Drivers, Be aware – Be Reminded – Beware of YELLOW BOX at Intersections!
I saw in the newspaper (Manila Bulletin) today (September 19, 2011) a reminder from Makati City Government on the Yellow Box at every traffic intersection which SHOULD ALWAYS BE CLEAR OF VEHICLES.
The Revised Makati City Traffic Code sets a time limit of 15 seconds for a driver to move his or her vehicle out of a Yellow Box, reckoned from the time the traffic light turns red. Violators will be fined P1,000 for the first offense; P2,500 for the second offense; and P5,000 for the third offense.
Drivers, Be aware – Be Reminded – Beware!
When you are in Makati or elsewhere for that matter, always remember to stay out of the Yellow Box.
