When I saw this amusing photo on the front page of The Manila Times circa 1965, I was reminded of Señor Enrique’s blog entry titled “The Jolly Jaywalkers of Manila.” They're really a bunch of jolly jaywalkers (lol)!!!
Jaywalking has been always been a problem in urban cities like Manila. You may call it a way and 'walk' of life of most Filipinos who defied simple sign as "No Pedestrian Crossing Allowed" and risking their limbs, arms and possibly their life.
In 1965, then Manila Mayor Antonio Villegas waged a campaign against jaywalkers to restore order in main city streets.
