TMG accosts 26,000 motorists

() - September 2, 2005 - 12:00am
The Traffic Management Group (TMG) of the Philippine National Police has accosted over 26,000 motorists for driving vehicles violating the "no plate, no travel" and the anti-blinker and siren policies as part of the anti-crime effort of the government.

TMG chief Senior Superintendent Maximo Dilla said some 118 blinkers and sirens have been confiscated by TMG operatives.

"After a month, if there are no complainants, we will use the sirens and blinkers for our patrols. That way, the government, particularly the PNP, will be able to save some money," Dilla said.

Last Tuesday night, TMG officers flagged down the vehicles of Cavite Gov. Ireneo "Ayong" Maliksi and former National Labor Relation Commission (NLRC) Commissioner Roy Señeres.

Dilla said he and his men were manning a checkpoint in front of the Coastal Mall at the intersection of Roxas Boulevard and NAIA Road in Parañaque City when they stopped Maliksi’s Ford Expedition, which was being escorted by two Toyota Revo vans. The two escort vehicles had illegal blinkers. — Cecille Suerte Felipe
