No to wang wang

Shalani Soledad on the origins of President Noynoy’s ‘no wang wang policy,’ in this Manila Bulletin interview before the May 10 2010 elections:

” I have to tell you this. Si Noy, after Senate hours, ayaw na niyang ginagamit ‘yung plaka nung senator. Pinapatanggal na niya ‘yun. Kahit past 12 na or one, ayaw niya ‘yung nagse-swerve. Dun ka lang sa proper lane mo. At kahit na one o’ clock in the morning na ‘yan, kapag naka-stop ‘yan, kahit wala kang ibang kasabay, you should follow traffic rules and regulations.”

No wonder, a policy against the use of blinkers and wang wang was one of P-noy’s first acts as the President. While I agree that his failure to avail of his privilege to use a wang wang can be a serious security issue, It should be a problem to be solved by his security men. Perhaps they can clear the road ahead of his arrival? What I am saying is that the President’s move is enjoying too much popularity for him to stop. And stopping his non-use of wang wang at this point in time will be a case of too much, too soon. President Noynoy should continue suffering in Manila’s traffic, if only to shame road abusers and demonstrate that there is equal opportunity for all in our streets, an opportunity that has long been abused by those in power.

Besides, with the prevalence of wang wangs pre-Noynoy, we don’t know anymore what constitutes genuine emergency and what is not. When am driving and I hear the blinkers, I stall in giving way because I don’t know whether it’s the real Joe or just somebody who happened to have extra cash to buy sirens in Raon.

The popularity of the Facebook group Isumbong Mo Ang Wang Wang Dito (Report the Wang Wang Here) shows that Noynoy has found his cheerleaders and that the end is near for abusers as they can now be easily exposed in public.

We have been informed that the public can readily report vehicles or drivers using sirens
by texting to 2920, calling the anti wang wang hotline 726-1261 and texting LTO Chairperson Alberto Suansing at 0918-9348707. However, we should be open to the idea that government agencies can be ineffective or non-responsive. That is why it’s better to use groups like those in Facebook where one can be enlightened about the whole situation and have fun at the same time. Visit the page here.

    ALAM NG BUONG COTABATO CITY NA HINDI GUMAGAMIT NG WANG WANG ANG MGA GUIANI AT LALONG HINDI NAG KA COUNTER FLOW SA PAG PUNTA NILA SA PEOPLE’S PALACE.

    MASAKIT BA SA KALOOBAN NINYO NA ANG COTABATO CITY, MULA SA PAGIGING THIRD CLASS SA PAMUMUNO NG MAHAL NINYO NA SI SEMA AY NAGING FIRST CLASSS CITY NA NGAYON?

    MASAKIT BA SA KALOOBAN NINYO NA AWARDEE ANG COTABATO CITY IN TWO STRAIGHT YEARS NG SEAL OF GOOD HOUSEKEEPING?
