For the general commuting public, maging driver ka man o hindi...

Ingat kayo when passing through south super highway cor quirino ave.

On our way home from Makati , we took buendia then turn right to south superhighway, it was only 8pm and it was drizzling. we were cruising fine but it was a slow moving traffic. right after san andres st, there are these buildings which are modern version of home along the riles (near the designers depot), my wife screamed because somebody was trying to open the car from her side. sensing that it was locked he moved to the back door and tried to open it likewise, we were stuck in traffic and i was stunned that i could not think of anything to do but just look at him.

So when finally the traffic moved he also moved away casually tucking the gun in his belly and staring at me as if saying you are lucky you locked your door. thank GOD my wife is so makulit in reminding me to lock the door evertime we go. kaya to all you people beware of that place.

Actually you should be alert & be cautious when passing through south superhighway all the way to nagtahan.

Three days ago my driver had an encounter in this area. After dropping me off at work, the driver was on the south bound lane of South Super Highway near the home along the riles housing (near Sunday Machine Works and Designer Depot).

As he came to a full stop at the San Andres intersection stoplight, a man approached the car's rear passenger side, grabbed the car's antenna and broke it. The man remained beside the car, apparently waiting for the driver to get down and confront him.

Fortunately, the driver remembered my dad's warnings regarding these types of M.O.s and remained in the car. As the driver sped away, he noticed a group of men on the center island.

It pays to be praning,

Sara

Yes, I have witnessed a similar incident, maybe about a month ago, and reported it immediately to Police 117.

A young man tried to open the passenger door of the taxi in front of me. About three or four girls were inside the taxi at that time. Fortunately, the door was locked. I pass this route coming from Malacanang every night. Fortunately for me too, my car is heavily tinted so I am not easy prey. I shall call 117 again. I suggest you do the same. Although I
don't know if that would really help.

A similar incident happened to me along Quirino Avenue somewhere between the Flying V gas station and Iglesia ni Kristo.

3 men approached my car IN BROAD DAYLIGHT! and SLOW TRAFFIC! and tried to open the back doors. Bumusina ako ng tuloy tuloy to ward them off. It's scary 'coz that area has no patrolling policemen. When they failed to open my car, they tried the other cars naman. I don't know kung may nabuksan sila. Then yesterday, while the PMAP rally was going on along Buendia cor. Ayala, as I was about to cross that intersection, two of the rallyists tried to open my car doors again. Again in BROAD DAYLIGHT! WITH A POLICEMAN AROUND!

Hay, what the world has come to. I suggest you lock up and make a lot of noise to at least rattle those thieves.

mga tsong this really happend last wednesday, September sept. 10... and i hope u would take time in reading this...

I came from makati and was driving along south super highway (osmena hiway) going towards manila area, nung dumating ako sa maliit na bridge before the DESIGNER DEPOT, ung maliit na bazaar of clothes (corner quirino ave and osmena highway) , if ur coming from makati and u took buendia or pablo ocampo, mauuna ung bridge before DESIGNER DEPOT ung nasa harap ko is a gold honda civic, all of a sudden may mga lumabas na around 6 or 7 guys who obviously look like squatters who reside along the riles and biglang tinambangan ung civic, pinagsisipa, pinagyug-yug, pinagkukutkot ung susian and they were successful in opening the doors, tapos nagulat na lang ako isa isa nilang nilabas ung mga gamit
na nasa loob nung civic cds, bags, etc. im not sure kung ung driver is a girl or a boy , pero ung driver tinutukan ng kutsilyo... in short parang kinuyob ung civic, btw, ako and ung civic during that time (mga 8:30 - 9:00 pm) ay nasa right most ng lane... meaning right side lang namin ung lakaran ng tao... after rob bing ... they immediately jump off the bridge and went away... dami nakakita nun pero isang taxi driver lang ang tumigil to check ung condition ng driver... nga pala, may owner-type jeep na nasa harap ng katabi ng civic, sakay ay mga pulis, 2 lang ata yun... naka purple na uniform
(manila police)... i dont know kung nakita nila yung incident na yun... pero sa tingin ko naman makikita nila yun... natakot lang dahil 2 lang sila eh and their rusty pistols... just a friendly warning mga tsong... kung mag-isa kayo and mejo kita kayo sa loob ng kotse nyo (kahit ano pa yang kotse nyo, luma or bago) try to avoid muna if possible ung osmena highway at night or better yet try to have another route kasi mejo nagpaparamdam na naman ung mga modus operandi na tulad nun dahil pasko na ulet. if any of u guys have contact sa manila police, paki inform naman sila or just spread this news.... its for all us naman eh... peace!

Always better safe than sorry... forewarned is forearmed...

mga bro ingat kayo run, malapit lang ako nakatira dun kaya talagang totoo yung mga sinasabi rito, karamihan ng mga tarantado diyan nde mismo taga ilalim ng tulay (tapat ng sunday machine works) ginagawa lang nila taguan yun at takasan, mostly ng tulisan diyan mga taga-riles from Fabie, taga-Texas, taga-Muņoz, taga-Mataas na Lupa at mismo taga-riles (batangas line).

uso rin ang agaw cellphone jan tsaka holdapan sa jeep lalo na sa riles ingat din kayo sa parking lot ng Designer's
Depot kse yung iba doon naghahanap ng biktima (kase talagang madilim dun!) yan din ang isa sa mga reason kung bakit walang nakatira dun sa mga housing project na malapit dun sa tawiran sa kabila ng designers depot (yung maraming bata at totoy na nakatambay at yung iba nagbebenta ng sampaguita) wag din kayo tatawid dun dahil puro rugby boys and girls ang nakaupo run! ang masakit, walang ginagawa yung police detachment diyan!

sana makatulong ng konti

Yes very true this place is really confirmed.

My brother in law mistakenly forgot to lock was not as lucky. The robber was armed with knife and stole the cell phone, jewelries within just a minute I suppose.

So be careful and don't understand with a police station there it's not even helping.

notorius talaga ang lugar na iyan.

may binaril na dyan dahil ayaw ibigay ung celpon niya. naka kotse talaga ang paboritong tirahin dyan.

pulis patola ang naka assign dyan. baka nga mga bata pa ang mga pulis dyan dahil ruta ng mga trak yan.

Yup this place is notoriously dangerous.

A couple of years back, when I was on my way home from work (quite late at night), I witnessed an incident where thieves opened the door of a cab and just grabbed the handbags of 2 lady passengers. They were gone in a flash. The sad part is that there was a police car just 2 vehicles behind the cab...as expected wala man lang reaction.
