JUST in case you missed it, I blogged twice recently on the EPASS (or perhaps the lack of it) electronic toll collection system of the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) and the new Radio Frequency Identification system (RFID) being slowly implemented by tollways owner San Miguel Corporation (SMC), and it seems the absolutely clueless reactions of the main regulator, Toll Regulatory Board (TRB), and specifically its Executive Director former Marinduque congressman and Liberal Party member Edmundo Reyes Jr.
Think chicken running without a head.
Did I mention that TRB is an agency of the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC), with its chairman being the secretary of that department, former congressman and current LP stalwart Emilio Abaya?
Think MRT long passenger queues and derailing trains, laqck of coaches, Land Transportation Office (LTO) lack of drivers license plastic cards and vehicle plates, Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) stinky and accident prone buses, jeepneys and taxi cabs…
You get the picture.
