It feels strange talking about the number-coding scheme again, with the measure having been suspended for the better part of 2021 and all. But, well, here we are.
Good news for those of you who plan to be out and about during the end the year, though. The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has announced that the number-coding scheme will be suspended on December 24, 30, and 31. Look:
That’s Christmas Eve, Rizal Day, and New Year’s Eve. Christmas Day and New Year’s Day aren’t affected because, well, those are Saturdays.
“Ibig sabihin, ang mga sasakyang may plakang nagtatapos sa 7 at 8 na sakop ng coding tuwing Huwebes (Rizal Day); at 9 at 0 na sakop ng coding tuwing Biyernes ay maaaring bumiyahe sa mga lansangan ng Metro Manila buong araw,” the MMDA’s Facebook post reads.
All that said, it probably isn’t advisable to go party-hopping this year. We’re still in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the Omicron variant has landed in the Philippines. Let’s keep this in mind.
Anyway, enjoy the coding break. Happy holidays, guys!
