Bus driver in EDSA road rage shooting dies

It happens. It happens not only in the Philippines but in other countries as well. The courts have convicted two to life imprisonment for road rage. What made those cases really sad was that they were the ones who were committing the traffic offense and not the victim. But what about in this case?

If you’ve read any of my previous posts in this blog is that I have no love for public transportation in the Philippines, most especially buses and jeeps. Their blatant disrespect for other drivers, lanes, and total lack of road courtesy is what makes driving in Manila a real pain. You can ask any private vehicle driver in Manila that public vehicles are a menace on the streets. It’s actually great when they go on strike. The roads are clear of these irresponsible drivers.

Of course this entire case could be something else other than road rage. But the fact remains, if the traffic cops will not apprehend and discipline drivers on the streets. People will take the law in their own hands. This would not happen if the traffic cops or whoever should be issuing tickets and revoking drivers licenses actually did their job.
