MANILA, Philippines – Agad na nirespondehan ng UNTV News and Rescue Team ang isang tawag mula sa concerned citizen kaugnay ng sugatang motorcycle rider na naaksidente sa Don Antonio Drive, Brgy. Holy sa lungsod Quezon.

Nadatnan pa ng grupo ang biktimang si Andrew De Leon habang iniinda ang malaking gasgas sa mukha at sa iba’t ibang bahagi ng katawan.

Idinadaing rin nito ang pananakit sa kanang dibdib na posibleng tumama sa manibela.

Agad na nilapatan ng paunang lunas ng grupo si De Leon at mabilis na isinugod sa East Avenue Medical Center.

Kuwento ng mga nakakita sa pangyayari, nasagi si De Leon ng isang sasakyan kaya ito nawalan ng balanse sa minamanehong motosiklo.

“Ang motor kasi tama ang takbo, ito biglang… yung malaki biglang lumiko siyempre pababa ito e nabundol siya,” ani Mang Roger Radasa.

Samantala, isang aksidente pa ang nirespondehan ng grupo sa westbound lane ng Tandang Sora Flyover sa Commonwealth Avenue sa Quezon City, dakong ala-una ng madaling araw nitong Lunes.

Nagtamo ng gasgas sa ulo at sugat sa tuhod ang pasahero ng isang taxi matapos bumangga sa isang concrete barrier.

Ayon sa biktima, nakatulog ang driver ng taxi na kinilalang si Raul Tayao habang nagmamaneho na agad namang inamin ng huli.

“Hindi ko rin nga napansin nga medyo nakaidlip din ako ng konti kaya pagtingin ko na lang nanjan na iniwasan ko lang,” saad ni Tayao.

Tumanggi namang magpadala pa sa ospital ang biktima dahil minor injuries lang ang tinamo nito sa aksidente.

Posible namang maharap sa kaso ang driver dahil sa pagkasira ngb concrete barrier. (Jerico Albano / Ruth Navales, UNTV News)

Marje Pelayo   •   October 23, 2020

MANILA, Philippines — The city government of Quezon City has relaxed curfew regulations upon the release of a memorandum signed by Mayor Joy Belmonte on October 20.

According to the new ruling, public safety hours shall be from 12:00 AM to  4:00 AM

The general public is advised to stay at home during these hours except those who are still out because of work or on the way home from work and those dealing with emergencies or for the purposes of air or sea travel. 

Meanwhile, essential activities such as but not limited to market operations (market bagsakan), food take-out delivery, pharmacies, hospitals, convenience stores, and delivery of goods may operate on a 24-hour basis.

The city government now allows persons aged 18 to 65 to leave home provided they have any of the following:

  • Company ID
  • Government-issued ID
  • School ID
  • Authorized Person Outside Residence (APOR) ID
  • Barangay ID or barangay certification

Persons younger than 18 or older than 65 may leave home only for indispensable reasons. 

Also, quarantine passes shall no longer be required, provided that previously issued quarantine passes shall continue to be honored as an alternative to the above-mentioned IDs.

If a certain barangay intends to impose stricter curfew, it may request to do so to the authorities of the Quezon City government. MNP / Evangelyn Alvarez

QC gives away free helmets as it begins ‘no bike helmet’ policy

Marje Pelayo   •   October 5, 2020

MANILA, Philippines — Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte recently approved Ordinance No. SP-2942 which requires bicycle riders to wear a helmet while traversing through the streets of Quezon City.

She stressed that the new policy aims to make bicycle-riding a safe mode of transportation as the city slowly shifts to the new normal amid the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

“We need to err on the side of caution. Huwag nating isugal ng ating mga buhay (Let’s not risk our lives). Mabuti nang masiguro na ligtas ang ating paglalakbay (It is better to ensure the safety of our journey), ” said Belmonte.

For those who will be caught not wearing a helmet, the new ordinance imposes fines ranging from P1,000 for the first offense; P3,000 for the second offense; to P5,000 for the third offense.

However, the city council agreed to lower the fines following appeals by advocacy groups to consider today’s difficult economic circumstances though it has not detailed the amount yet.

The city government distributed free helmets to those unable to afford to buy one so as not to burden them with additional expenses, according to Belmonte, and to help them comply with the ordinance.

“Gagawin natin ito upang matulungan ang mga nagbibisikleta na hindi kayang bumili ng helmet upang hindi masakripisyo ang kanilang kaligtasan, (We are doing this to help bike owners who cannot afford to buy a helmet so that they will not compromise their safety),” Belmonte said.

The Department of Public Order and Safety (DPOS) chief retired Gen. Elmo San Diego has begun reminding bicycle riders about the ordinance and handing free helmets in strategic areas in Quezon City.

On Thursday (October 1), the DPOS distributed 100 helmets and 120 helmets on Friday (October 2) as part of the initial 2,000 helmets to be given away for free to those who cannot afford it.

QC requires helmets for bike-riding public

Aileen Cerrudo   •   October 1, 2020

Under the new normal, the Quezon City government is requiring bicycle riders to wear helmets while traversing roads in the city.

Mayor Joy Belmonte approved Ordinance No. SP-2942 to further encourage bike-riders to wear helmets as protection, especially with more people traveling by bicycle.

“Ngayong bahagi na ng new normal ang pagbibisikleta, nais nating gawing mas ligtas ang aktibidad na ito para sa mga dumadaan sa ating lungsod, (Since biking is part of the new normal, we want this activity to be safe for everyone travelling in our city),” she said.

The ordinance sets penalties imposing fines of P1,000, P3,000 and P5,000 for the first, second and third offense, respectively.

Belmonte recently initiated the implementation of a Bike Lane Project to provide a safe place for people who have shifted to biking as an alternative means of transportation amid the community quarantine. AAC
