Solenn Heussaff weighs in on driver-only car ban in EDSA

Model-actress Solenn Heussaff took to Twitter to vent her frustration regarding the proposed ban on private cars with only one person riding it during rush hours along EDSA.

The Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) previously said that they are planning to implement a one week trial for the proposed ban to know its effectivity.

The said ban aims to ease the heavy traffic on the said road especially during rush hour. However, many netizens do not agree with the proposed ban. One of them is Heussaff who said that the driver-only car ban is a dangerous plan.

“The one person car rule is so dangerous: either the person driver will get mugged or person in car can kidnap or abuse person to ride. Seriously! What is happening here!” the French-Filipino actress wrote on Twitter.

Shortly after, Heussaff suggested some alternative solutions on how to ease traffic in lieu of the said ban.

“Things they could do: [Proper] transport; add trains for MRT; educate bus/jeepney drivers; [and] educate [people] on trash so nothing [gets] clogged etc!” she tweeted.

Aside from the driver-only car ban, Heussaff also got disappointed with the flooding that happened along Roxas Boulevard which brought piles of garbage from Manila Bay to the highway.

On her Instagram Stories last August 11, the actress shared a photo of the said flood with the caption: ““Up! Ito ba yung gusto niyo para sa bansa natin? Para sa mga anak niyo?”

She even pointed out that cleaning up the ‘sea of trash’ from Manila Bay is more important than the single-rider ar rule.

The actress also enumerated some ways on how to solve the problem.
