MANILA, Philippines – The director of the Philippine National Police – Highway Patrol Group (PNP-HPG) is pushing for the mandatory training of Angkas drivers on safe driving and road safety.

“For safety, mas maganda nga na may training sila kasi magiging katuwang natin, sila maging example of a disciplined motorist,” said PNP-HPG director Brig. Gen. Roberto Fajardo on Monday.

(For safety, it is better that they undergo training so that they can be our partners and examples of a disciplined motorist.)

Fajardo made the proposal after the motorcycle taxi firm donated 50 modular motorcycle crash helmets to the police unit at Camp Crame.

Fajardo, however, said a law on the mandatory training has to be in place.

“For the meantime kung sino ‘yung gusto, it’s voluntary,” he said.

After months of public clamor, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) earlier authorized the pilot operations of motorcycle taxis in Metro Manila and Metro Cebu for six-months.   (Editor: Gilbert S. Gaviola)
