On a Facebook post by a concerned citizen named Phoebe Nicolas, she posted her experience when she politely told the driver to stop playing games on his mobile phone while driving as it may result to an accident. To her surprise, the driver got angry and told her to just transfer to another FX if that's the case.
"Just this afternoon, I was riding this FX on my way home from the Pila in front of Mega A. I sat next to the driver so I couldn't help but notice that he's playing clash of clans while driving. When we reached Exchange Road, I got really concerned so I politely told him "kuya wag ka sana mag laro ng games sa cellphone mo while driving", in which he answered me back with "anung pakielam mo?".
I was really speechless after hearing his response. Then I told him that I'm just concerned kase baka mabanga kame. He got agitated and told me to transfer to another FX. He pulled over and handed me back my 23 pesos fare and told me "lumipat ka na lang para di na tayo mag talo". I said "cgeh po", got off the FX and took this picture before he could speed away (di ko sya kinunan ng pic, baka sapakin ako hahaha). But I was shaking kase parang ako pa masama sa pag saway ko sa kanya.
Nakakaloka si kuya, so kung nabangga pala kame or if he hits a pedestrian, sasabihin nya "anung pakielam ko?, busy ako sa mga kalaban ko sa clash of clans", ganern??? Eh di wow! I really hope this reaches LTFRB.
I tried to call the "hows my driving" hotline but it was only ringing. I'm not trying to make pasikat here or something. Most of us are commuters and concerned tayo sa mga PUV na sinasakyan naten. I may sound atribida for others, but at the end of each day, all we want is to get home safe. Malaki respeto ko sa mga UV express drivers, because of them convenient tayong nakakapasok sa work.
I just hope that wag naman sana nila abusuhin ang pagiging expert nila in driving, an accident can happen in just a blink of an eye. Kung sya lang mag isa masasaktan eh di fine, but if 10 other passengers will be in danger, that's totally unacceptable.
So there you go. Its entirely up to you if you want to share smile emoticon#onlyinthephilippines #commuterblues #uvexpress #parasaekonomiya #ltfrb"
If you were her, would you do the same for the sake of everyone's safety? If the driver refused to, would you just leave and transfer to another FX and let the other passengers be harmed? Share your thoughts.
