Establish jeepney stops in Marikina

Jeepneys are perhaps the most common and convenient transportation system to the masses at the moment. There are plenty of them at the road, and even more commuters utilize them for their everyday travels. As much as people depend on jeepneys, there are still a lot of challenges that both the jeepney drivers and the commuters face. For this petition, we would like to focus on those who load and unload wherever they wish, with disregard to law and safety.
Road accidents and hotheaded drivers are common in Metro Manila. Moreover, Metro Manila has the 3rd worst traffic in southeast Asia (Rappler, 2017), but since the problem of traffic is not as black and white and easy to solve, it may be helpful to address it little by little. By establishing jeepney stops in Marikina, there would ensue a smoother flow of traffic as the drivers would only load and unload commuters at particular areas. This would also enforce discipline among the commuters if the jeepney drivers cooperate.
Soon enough, the practice will become a habit and if the city mayor, LTFRB, and DOT heed and approve our petition, it might be of use to further cities facing the same problem as well.
