MANILA, Philippines — The chief of the police Highway Patrol Group (HPG) yesterday ordered an investigation of two alleged traffic police riders caught on video doing stunts along a major road.

“I have directed our intelligence and investigation division to conduct an investigation regarding this unsafe handling of motorcycles by traffic police riders,” HPG head Brig. Gen. Alexander Tagum said in a Viber message to reporters.

Tagum was referring to a video that has gone viral on Facebook of two people appearing to be lawmen showing off by doing dangerous stunts along a highway.

They were seen doing the stunts even on the opposite lane, unmindful of vehicles along their way.

Tagum said the two are not HPG personnel, based on their investigation.

“These clowns are not HPG riders because they are not wearing our prescribed HPG rider’s high-visibility vest,” he said.

Tagum reminded police officers to instill discipline in all traffic motorcycle riders.
