Jeepney Drivers Cry Large Fines After Charge for Face Shield Violations
JEEPNEY DRIVERS – Passengers should be the ones charged with face shield violations because it’s their fault not to observe protocols, drivers cry.
During the operation of the Inter-Agency Council for Traffic (IACT), many jeepney drivers were apprehended and fined after they were caught not observing minimum health guidelines for public transportation.
In the guidelines released by the Inter-Agency Task Force for COVID-19 response for the resumption of public transportation, drivers should oblige passengers to observe minimum health protocols.
When riding a public vehicle, passengers should wear face masks, face shields and observe physical distancing. The drivers also put dividers in the vehicles to ensure that the distancing policy is observed.
Meanwhile, some jeepney drivers are complaining about the expensive fine charged by the IACT after they were apprehended because their passengers were allegedly not wearing face shields.
On News 5’s post, they insist that the passengers are the ones who should be blamed and not them. Enforcers should fine the passengers as it is their fault not to observe the COVID-19 health standards.
