Expect humongous traffic and ultimate chaos this Friday, October 31, 2014 and the succeeding day, November 1, 2014.
Government has just announced that October 31 is a regular day, meaning not a holiday. What this means is a traffic and heavily congested Metro roads and highways come Friday because people are going to rush to their provincial destinations this weekend.
I don't know who advises the president but previous declarations of October 31 as a non-working holiday has its reasons and one of them to declog and ensure smoother traffic flow to and fro Metro Manila during these times. Authorities know how heavy traffic becomes the minute you don't allow some provincial bus passengers to ride their provincial bus ride earlier than usual.
I really dont know what's going on the minds of our executives particularly those residing in that charmed old palace by the river.
