Funny how much confusion a simple sign can create...
A few years back, I was in the car when someone asked: Who is this Ped Xing? Is he some kind of diplomat? There are so many signs right now around Manila. (And yes, it was a serious question.)
An officemate of mine confessed earlier today that he thought it was street name when he first saw the sign somewhere along the Espana area. He found it strange that so many streets had the same name, and eventually it all made sense. :P
If university-educated people have no idea what it means, I wonder what the professional drivers think it means. It would also be interesting to find out if commuters know what this sign means. I can just imagine.
Oo, matagal ko na nakikita 'yan eh. Sino kaya si Ped Xing? Mayaman siguro na Intsik... May pinsan pa nga siya eh, si Railroad Xing. Labo naman ng pangalan niya.
