Erap Just Fired ALL Manila Traffic Enforcers For Extortion

In an unprecedented move today, Manila Mayor Joseph Erap Estrada has fired ALL Manila Traffic and Parking Bureau personell for alleged corruption.

“I want them all out, no exception,”Estrada said.

His order covers 600 traffic enforcers and 90 office personnel of the MTPB. The mass firings came after the Mayor reportedly received numerous complaints of extortion and other illegal activities that MTPB were involved in.

Of course the city still needs traffic enforcers and aides, and to that end there will be openings for around 300 new enforcers starting today.

The recently sacked personnel can still re-apply, but they will have to meet a new set of standards that will be determined by a special selection comittee.

Aside from cleaning their ranks of corruption, Manila is also looking into increasing the salaries of traffic enforcers from Php 6,000 to Php 10,000. Estrada has also launched a “traffic super body” to oversee stricter implementation of traffic rules in the city, as well as come up with solutions to decongest its perenially traffic-choked roads.

The agencies included in the super body are Manila’s Department of Public Safety, MPD-TEU, Manila Tricycle Regulatory Office, Office of the City Engineer, Manila Barangay Bureau, City Treasurer’s Office, and the Manila City Hall Action and Support Assignment.

  1. kailangan din kasi pag kinuhanan ka ng license, kung mag seseminar ka dun sa malapit sa bahay (province) or sa workplace, yung iba malalayo pang lugar at hassle kung pabalik balik kapa sa manila tas dadagdag ka pa sa trapik kung nag dala kapa ng sasakyan. yun din kasi madalas ko marinig sa mga enforcer na corrupt

  2. Pagkatapos pakinabangan tatanggalin? Anggaling. Eh yung sinara nyong kalye sa gilid ng city hall tapos pinapadaan nyo yung kawawang public sa maliit na eskinitang puro tindahan? Angganda ng park sa may UDM, tambayan ng mga estudyante at nagpapahingang tapos ginawa nyo lang basurahan ng mga sidewalk vendor? Papogi points lang yan. Kita nyo papanget lalo ang manila niyan.

  3. Dapat kinakasuhan iyong mga tiwali. Pag mapatunayan ay kinukulong at pinagbabayad ng danyos. Sa ganon ay iiwas talaga na tumanggap ng lagay at ipatupad ang batas. Kaya hindi iniinda ng mga curropt na authority dahil tanggal lang sa trabaho, lilipat o hahanap lang uli sila ng ibang job. Iyong iba ay nagkapuhunan na kaya ok lang matanggal dahil may pondo na ng pang negosyo. Pero kung kakasuhan at iilitin pag aari nila dahil mapatunayan ay iiwas na mga iyan na mag curropt.
