There is no fixing the Philippines' jeepney cancer. Only full eradication will work.


The point is missed by a mile when Filipinos propose any solution that involves tinkering on the fringes of the Philippines' jeepneys cancer. Unfortunately the sort of thinking being applied to the matter is, quite simply, exceedingly small.


Jeepneys are an immense socio-economic problem that has imprisoned Filipinos for decades and continue to thwart the Philippines' march to progress.

People who defend, apologise for, and coddle these monsters are part of the problem.
