A spokesperson of the LRT Authority (LRTA) said that Six stations of LRT Line 1 will not be operational during this coming Saturday (May 28) and Sunday (May 29) and will resume operations on Monday (May 30). This is because of the integration and fine-tuning of the rail system’s signaling system between the original LRT line-1 (Baclaran to Monumento) and the LRT Line-1 north extension (Balintawak to Roosevelt).

Who's Driver is at Fault in the AJ Perez Accident?

This AJ Perez accident is been on the news for days now. The accident was between a PARTAS bus and an ABS-CBN van resulting to the death of actor AJ Perez who was only 18 years old. And to my surprise none of the top news networks seemed to talk about who's driver is to blame. Days after the accident, they show little information on what really happened. ABS-CBN showed a animated reenactment of the accident but unusually shows it just 2 to 3 seconds. I don't what's the reason for this sort of whitewash or are they just not jumping into conclusion yet? It's just unusual for the two big news network to not report on who's to blame. We also always see these kind of accidents on the news and usually they interview the two drivers and each blaming the other.
