A motorcycle rider was arrested in San Fernando, Pampanga for running over an Land Transportation Office (LTO) enforcer after trying to escape due to violation.

In a Facebook post, Department of Transportation (DOTr) Assistant Secretary for Communications and Commuter Affairs Goddes Hope Libiran reported that witnesses saw LTO enforcer Cris Canlas and LTO Enforcer Jerome Pamintuan were apprehending motorcycle rider Robert Jocson for not wearing a helmet.

However, instead of stopping, Jocson tried to run over Canlas. Canlas was able to avoid Jocson, who then aimed for Pamintuan.

“Matapos banggain si Pamintuan, tumakas pa umano si Jocson ngunit bumangga naman sa isang truck, na naging dahilan kaya ito ay naabutan at nahuli ng mga pulis, (after aiming for Pamintuan, Jocson tried to escape but he collided into a truck and police officers were able to make an arrest)” according to Libiran’s post.

Based on further investigations, authorities found that Jocson also has an expired motorcycle registration and had no license. He also tried to provide false information regarding his true identity and address.

Jocson is now detained at the San Fernando Police Station while Pamintuan is confined at Mt. Carmel Hospital. Pamintuan sustained knee and head injuries. He is scheduled to undergo an operation on Monday (March 2).—AAC

Authorities caught motorcycle riders in Cagayan de Oro operating under Angkas

Authorities have caught several motorcycle riders operating as taxi service under the ride-hailing app Angkas in Cagayan De Oro City which is outside of the designated Motorcycle Taxi Service Pilot Implementation Study area.

After receiving several complaints, the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) Region 10 office conducted the operation against several units of Angkas. The motorcycles were immediately impounded.

In a Facebook post of the Department of Transportation (DOTr), the riders were “reported to have been violating the terms of the MC Taxi Pilot Study guidelines adopted by the Technical Working Group (TWG).”

“Under current transport laws, Motorcycles are strictly prohibited from being utilized as public transportation. The exception now is the ongoing MC Pilot Study program being implemented by the TWG in Metro Manila and Metro Cebu only,” the post reads

Under the law, riders who are operating colorum motorcycles will be fined P6,000.

The pilot test run is still on-going and is expected to be done by March 23, 2020.

Meanwhile, the Quezon City Regional Trial Court was not in favor with the request of the Lawyers for Commuters Safety to suspend operations of other motorcycle taxis.

Based on the court’s decision, the group presented insufficient evidence for the court to provide a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) against other motorcycle taxis for hire.—AAC (with reports from Joan Nano)

MANILA, Philippines – A police officer involved in a “road rage” incident that left two people dead in Candelaria town in Quezon Province is facing dismissal from service, the Philippine National Police Internal Affairs Service (PNP-IAS) said on Tuesday.

PNP-IAS Inspector General Atty. Alfegar Triambulo said the cop, identified as Staff Sergeant Alex Ilao Jr., has been undergoing a pre-charge investigation for grave misconduct and other administrative charges.

Ilao surrendered to authorities on Monday after he allegedly shot a businessman and his driver during a traffic altercation last Saturday.

Ilao has been disarmed and is currently staying at the PNP Headquarters. A request to place the suspect under restrictive custody is also being considered.

“Habang pending ang investigation ang kaso ng pulis, siya ay nasa headquarters lamang at hindi siya pwedeng umalis para hindi niya matakasan yung kaso niya, kung kailangan siya sa korte o sa IAS at sa mga investigating unit para maexpedite ang paglilitis sa kaniyang kaso,” Triambulo said.

(Pending case investigation, he will remain and will not be allowed to step out of the headquarters so he won’t be able to evade charges. If he needs to attend any hearings in court or in IAS and in investigating units to expedite his case hearing)

Triambulo said it may take up to 30 days before a resolution can be released on Ilao’s case.

The police officer will be dismissed from service and his benefits will be forfeited if he is found guilty of charges. (with details from Lea Ylagan)
