Traffic enforcer Camelo Cobarde Jr. was called to the office of Mandaue City Mayor Gabriel Luis Quisumbing on Wednesday afternoon.

Cobarde was surprised when Quisumbing handed him a cash reward of P5,000 and a certification for apprehending lawyer Elaine Bathan, the mayor’s chief of staff, for a traffic violation on Tuesday.

The Banilad resident also got to again meet Bathan who shook his hand and thanked him for doing his job well.

“We do not hesitate to recognize the heroic deeds of anyone here in Mandaue or by a Mandauehanon in other places as they are good examples for everyone to follow,” Quisumbing said.

“Nalipay ko nga duna’y ingon ani nga pagdayeg sa mga matinud-anon sa trabaho. At least ganado pud ta motrabaho bisan kapoy, init, abog, uwan. Ug hinaot mapanaminan sa uban ang maayong buhat ug magserbisyo nga matinud-anon,” Cobarde told Cebu Daily News.

(I am grateful for people who recognize hardwork. This kind of recognition inspires me to continue to do my job despite being exposed to fatigue, heat, dust and rain. And I hope that my good deed will also inspire others to also be truthful in their service (to the city).)

Cobarde, who has worked with the Traffic Enforcement Agency of Mandaue (Team) for five years, flagged down Bathan’s service vehicle after he saw her execute a u turn after crossing UN Avenue from D. M. Cortes Street.

Bathan who was on her was on her way to the nearby St. Peter’s Memorial Chapels was stepping on a portion of UN Avenue with double solid lines.

Quisumbing said he is happy with Cobarde’s dedication and bravery in the performance of his duties.

He said that Cobarde bravely apprehendedBathan and issued her with a citation ticket irregardless of her position at City Hall.

Quisumbing also handed P10,000 cash to be shared by three personnel of the city’s Janitorial and Security Services Unit (Jassu) for apprehending a snatcher who was victimizing Public Utility Jeepney (PUJ) passengers on July 9 while at the vicinity of a private hospital at the North Reclamation Area (NRA).
