In the past, we have reported about “falling” rocks that hit cars driving along EDSA. It was an alleged modus operandi that has been occurring in Quezon Ave.
Recently, a similar incident happened along C5.
According to Alvin Binag’s post on Facebook:
Grabe! Mala-Final destination yun ah.. tagustagusan.. Thanks Lord for keeping us safe.. astig k tlga..

Basically, they were driving along C5 and in the area near the second overpass from Market! Market! southbound, a man threw a huge rock at them, hitting the car’s windshield and damaging it. Good thing that no one was hurt but the car was severely damaged.
He also posted a photo of their damaged car.
In the comments, he posted a clearer photo of the rock that hit their car.
This is disappointing. It’s good that no one was hurt but can’t anyone apprehend those who are doing this. This is costly to get fixed and aside from that, incidents like this one puts people’s safety at risk.
How can we solve this problem? What road safety tips can you share?
