President Aquino goes anti Wang wang big time..

The term Wang wang if your not familiar is the noise made from the sirens from things like Police vehicles. Since Aquino has taken power he has begun a crackdown on its illegal use. If you live in the Philippines you will notice the arogant abuses sticking on the sirens and lights pushing their way up the road as if official vehicles but in reality its normally just abuse of power or the fact they are wealthy and assume they can get away with it. I think part of the problem for them now is President Aquino has experienced being pushed to one side himself by these types of people which is why the national crackdown has begun. It will no doubt annoy a lot of people who believe they are above the law but I hope its a sign of things to change and improve the Philippines into a more democratic and fair country. Instead of having money means the law pretty much is useless to prosecute which is part of the plague of corruption. Off to a head start in a way that shows NoyNoy puts the people first lets hope this is a momentum here to stay.

    I think Rene is right in saying wait and see.. as I think its too early to see where this goes as the presidents reach only goes so far. A lot of these officials are in their own areas and no doubt have a lot more influence locally. I think this is why something like the UK system would work better where the roads etc. are “central” govt and then your local town,city issues are handled by local officials. Would actually stop a lot of these things happening as they dont answer the question at their own courts but that in Manila under Presidential control.

    It's about time the privileged ones get to experience the hardships of a normal citizen. Maybe with that experience they can formulate a permanent fix to the traffic problem.

    Let's be patient. As far we know, several arrests on wangwang violators were being made by the law-enforcers and these were reported by the media yesterday. Please, be factual.

    The sad thing is those apprehended are govt. officials and even elected officials who dared to defy the mandate of the new President a day after his inauguration.

    In Manila the police seem to have took this a different way. They are going after the jeepney's etc that use them.
    I think you will find it is not a new law, it has been in for a good few years but like most laws in the Philippines it has not been enforced.

    Abusive, arrogant and corrupt public officials. Now, they are telling us that there is going to be a change. We'll help and hope for success.
