A shaky amateur video showing the commotion between a truck operator and a group of Manila traffic enforcers is making the round online.
Facebook user Red Dizon uploaded the video in the Facebook group ‘R.A.C.E.R’ to share his recent experience with Manila traffic enforcers.
The video was uploaded today, February 16, 2014 at 7:50 AM but the incident occurred yesterday.
According to Red Dizon, the traffic enforcer flagged down his employee driver for illegal parking.
This is contradicted by Red Dizon because the truck was about to enter a gated compound.
The traffic enforcers demanded P10,000 from the driver, then P2,000 until the demanded amount reached P1,500. Otherwise, the truck is going to be pulled by a wrecker.
It is not clear how Mr. Dizon got there, but let’s assume the truck driver informed him about the incident, forcing the boss to run to the rescue of his employee.
The video started when Mr. Dizon arrived and had a heated confrontation with the Manila traffic enforcers.
Dizon said one of the traffic enforcers tried to forcibly take the driver’s license of his employee driver from his hand but he did not allow it.
Dizon justified his behavior in the video because as the employer, he wants to defend his men, especially the poor driver who earns per delivery, driving goods from Manila to Tarlac.
Netizens applauded Mr. Dizon for his courage in stopping the attempted extortion and sharing it online to call the attention of the authorities.
One netizen suggested that a ‘no contact’ apprehension should be implemented to avoid such incidents.
“Ayaw ko sila mawalan ng trabaho. there are simple solutions to these type of problems. no contact ticketing na lang. di rin sila dapat kumukuha ng lisensya,” Shaun Roberts said.
Dizon said that the ‘no contact policy’ is already implemented by MMDA, hence his reaction when an employee was victimized by the traffic enforcers.
Mr. Dizon’s claim is true about ‘No Contact’ apprehension. Check link here.
Note: No Contact Apprehension is applicable in areas with MMDA CCTV cameras.
