MANILA, Philippines - The motorists and commuters were welcomed by a stressful traffic situation on Monday morning.

Because of the heavy traffic caused by road closures, rerouting schemes and lack of public utility vehicles, most Filipino commuters opted to go on foot to reach their destinations.

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) closed various thoroughfares including both sides of  Roxas Boulevard to ensure the safety and convenience of world leaders attending the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit.
