12 Pasig officers receive traffic violation tickets
Twelve Pasig City enforcers received violation tickets after they were caught breaking traffic rules and regulations in the city.
In a Facebook post, Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto said enforcers were issued traffic violation tickets and had their vehicles impounded during a surprise inspection by the Pasig's Traffic and Parking Management Office (TPMO).
"May mga nahuling nagda-drive nang walang lisensya at matagal nang expired ang lisensya (They were caught driving without a license and their licenses already expired)," Sotto said, adding that these traffic enforcers were also driving unregistered vehicles.
Sotto said the city government will not tolerate impunity among public servants under his watch.
"Hindi tayo papayag na may impunity sa ating mga ranggo. Kung nakagawian dati na exempted ang mga naka uniporme sa batas trapiko, babaguhin natin yan ngayon (We will not tolerate impunity within our ranks. If those men in uniform used to be exempted from traffic laws, we will change it now),” he said, citing the other 30 traffic enforcers accused of extortion were removed from their positions.
“Kung tutuusin, mas mataas nga dapat ang standards ng mga kawani ng pamahalaan (Strictly speaking, the standards should be highly imposed for those working in government), "he added.
Sotto said there has been huge progress in strengthening the accountability of the Pasig City government to its people.
Sotto reiterated that his administration will sustain unpoliticized and principled public service to his constituents.
"Ika nga, alisin mo muna ang troso sa mata mo bago mo sitahin ang puwing sa mata ng iyong kapwa," he said.
