Next week is Holy Week. Which means many of us will be driving out of Metro Manila to try and escape not only the summer heat but also the stress that comes with city life. One of the most popular destinations during this time of the year—whether for a quick road trip or a weeklong vacation—is Tagaytay in Cavite. Offering cold weather and a number of restaurants and hotels, the city can be a motoring nightmare to drivers during holiday breaks. That’s because it’s really a favorite (and convenient) destination among people who don’t want to travel too far or spend too much for some rest and recreation.

Now, if you have the same idea for next week, you need to know that Tagaytay’s traffic unit is implementing a one-way traffic scheme to efficiently herd all the motor vehicles that are expected to converge in the city from April 13 (Saturday) to April 21 (Sunday).

Vehicles coming from Manila, Bacoor, Dasmariñas, Silang or Santa Rosa going to Nasugbu, Alfonso, Mendez or Indang are advised to take J.P. Rizal Street at the Petron-Maharlika East intersection.

Vehicles coming from Nasugbu, Alfonso, Mendez or Indang going to Manila, Bacoor, Dasmariñas, Silang or Santa Rosa are advised to take Tagaytay-Nasugbu Road at the Hagdang Bato (police station) intersection.

Be sure to save these traffic routes on your smartphone if you’re driving to Tagaytay City next week to spare yourself and your companions the inconvenience of getting lost or, worse, getting cited for a traffic violation. Good luck.
