Netizens Lambasts LTFRB Chairman Delgra for His Suggestions on How to Deal with Abusive Taxi Drivers (Video)


Netizens took to social media and lambasted the chairman of the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) for his suggestions on how to deal with abusive taxi drivers.


During an interview with Danie Razon, host of UNTV, LTFRB Chairman Martin Delgra reminds the public to asser their rights in riding taxis.

Watch the Interview with LTFRB Chairman Delgra:



The LTFRB Chairman was quoted as saying "Huwag niyo nang tanungin kung saan kayo pupunta. Pag sasakay kayo, Sakay ka na. I have to make a shoutout here: There has been a change of social behavior ng mga tao, na parang bang kung hahanap ka ng taxi e inaanticipate mo na tatanggihan ka, when in fact yung taxi na 'ya serves a public service. Ibig sabihin, nagseserbisyo publiko sila, they [passengers] have to demand that service to them."

Atty. Martin Delgra's statement on national TV about his suggestions on how to deal with some abusive taxi drivers did not sit well among netizens who saw the video interview on UNTV.

Despite the fact that the UNTV showed some footage of the real incidents wherein, a commuter conducted a social experiment showing how abusive some taxi drivers are, the LTFRB Chairman still insisted the mistakes lies with the commuters and not the driver because they did not assert their rights as a passenger.

Veteran La Salle Professor Antonio Contreras lambasted the LTFRB Chairman by posting the following comments on his Facebook Page:

"Saan ba nanggaling na lupalop ang taong ito at ganito mag-isip?
At ano? Makikipag-away pa ako para ipagpilitan ko sarili ko na masunod. Safe ba ang pakiramdam ko na nakasakay ako sa taxi na ang driver ay galit sa akin?
At mapapanatag ba ako na ang asawa o mga anak ko ay nakasakay sa isang taxi na galit sa kanila?"
