Rex Gatchalian’s resolve to demand better services from the North Luzon Expressway just got even stronger after a totally smooth ride from its counterpart in the south.

The Valenzuela mayor had his driver bring him to Tagaytay to attend the wedding of a barangay captain when he belatedly realized how smooth they drove through the South Luzon Expressway.

“Had the chance to pass through slex toll plaza (very seldom do i come here bec may habitat is the north metro area) sa totoo lang hindi ko namalayan na nakaraan na pala ako (was busy texting kasi),” the politiko recounted.

“When I looked up, lumgapas na pala ako. I guess that’s what you call stress free seamless toll plaza experience… If we only had that sa north hindi na sana umabot pa sa ganito sa NLEX,” he added.

The pushback against NLEX’s faulty RFID stickers and readers forced him to suspend the business permit of the toll operator owned by bilyonaryo Manny Pangilinan, forcing the company into a toll holiday for its booths located within Valenzuela.

The two camps will meet on December 14 to hopefully resolve the issue.
