Caloocan Rep. Edgar Erice has proposed to prohibit private vehicles from using EDSA during rush hour.

Erice said EDSA should serve as a "mass transport highway" in the meantime or until the MRT-3 rehabilitation, the Metro Manila subway, and a road connecting the North and South Luzon Expressways are completed.

"Kailangan maihatid muna natin nang mas mabilis ang ating mga manggagawa at makauwi sila nang mas maaga," he said in an interview with DZMM. 

"We need to usher our workers faster and get them home earlier. My proposal is that from 6 to 9 a.m. and 6 to 9 p.m., private vehicles should be banned from EDSA. Only mass transport should be allowed there," he was quoted as saying.

A wire report claimed that Metro Manila now has as many vehicles as its 13 million residents.
