Our buses speak of our culture

Paaralang Bayan sa Himpapawid with Ms Melly C Tenorio
738 DZRB AM  8 to 9 evening class Monday to Friday

Here are photos sent to us by our audience on Paaralang Bayan sa Himpapawid radio program which I would like to share with our Weblog audience. 

Clean and simple look.  It's a bus typical in many countries. The rear view is unobstructed for safety and convenience, for the bus driver, the vehicles behind, pedestrians, police, and the public. Less accident, less holdup, less traffic violations.

Camouflaged aging bus. Dangerous.  Potential hold uppers are hidden from view. Road accidents are more likely to happen, anti-culture, blatant violation of laws and regulations. Scotfree!   

There are hundreds of buses in Metro Manila that are mobile billboards. Distracting and distasteful. Support the movement to ban these buses. Support MMDA, kudos to City of Manila for initiating the movement. 
Whose fault?  Whose responsibility? All of us actually because we believe in peace and order - and in decency and dignity.
