The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) has issued orders suspending the operations of two bus companies, whose units [Joanna Jesh Bus (TYG-660)] were involved in a freak road accident that burned a doctor to death along the Epifanio delos Santos Avenue (EDSA) Quezon City, early Tuesday.
LTFRB chief Thompson Lantion said the suspension will be in place for 30 days pending investigation of the accident that killed one and injured three others.My personal opinion about this freak accident
Lantion also ordered the owners and operators of Joanna Jesh Bus (TYG-660), Amtrak Transport Inc. (TYF-868) and Commuters Bus Corporation (TXE-812) to appear before the LTFRB investigation on the accident.
Sometimes, as a private motorist, there is no other way to complain because no one really hears you out. I've been personally involved in a collision wherein my sidemirror was damaged (at least). The bus simply ran away. After that incident, I now have a baseball bat at my side if ever such incident happens again.
I can't put to words how I hate those bus drivers (yes, in general) They swerve from left to right irresponsibly and abuse their power. They have a bus lane (Yellow lane in EDSA) and yet, they still swerve in OUR lanes. How selfish can one be!? There should be a rule that if a bus enters the private lane, you can hit him with a baseball bat!
They use their size to threaten smaller vehicles. They race each other and what happens when they cause accidents? They say sorry, they didn't mean it etc.. WTF right? That's just plain BS man!
We all know that the owner of the bus company didn't intend to do that but, they are responsible for the drivers they hire. They should be at least aware that they are carrying passengers using large vehicles that can cause serious accidents. It's a ticking time bomb when drove by a stupid driver.
A good man was killed by that freak accident just yesterday. Now what? I'd rather have lost that bus driver than a man who can contribute something to the society. If we can just exchange their lives...
Death penalty to the driver who caused that accident. An eye for an eye should be imposed to discipline those unruly PUV drivers.
RIP to a good man, Dr. Sarabia. My prayers goes to you.
Articles about this accident:
I salute secretary Leandro Mendoza for suspending Amtrak and Joanna Jesh (both bus companies owned by the same company). They must all suffer as a team and company for their actions. This way, they will discipline each other.
They pick up passengers, leave their lanes and cut in front to get ahead of other bus without them thinking that they are obstructing traffic by parking in a slanting position.. tsktsk..
