I’ve been very critical of the MMDA and the work they do for the past decade or so, but I really have to commend them for reaching out to the public lately through the Internet. Their site received a much-needed facelift recently, doing away with the 1990s web design staple of colorful texts and marquees. Although it’s nothing spectacular, but at least it does the job of being easier to navigate and being more readable.They’ve been tweeting actively, for one thing, and get this–they respond to e-mails. It’s incredible.
In their effort to reach out to more people, they’ve been tweeting MMDA-related FAQs. A few weeks ago, it was the 10 Things That Drivers Should Know. This week, The Anti Littering Law: 10 Things You Should Know. The law does have teeth, but it would be great to see it being actually implemented.
