A netizen shared with us his recent experience with a traffic enforcer who was not wearing proper uniform and tried to force him to surrender his license due to a reported traffic violation.
According to the sender:
Kaninang umaga sa Aurora Blvd. going Cubao, may nagpatigil sa akin na traffic enforcer daw. Beating the red light daw ako. So tumabi ako at kinausap ko siya. Galit na galit ang manong na ito at biglang binunot na lang ang susi ko sa motor. Tinanong ko siya, “Bakit, nasan ba ang mission order mo?” Ang sagot nya, “Anong mission order ha?! Put***na sa giyera lang ‘yang mission order na ‘yan. Akin na lisensya mo!!” Hindi ko binibigay ang license ko sa kanya dahil alam kong wala siyang right para kunin. Tinanong ko siya kung on duty ba talaga siya dahil tingnan niyo po siya, hindi po siya naka-uniform. Ang sabi pa niya, “Bakit ang NBI nga hindi nag-uuniform ‘pag may hinuhuli.” Ito pa nakashorts at tsinelas. Kapag traffic enforcer ba kahit ganito na lang ang suot pag magmomotor? Sa mga katulad niya, maging fair po kayo sa tulad naming simpleng motorista. Kapag kami may mali kahit sa tsinelas lang ticket agad? Kayo okay lang? Bakit dahil authority kayo??!! Sa kinauukulan pakibigyan ng leksyon itong tao niyo!! Hindi niya alam ‘yung mission order. Dalhin niyo nalang to sa giyera..
Rough translation: This morning (June 20) in Aurora Blvd. going to Cubao, a man claiming to be a traffic enforcer asked me to stop. He told me I was beating the red light. So I stopped on the side and talked to him. He was furious and he suddenly pulled the key on my motorcycle. I asked him, “Why? Where is your mission order?” He answered, “What mission order? F**k, the mission order is only when you’re at war. Give me your license!!” I did not give it to him because I know he does not have the right to get it. I asked him if he was really on duty because look at him, he was not wearing a uniform. He even said, “Does the NBI wear uniform if they apprehend someone.” He was only wearing shorts and flip-flops. Why is it that this is okay if a traffic enforcer just wears something like this when driving a motorcycle? To people like him, please be fair to us motorists. If we commit something as simple as wearing flip-flops, we immediately get a ticket? But if you do it it’s just okay? Why, is it because you are the authority??!! To those in power, please teach your people a lesson. He does not the mission order. Bring him to war instead.
Here are the photos he posted showing the man apprehending him who was not wearing the proper uniform.
If it were you who was apprehended, what would you do?
