LOOK: Stone thrown on PNR train damages its windshield

A stone-throwing incident that damaged the front glass windshield of the refurbished Rotem train unit of the Philippine National Railways (PNR) was reported on New Year’s Day at 6:01 PM in Caloocan.

To avoid any disruption in service, the damaged glass windshield underwent immediate replacement on  January 2, 2020, at 12:03PM.

This recorded stone-throwing incident is now on top of the previous 14 similar incidents reported from December 2 to 21, 2019.

The Department of Transportation (DOTr) again calls for heightened vigilance from the public, particularly our train-riding commuter, to help us in pinpointing the areas where these misdeeds happen, and to immediately report them.

The DOTr and PNR are seriously monitoring, and have closely coordinated with law enforcement authorities and LGUs to apprehend those who will be caught in the act, and also undertake necessary measures to put a complete stop to these destructive and dangerous activities.

With the help and assistance from the general public, rest assured that the DOTr and PNR will exhaust all means necessary to protect our valuable equipment, and ensure the safety of our commuter.
