A motorcycle rider was facing multiple charges after he confronted the members of the Inter-Agency Council for Traffic (I-ACT), who apprehended him after he used the bus carousel lane along EDSA last Sunday, July 9.
In a video posted by the Department of Transportation (DOTr), they showed the confrontation between the said motorcycle rider and traffic enforcers.
The motorcycle rider, who the agency didn’t name, was shown to be uncooperative with the enforcers and even tore the traffic ticket he received.
He was now facing charges for disregarding traffic signs, failure to wear a standard helmet, failure to carry OR/CR, unauthorized attached plate, and reckless driving.
Meanwhile, DOTr reminded the private vehicle owners that they’re not allowed to use the bus lane anytime.
It can be recalled that many private vehicles were caught using the bus lane to save time.
“Mahigpit namang ipinaaalala ng Department of Transportation (DOTr) na ang EDSA BUS Carousel lane ay nakalaan LAMANG sa mga pampublikong bus, ambulansya, at sasakyan ng gobyerno na tutugon sa emergency.” DOTR said in a statement.
“Huhulihin at titiketan ang mga hindi awtorisadong sasakyan, habang haharap sa suspensyon ng driver’s license o report sa taxi ride-hailing services na pinagtatrabahuhan ang motorsiklo,” he added.
