Makati Number Coding Holy Week Suspended on April 14, 15, 16, 17, 18?
If driving to Makati, like Tutubi, is part of your daily grind, you know how hard it is to commute to Makati on your coding days thus you wake up early just to get to the office before 7am and not get issued a number coding ticket violation by the MAPSA/MAPA yellow boys of Makati.
UPDATED April 2014
This coming Holy Week, particularly April 14 to April 16, 2014 (Holy Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) if your coding day falls on any of this and you expect number coding suspension in Makati, you're in for the usual bad news that the "republic of Makati" suspended number coding only on there days
April 14, 2014 Holy Monday 7am-7pm
April 15, 2014 Holy Tuesday 7am-7pm
April 16, 2014 Holy Wednesday 7am-7pm
April 17, 2014 Holy Thursday Suspended, no number coding
April 18, 2014 Good Friday Suspended, no number coding
Warning: if you're using a new car with no car license plates, MAPA will use the last digit on your LTO conduction sticker. this rule applies only in Makati :)
You can only pass by the Makati segments of C5, EDSA and Osmena Highway without worrying about a traffic violation ticket for number coding violation during Holy Week, something you can't do during ordinary days outside the number coding window of MMDA.
people working during Holy week in Makati will benefit, MMDA Number Coding UVVRP si already suspended from march 28 and 29, expect it not to be so in Makati Republic due to the sheer volume of vehicles that pass by Makati CBD everyday and yet the Binay royal family is not doing any thing to relieve Makati residents and employees from the traffic problem.
