The reason why we’re in dire straits is because we are undisciplined and stubborn. We park our cars improperly. We throw our garbage out of the car. The weird thing is that fog lights are used like regular car headlights. We blow our horns unnecessarily. And we never yield in intersections. As pedestrians, we are a lousy bunch. We cross the streets like we own them. We beat the red light at any chance we can! We throw our cigarette butts on the streets and spit anywhere. Marcos, for all his faults, was right in saying: Sa ikauunlad ng bayan, disiplina ang kailangan. Now if only our traffic officers perform their designated tasks, I don’t think we’ll be as undisciplined as now. There are rules and laws that need to be implemented. Unfortunately, either the implementers need to be disciplined too or they’re nowhere to be found. Enough said.
