The recent spate of road crashes involving large vehicles has also caught the President’s attention. Duterte wants to put an end to over-speeding trucks – likening the road mishaps involving them to a “massacre.”

In a STAR report, the President said recent road accidents have resulted in the death of at least 10 people, a figure which he said is “no longer acceptable.” He added, “The police should control that… Overspeeding has to be controlled because many are dying… It’s like a massacre almost every day,” he added. 

“Riding a truck is almost an adventure now because if you ride a truck, that son of a b____ would really get rammed,” the President said during the distribution of land ownership certificates in Cotabato City. 

Earlier this month, at least nine people died while several others were hurt in a road mishap involving two trucks and a jeepney in Cardona, Rizal. The truck reportedly lost control, killing pedestrians who happened to be in the area. – Alexis Romero
