Former Binibining Pilipinas Universe 1982 and actress Maria Isabel Lopez posted videos of her driving in the ASEAN lane which was supposedly exclusive for ASEAN delegates.
Driving with hazards “on” at the #aseanlane 😃 I removed the divider cones !! Then all the other motorists behind me…
In her facebook and Instagram post, she said that she removed the divider cones and was able to get through the lane after MMDA thought that she was an official ASEAN delegate.
“If you can’t beat em, join them!” reads a portion of her caption, which she hashtagged #nosticker, #leadership, #belikemaria, #pasaway, and #selfpreservation.
Meanwhile, the Land Transportation Office already summoned Lopez. According to the transportation department, Lopez committed three violations such as Disregarding of Traffic Signs, Violation of Anti-Distracted Driving Act and Reckless Driving.
Lopez, however, asked for sorry to everyone who got hurt and affected.
Don't miss 24 Oras at 6:30PM tonight so you will see the whole picture on when, how and why I did it. Sorry to those who got hurt and affected.
As of writing, the post has already reached 24,004 shares.
