Over the first four days of the dry run of the dedicated motorcycle lane, 1,494 drivers and riders have been stopped along Commonwealth Avenue.

The number of vehicles flagged down for the first four days of the trial run for the dedicated motorcycle lane along Commonwealth Avenue between Elliptical Road and the Doa Carmen neighborhood, according to MMDA acting chair Romando Artes, decreased.

Motorcycle riders and four-wheel vehicle drivers equally, according to Artes, are becoming accustomed to the regulation, which will go into full effect on March 20.

The MMDA stopped 276 motorbikes and 61 four-wheelers for a total of 337 vehicles on March 9, the first day of the dry run.

On March 10, a total of 569 vehicles, including 368 motorbikes and 201 four-wheelers, were flagged down.

A total of 363 vehicles, including 177 riders and 186 four-wheel vehicle drivers, were flagged down on March 11.

On March 12, a total of 225 vehicles—128 motorcycle riders and 97 four-wheelers—were flagged down.

As we continue to direct our drivers for a second week of testing for the dedicated motorcycle lane on the busiest roadway in the city, we are optimistic that these numbers will continue to fall, Artes added.

The agency will smooth up the road in a week through patchwork operations coordinated with the Department of Public Works and Highways.

The MMDA is also considering installing reflectors and solar streetlights to illuminate the area and help prevent accidents.

If the strategy is successful in its pilot run in Commonwealth, Artes also suggested that the designation of an exclusive motorcycle lane might be implemented on other significant highways in the city.

Also, he urged drivers to obey the law and give the policy a chance.
