Default Checkpoints

Thought after the covid that will be it for checkpoints? Now there's Comelec.

Took 30 minutes to crawl towards one on a busy 3 lane highway late this afternoon. It was a holiday and that made it a longer hold up. But as the summer approaches the traffic tends to increase in our area even on ordinary weekdays. Traffic funneled to one lane. Every car stopped, let's see your licence, quick look around. Motorcycles, the usual. Three months of that to look forward to! Will be finding another route back home to avoid it. It's only one side of the road.

But you have to remember that we are now a couple of months into the "Potential Politician" hunting season which will conclude a few weeks after the election.

Well yes, but don't you think any one or group who seriously wants to hunt them or disrupt in an area like Cavite will know all about these big checkpoints? Maybe they are operating others on back roads too or will move to them later. But if they keep the one yesterday they will hurt the tourist industry in the Tagaytay area, which is desperate to recover after 2 years of set backs. Forgetting about residents people from Manila don't want 30 minutes (or even more later when summer comes) of EDSA conditions to start their day or weekend there.

3 weeks ago I waa stopped at a comlec checkpoint on west service road in paranaque on way from makati to alabang. I smiled sweetly without my mask on as I was in my car on my own and asked why i was stopped as it is quite clear I am a foreigner and not involved in comlec issues. I want to see your proof of covid injections. I lied and say i do not have them and this is therefore an lawful stop and search. he froze looked me up and down and told me to wait there whilst he spoke to a senior officer. He strolled over and wanted to know who I was. so i showed him driving license and work ID plus my letter of authorised travel as a BPO worker. He waved me through. I did write a complaint to DILG and they disbanded on my next trip that way within a couple of days. there were far more gentle with me than the boss was when I got home

What is the mask policy currently as during the first lockdown it was decided that husband and wife in the car alone didn't need to ware masks yet leaving the country and returning 10 months later they seem to expect mask waring all the time.

But if you were living under the same roof they said you still needed to:

But the policy seemed to just be ignored and/or not enforced. Didn't see any reports.

Went past the Comelec checkpoint I complained about on the Tagaytay road today and it was almost deserted. No one being stopped that we saw. Maybe some high placed people delayed on their trip to their Tagaytay mansions last Tuesday to celebrate the Lunar New Year holiday made some phone calls?
