People : Atty. Yves Gonzalez - MMDA's EDSA Traffic Discipline Manager

Last year I wrote a post about an MMDA project, a joint undertaking of TV5 and MMDA : The Traffic Navigator - an internet-based traffic information system which informs/advises motorists and commuters the best routes with the less traffic to take and pass through in Metro Manila. I was so impressed about the project  I was sharing the information about the project with friends and the public. I wasn't mistaken. The Traffic Navigators was voted product of the year.

Behind this very successful project is a young man who thought of this idea. The man is a techie, a legal mind and an MMDA traffic official. He is the epitome of what an ideal public servant should be. Imagine an application developer, a programer, a lawyer (a BAR top notcher at that), and a hands-on worker rolled into one.

MMDA's Traffic EDSA Traffic Discipline Manager Atty. Yves Gonzalez
He was recently one of the guest speakers in a forum I attended (Gamechangers Forum), and the guy can talk. He shared how the the ideas of the Traffic Navigator and the MMDA Twitter Account came about. I was really surprised when I found out that he is the person responsible for  these very impressive and innovative MMDA projects. Listening to him gives you a different impression of a government official and civil servant. Hopefully we will have more of his kind in our government service. After listening to him, you know that there is still hope for our country.

The next time you see a young good-looking guy manning the traffic in EDSA with an MMDA logo in his uniform, that must be Atty. Yves Gonzalez - MMDA's EDSA Traffic Discipline Manager.

  1. Atty. Gonzales has resigned as traffic director of MMDA. A big loss to MMDA. Hopefully his talent and expertise would be tapped by other government agencies. We need good people like him in the government.
