Belmonte junks application of traffic enforcer in viral video

account_balanceQuezon City chat_bubble_outline0 Comments visibility

A video of an incident that happened recently along Scout Chuatoco was brought to the attention of the Quezon City government.

In the video, several traffic enforcers approached a motorist whose vehicle suffered a flat tire and ordered him to remove his vehicle immediately.

A heated confrontation between one of the enforcers, identified as Danilo Usi, and the motorist occurred. Usi was caught on video hitting the motorist and his mobile phone.

Upon investigation, it was discovered that Usi was still waiting for the approval of his application as traffic enforcer. He was deployed after completing the minimum required seminar for enforcers.

Atty. Ariel Inton, as head of the Task Force for Transport and Traffic Management, has taken full responsibility for the incident, saying he should have exercised prudence and good judgment before allowing Mr. Usi’s deployment.

Atty. Inton recommended to Mayor Joy Belmonte to reject Mr. Usi’s application, which the latter immediately approved.

Belmonte, for her part, reprimanded Atty. Inton for his failure to ensure that his enforcers stand the test of character and integrity.

As public servants, Belmonte recognizes the importance of maintaining the people’s trust by providing them with the excellent service they deserve.

Belmonte said the city government must constantly ensure that the people it employs adhere to the highest standards in government service.

She also underscored the need for QC traffic enforcers to undergo intensive training, particularly on the appropriate engagement with our citizens, proper handling of conflict and anger management.

As part of this, Belmonte assured the city-wide implementation of the no-contact apprehension to lessen contact and possible friction between enforcers and citizens.

The city government also seeks to empower the citizens by making them fully aware of their rights and the consequent penalties.

We appeal to citizens to observe traffic rules and regulations and report abusive traffic enforcers to authorities or via Hotline 122.
