Kevin Angeles drives a tricycle and feeds his family of five. According to him, what they would do is slash the amount of food that they used to buy.
For instance, the meat that they used to buy would be reduced to just 1/4. Everything else would just be 1/4.
"Bibili na lang po kami ng kahit na 1/4 halimbawa nung repolyo...Tapos bibili na lang din kami ng 1/4 na karne o kaya manok. Dati araw-araw namamalengke naman kami pero kasi yung bilihin kasi nun dati mura pa," he said in an interview.
Drivers are among those who have been greatly affected during the pandemic. While restrictions may have already been slowly lifted, the rising oil prices still burden the sector a lot.
In another story, the driver of the RAV-4 who ran over a security guard in Mandaluyong did not appear at the LTO hearing. LTO issued a show-cause order against the driver, which required him to appear at the office. The order asked the driver to explain why an administrative case for reckless driving must not be filed against him and why his license must not be revoked or suspended.
Jose San Vicente, the driver of the SUV who ran over a security guard in Mandaluyong, may not be able to get a license again. The Land Transportation Office (LTO) has revoked his license. This revocation will make him ineligible to get another license again. He has not yet surrendered to authorities and he also snubbed two show cause hearings issued by the LTO.
