In the video shared by ABS-CBN, one can see the traffic enforcer attempting several times to block the vehicle from speeding away from the scene of the incident.
ABS-CBN further reported that the traffic enforcer did not issue a ticket anymore to the car’s driver after they agreed on a settlement amounting to P4,000 for the damage sustained by the motorcycle.
According to the report, the incident happened on the corner of Quirino and San Marcelino streets in the City of Manila, though it did not state whether the enforcer also sustained injuries.
The report revealed, however, that officials of the Manila Traffic and Parking Bureau were dismayed after learning the traffic enforcer did not issue a ticket, and also agreed to a settlement of P4K for the damages incurred to the motorcycle.
Another motorist, who happened to be in the area when the incident happened, was able to capture a video of the event from a different angle and then posted the footage on Facebook.
The recent incident happened more than two weeks after that incident in Mandaluyong where an SUV sped away after bumping and running over a security guard manning the traffic.
The driver of the SUV has since then surrendered to police authorities at Camp Crame, where he and his family held a press conference with some police officials.
Police authorities said they did not put the driver in jail because they do not have legal grounds to do so.
Viral stories are often the ones that touch the emotions of people. Many of these stories are about how people overcome the obstacles facing them and became victorious. Others are about humorous circumstances, though there are a few that talk about sad endings.
Several months ago, a story about the video of an online seller bursting into tears of joy when she found out she passed the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) while doing live selling also went viral.
The seller, Jerlyn Esteves of Masbate City, said she didn’t expect to pass the exams as she wasn’t able to review properly because she was too busy with her live selling. She admitted she took the same exam in 2019 but was not able to pass it even if she reviewed for the test properly. Esteves also said she went through a lot before finally passing the examination for teachers.
In some cases, viral stories aren’t about talent but brought about by circumstances. One of such cases is the photo taken by netizen @ellagarcia of a posted sign inside a jeepney plying the Sta. Barbara-Dagupan, Pangasinan route. The posted sign contained the earnest appeal of the driver to passengers for a few pesos additional fare. The sign indicated that the driver doesn’t compel passengers to pay a higher amount of fare but they can voluntarily do so if they could. The driver of the jeepney, according to the sign, said that his appeal came about due to the high price of diesel fuel.
