A video of an alleged MMDA traffic enforcer bribed by a motorist had been circulating over Facebook. The said clip was posted by Facebook user ‘Kupal Lord’ on June 20, 2015 and had already gathered more than 650 shares.
In the four minute video clip, the traffic enforcer is seen standing by the driver’s window. It could also be heard that he is explaining that the penalty costs two thousand pesos but he has no receipt. He told the driver that he will give back the driving license if the said amount was paid. The receipt can be claimed at the city hall. He did not know that the driver’s girlfriend sitting in the passengers seat is taking a video.
The enforcer was asking for his percent of the commission and told the driver to pay the rest at the city hall. The driver has five days to settle the cost. The driver asked him if he could pass up the violation with 200 pesos, to which the enforcer was surprised. The enforcer insisted to have his commission at that moment and said that he is even willing to have have the price of his commission. The two settled with 300 pesos, unfortunately, upon checking his wallet and asking his girlfriend, the driver was only able to extract 260 pesos. The enforcer received the money as the conversation is already taking long.
BUWAYA SA DAAN! NANAMAN!
