Rex Gatchalian blasts NLEX for trippy RFID readers


Rex Gatchalian always gets a little nervous when passing through the North Luzon Expressway.

The Valenzuela mayor ranted online about his not-so-smooth experience in using RFID stickers whenever he drives through NLEX, saying it’s always a guessing game.

“Using the RFID of NLEX Corporation is the greatest guessing game of them all… sometimes it will work, sometimes it will not. Pero sometimes if you’re very very lucky if your car does the abante-atras dance and tamang tama ang sayaw ng kotse gagana siya!,” the politiko said, exposing his hugot as all cars are now forced to use the same technology.

“For 7 years (from ez tags to rfid) now I’ve been telling the management of NLEX to fix this yet up to now to no avail… I guess aasa pa ba ako eh wala naman akong choice but to pass through their tollways monopoly. Kaya wala naman pakialam mga tao sa NLEX,” he added, ranting against the MVP-owned tollway.
