The use of road space is undemocratic

Alabado: Street revolution | Sun.Star: "Local executives and traffic managers have always turned a blind eye on the issue of modern modes and systems of public transportation. They have always been very lenient on the private vehicles but very strict on public transportation. Case in point – look at the on-street parking that our local government allows on many streets. The designated loading and unloading bays of the jeepneys are but a few and limited but on-street parking is allowed the whole day round. A jeepney transports at least 10 people and a car normally transports only two so why should private vehicle be it cars or motorcycles be allowed to occupy one or two lane exclusively thus further restricting the flow of traffic in the downtown area?"
