SOME 10 private vehicles and a passenger utility bus (PUB) were apprehended on Monday as the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) imposed strict enforcement of the yellow lane scheme from Shaw Blvd to Guadalupe (south bound) on EDSA to help address traffic congestion. Chief Supt. Arnold Gunnacao, Highway Patrol Group (HPG) director said it made travel time of PUBs became faster by 30 minutes. But traffic outside the yellow lane remained heavy from Shaw to Guadalupe going to Ayala during rush hour on Monday after limiting the lane to just one for private and other vehicles. More traffic personnel were also deployed to ensure that private vehicles will not use the yellow lane.
