Private vehicle owners are lucky enough to have the privilege to save themselves from the hassle of using the public transportation systems and commuting. They do not need to fit themselves in the overcrowded MRT and LRT, inhale the ever so grimy city pollution, nor endure the long duration of time where you just have to stand inside a bus because of the lack of seats. All they’ve got to do is sit at the comfort of their air conditioned cars and drive.
But with this privilege comes with a set of rules and regulations that car owners should adhere to. To lessen the daily volume of vehicle in the road, authorities set a number coding scheme for the drivers wherein a car with a plate ending in a certain number is not allowed to be drove for a certain day. Failure to do so would result to penalty.
But I guess people are just really out there trying to outsmart the authorities for their own benefits, like what this vehicle did in a video uploaded on Facebook by a user named Eda Maningat. She captioned it with:
“Makaiwas lang sa coding eh noh. Mahuli ka sana!”

The video was captured through Maningat’s dashcam. She was driving along Skyway Amorsolo Exit next to a white car driving in front of her. Based on the time stamp of her video, it happened just a few minutes before 7:00 AM, last Tuesday, September 25.
At first, one might notice that there was really nothing wrong with the video nor the car in front of her. But she soon noticed that the supposed plate number of the white vehicle fell hanging at the back of the car.
That was when she realized that the driver put a fake plate number on top of the original one to avoid violation. The fake plate number was just a piece of paper with a printed alphanumeric code of YN 3441.
But the real plate number of the car is ABD 6883, which means that the car should not be in the road during Tuesdays from 7:00 AM to 8:00 PM.
Netizens reacted to the video. Some of them were mad about what the driver did but some could not help themselves but laughed at the failed attempt of the driver to outsmart the coding rule. Some of them tagged the official page of the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA).
Here are some of the comments of the netizens:
“Tsk tsk! Pa-share! Make it public para kumalat tsk tsk!”
“Pasok ka before coding at uwi after coding kung ayaw mo mag commute.”
“From someone who got caught thrice because of coding (haha) I feel very offended by this!”
