Road Rage Between Between Angkas Passenger & MTPB Personnel Elicits Comments Online
The video footage of an intense confrontation between an Angkas passenger and MTPB personnel goes viral online.
Road rage incident is one of the major traffic problems not only in the Philippines but also in different countries all around the world. The cases of traffic altercations continue to increase despite the stricter traffic policy.
Short-tempered and hot-headed motorists are the most involved in traffic altercations that usually lead to further troubles such as road rage incidents. Road rage usually leads to massive traffic congestion and inconvenience along the road.
Traffic personnel are public servants hired by the government to control and manage the flow of traffic along the street. However, they should implement the traffic policy with respect and consideration towards others.
Recently, a Facebook user named Albert Bonavente Bautista has expressed his disappointment towards the personnel of Manila Traffic and Parking Bureau – MTPB for allegedly insulting him during a traffic altercation.
In the video, it can be seen that Bautista and some of the MTPB personnel were having an exchange of heated arguments after the traffic cops accused the Angkas rider of beating the red light.
Here is the full post:
“Calling the attention of Manila Mayor Isko Moreno Domagoso and Manila Traffic and Parking Bureau – MTPB
‼️PLEASE READ. Hindi ko na nakuhanan ang buong pangyayare. Not everything that transpired was captured on the video. Late na ko nakapagvideo.‼️
I figured in a road rage with 6 of your personnel (I only was able to get photos, videos and names of 4) in front of the DPWH Building right outside Intramuros while riding Angkas.
NAPAKABABASTOS NG MGA TAO NIYO. Tinawag akong bading, tanga, malambot when I started asking for their names and their IDs. On the video, you will hear that I retaliated and called one of them “ulol” and bisakol after calling me “tanga”. Even before I started taking the video, may nagsalita na jan sa mga yan ng “Ano ba tong pakialamerong bakla na to?” Please do not assume that I would retaliate for no reason. PUBLIC SERVANTS? WHO ARE THEY SERVING, REALLY? Their interests? Yan ang hirap sa mga taong nabibigyan ng kaunting kapangyarihan- inaabuso.
Beating the red light DAW. We crossed on a yellow light. The crossing was merely 4-6 meters which you can pass through on a yellow within or even less than 3 seconds. They were citing the trucks behind. Bakit daw yung mga yun nakastop. Ikukumpara ba talaga ang velocity ng motor sa truck? Kung tumawid yung mga truck on a yellow light, yun ang obvious na aabutan ng red light that’s why they didn’t cross. Hinarang nila kami together with other motorists (mga nasa sampu yan lahat pero umalis yung iba at wala silang nagawa). When I started asking for their names dahil hindi nakakabit ang mga name plate nila, this old guy in the third photo shouted “Ticketan mo yan lahat! Walang patatakasin! Imbes na makiusap kayo.”
Bakit makikiusap kung alam mong tama ang ginagawa mo? Bakit ka pakikiusapan? Para lagyan ka????? Para makumbinsing tama yang ginagawa mo?????
Kung hindi lang maaabala ang byahe ng rider ko, pumunta agad kami sa city hall kaso may trabaho din yung tao na naperwisyo na dahil sa pagkuha ng lisensya niya.
I sent this to your inbox Manila Public Information Office
If you’re wondering kung bakit hindi nagsaslaita yung rider ko, he’s only 23. Nanginginig yung tao sa takot kanina dahil kulang na lang kuyugin kami ng mga hayup na yan. Kinailangan kong ipahinto sa kanya sa Mini Stop sa may gilid ng Manila Cathedral para bumili ng tubig. Naghati rin kami sa 500 na multa para sa offense na hindi naman nacommit.
Suspended sila for 1 month.
‼️SA MGA BISAYA‼️
Hindi kayo kasali. Yung tinawag kong bisakol eh yung kausap ko. Wag kayong painvolve na “Naoffend ako!” Hindi ka maooffend kung hindi mo aangkinin yung narinig mo dahil unang una, hindi naman yun para sayo kaya tantanan niyo ko. Puro kayo ingay.”
