has so many dents and dings in his car,
    and insists for every single dent, that it's always the other drivers' fault.

    i mean,
    the barriers' presence, has made it dangerous to traverse that roadway...
    it challenges the drivers' skill and judgement!
    who in his right mind, would design a main roadway to be an obstacle course!

    just like with the "barrier" again barrier with the backride of a motorbike angkas, they keep insisting that its for everybody's safety and now what? you can do away with the barrier if "your guess is as good as mine" you are living together in the same house, wtf?!!!
