Marvic Leonen pushes for car ownership reforms
Associate Justice Marvic Leonen is really serious about making the Philippines more walkable. The abogado stated that cars who dare park in sidewalks and roads are subsidized by taxpayers.
Taxpayers actually subsidize private car owners when they are allowed to park on sidewalks and roads. The true cost of owning a car is not borne by the car owner. This plus the easy financing provided by car companies to own a car contributes to traffic.

Leonen said that the true cost is not borne by the car owner alone. The abogado also questioned how easy car financing contributes to the worsening traffic in the metro.
