Mayor Isko Moreno caught two traffic violators during his night roaming around Manila City on Sunday.
While on his way to a public hospital, Moreno caught an illegally parked jeepney.
At first, the Moreno tried to ask the driver of the jeep to move. However, the latter showed a rude behavior and didn’t quickly cooperate because he never notices that the Manila City mayor itself was the one asking him to place his vehicle in the right place.
“Brad, brad baka gusto mong umabante?” Moreno told the jeepney driver.
“Eto na nga umaabante na nga eh!” the driver replied.
The response of the driver irritated Moreno because it seems that the former didn’t like being called out for his traffic violation.
“Teka lang ha… matapang pa eh, hulihin mo nga chief,” Moreno told one of his staff.
Moreno came out of his vehicle to personally confiscate the license of the driver who only scratches his head after he realized that the one called him out was the Mayor itself.
“Pasensya ka na po sir,” he told Moreno.
“Galit ka pa kasi kanina eh,” Moreno replied.
Moreno also confiscated the license of a delivery truck after they tried to u-turn in an undesignated area.
He then reminded the violators that even at late hours, the city government of Manila is watching them.
“May gobyerno na ang Maynila ah,” Moreno said.
The Mayor then returned the license to the driver of the delivery truck and warned them not to violate traffic rules again even if they don’t see any authorities watching them.
When Moreno returned to his car, he told his followers that some jeepney drivers are angry when being called out for their traffic violation.
“Noong sinisita mo ang yabang pa eh… tapos noong hinuhuli na namin lahat na ng kuto inabot, pati lisa yata nagkaroon sa ulo eh puro kamot ang inaabot, pati tiyan binalakubak kasi kinakamot eh,” Moreno said.
“Mga kababayan, hindi komo alas dose ng hating gabi babalandra sa kalye wala kayong kusa… pag hinuhuli kayo anong nangyayari? lahat ng kuto inaabot niyo, kamot dito kamot doon,” he added.
