LAPU-LAPU CITY, Cebu — The two motorists who were involved in a road rage in Barangay Marigondon on Monday, October 2, were ordered to pay their fines or risk being hailed to court.

Mario Napuli, head of Lapu-Lapu City Traffic Management System (CTMS), said the two road rage protagonists were issued citation tickets for obstruction during their fistfight.

A taxi driver and habal-habal driver were involved in the road rage.

“Ila man gipasagdan ang ilang motor ug taxi atol sa ilang pagsinukmagay, maong naka-cause siya ug traffic,” Napuli said.

He said that they have given them seven days to settle their fine ranging from P500 to P1,000, or else, they will pursue filing a complaint in court against the two motorists.
