Paano yung nagtiis sa traffic? Orbos: Maria Isabel Lopez to be sanctioned for ASEAN lane mischief
Transportation Undersecretary and Metro Manila Development Authority General Manager Tim Orbos vowed to apply the full force of the law on actress Maria Isabel Lopez for her unauthorized use of EDSA lanes reserved for delagates of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) summit.
“We cannot let this pass. What about the other people who followed the law?” Orbos asked.
He disclosed that Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade and MMDA chairman Danilo Lim have ordered him to exhaust all legal avenues to ensure that Lopez’s infraction would not go unpunished.
“What you do when a guest comes to your house? You want to show your best, you make sacrifices,” Orbos said.
The actress, a former beauty queen, posted on Saturday a video and photos on her Instagram and Facebook accounts, bragging how she removed some of the road cones and entered the lanes designated for ASEAN delegates.
Her post, which became viral on social media, read: “Driving with hazards ‘on’ at the #aseanlane. I removed the divider cones!! Then all the other motorists behind me followed! MMDA thinks I’m an official ASEAN delegate! If you can’t beat ’em, join them! #nosticker #leadership.”
