MANILA – Watch the video of the Manila traffic enforcer hanging onto a car that sped through the streets.
The job of the traffic enforcer is to make sure that the drivers, pedestrians, and passengers obey the traffic rules. They are posted in almost every corner of the streets.
Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso strictly advised all the traffic enforcers in his city to refuse bribes offered by some drivers. He said he will give a reward to the employees who are hardworking.
Recently, a Manila traffic enforcer got injured after he was dragged in the streets as he hangs on to a speeding vehicle. Manila Public Information Office (PIO) released the footage on its Facebook Page.
It can be seen in the video that Manila Traffic and Parking Bureau (MTPB) enforcer Adrian Lim was clinging into a gray Mitsubishi Xpander that speeds off to the streets to escape arrest. The incident happened on the streets of Sampaloc and Santa Cruz districts on Saturday morning, November 16.
Based on a report from CNN, the Manila Traffic enforcer fell off at Gelinos Street and was immediately brought to the Jose Reyes Memorial Medical Center by responders from Philippine Red Cross.
MTPB chief Dennis Viaje said Adrian has been discharged from the hospital. The police captured the 54-year-old driver named Orlando Ricardo Jr. on Oroquieta Street Cor. Tayuman Street in Brgy. 366. He is facing charges for hit-and-run and serious physical injury.
