Capture the act whether it is good or bad
Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chair Francis Tolentino is giving motorists and commuters the go-ahead to videotape any and all traffic enforcers not doing their job or are participating in any illegal activity.
This stems from an issue involving a traffic constable caught on video allegedly accepting bribes from bus conductors. The video has now gone viral and the individual involved is under indefinite suspension and if proven guilty will be dismissed from service.
“I am encouraging motorists and the general public as well to use video cameras to record and document perceived illegal or unlawful activities by our employees or by anybody to help attain a disciplined society, and also for evidentiary purposes,” Tolentino said.
Tolentino is encouraging the public to take videos of any MMDA personnel suspected of being involved in any illegal activity and upload it to www.metrosolusyon.mmda.gov.ph.
