Based on the posted video which the netizen claimed to have been taken when they were “at the stoplight along Daang Hari in front of Ayala Southvale,” the motorcycle driver knocked on the door of the car to confront the driver.
The driver did not open his door until a traffic officer came. The motorcycle driver was saying something so the driver asked him to remove the cover in his mouth. The motorcycle driver removed his mask and showed him a nameplate on his chest.
He complained that the driver kept on honking at him. “Ako po yung nauna dun sa lane niyo eh [I am ahead of you on your lane],” the motorist said.

Many Facebook users expressed that what the cop did was right. One netizen stated that the driver should have let the cop finished with what he was saying first before he interrupted him.
One Facebook user expressed in his comment that the video shows that the cop did not use his profession for his advantage during the incident. Instead, he sought the aid of a traffic enforcer.
