Mayor Tomas “Tommy” Osmeña took drastic measures just to ease the worsening road congestion in Cebu City, so he went with a strict implementation of a no-counterflow rule along major roads and streets.

While the regulation is supposed to benefit all, the politiko still fetched a number of haters and bashers for the new ordinance, especially the blanket 30-day impounding of vehicles for violators.

Some say it’s too much.


Another went as far as calling Osmeña “disgusting” given the view that the rule was anti-poor.


Osmeña, however, is standing by the new traffic 101. Don’t want to be impounded? Don’t violate the rule, the mayor said.
