MANILA, Philippines - A total of 891 motorists have been issued traffic violation tickets since the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) and Highway Patrol Group (HPG) started clearing “mabuhay lanes” across Metro Manila early this month.

The MMDA said 404 vehicles that were illegally parked along mabuhay lanes were towed.

Of the towed vehicles, 135 were sedans and 73 were trucks. The rest of the illegally parked vehicles include tricycles, taxis, utility vans, multicabs, jeeps and a bus.

The MMDA said the illegally parked vehicles were brought to the MMDA impounding station at the Ultra Complex in Pasig City.

The 17 mabuhay lanes were designated as alternative routes by the MMDA for motorists who want to avoid traffic jams along EDSA.

Covered by the mabuhay lanes are Mandaluyong, San Juan, Makati, Manila and Quezon City. Also included in the list of mabuhay lanes are secondary roads that lead to shopping destinations in Baclaran, Parañaque; Greenhills in San Juan, and Divisoria and Carriedo in Manila.

Earlier, MMDA Chairman Emerson Carlos urged local government units to identify more alternative routes for the use of motorists during the Christmas season.
