Don Mariano Bus Falls Off the Skyway and Kills More Than 20 Passengers

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Kaskasero ang karamihan ng bus drivers dahil naghahabol sila ng quota. Dapat talaga buwanan na ang suweldo nila at hindi percentage ng kinikita ng bus. Ang daming taong nadadamay sa pagka-abusado nila. Walang paggalang sa traffic rules, sa ibang sasakyan, sa pedestrians at sa pasahero. Praying for the families of those who died in the accident. Magpa-Pasko pa naman.

Ilang beses na bang nasasangkot yang Don Mariano Transit na yan at ang nakakapagtaka eh binibigyan pa din sila ng pagkakataon o lisensya sa makapagbiyahe? Sa totoo lang sana naman eh huwag na silang bigyan ng prangkisa at tuluyan ng kanselahin. Tama na, Sobra na!

Don Mariano buses and its drivers are known as killer buses. Mabilis talaga sila magpatakbo. Dapat may drug test every month or quarterly ang lahat ng bus, truck at jeepney drivers.

 Mga natuto lang kasi magmaneho yan sa mga kaibigan. Wala naman talagang proper na driving lessons, kaya kesehodang makapatay sila or sila ang mamatay sa kalye. Kagaya ng mga nagmomotor, lumiliko ka ng pakanan mag-o-overtake din sa kanan mo. Dapat i-revise ang pagkuha ng drivers license sa atin para lahat ng iyan ay matuto sa mga road courtesy and safety sa kanilang sarili at sa kanilang mga pasahero.

We can only see a small part of the whole picture now. This bus liner has been involved in many other accidents in the past. All they get is suspension of franchise. The root cause of the problem is how unfair these drivers are being treated by their employers and the government. They should get a regular monthly pay instead of the commission-based scheme. Bus lines in the metro are so many it's impossible to make a profit.

Public transportation should be operated by the Government and regulated. The salaries of the drivers should be fixed. Their working hours should be fixed also.

Thanks to the LTFRB for issuing franchises more than our roads can handle and way too many to serve the too small size of passengers on the streets. The government should start canceling franchises or soon another accident like this will figure in news items again.

Punishment should not be limited to the bus company. The government implementing agencies should also be held accountable.

Heads should roll at LTFRB for not properly regulating buses, and at MMDA for not implementing traffic rules and thereby encouraging PUV drivers all over Metro Manila to drive recklessly.

Sama mo na LTO, dahil pinagkakaperahan lng ang drugtest pgngpaparenew na lisensya. They should have better regulation for people/drivers in public transportation.

I think dapat managot din ang enforcers ng Skyway. Hindi naman nila hinuhuli ang mga overspeeding na bus sa skyway. Pag dumadaan kami dyan, between 90-100 ang takbo namin pero nakakapag overtake ang mga bus na max 80 lang dapat ang takbo.

Hindi magkakaron ng disiplina sa daan kung hindi disiplinado ang mga nagpapatupad ng batas mismo.

In my opinion dapat lagyan na ng rev limiter mga bus na may max speed na regulated ng gobyerno like mga bus at rented commercial vehicles kahit pedal to the metal na di pa rin lalagpas sa designated na speed limit kahit pababa it will still maintain its max speed.

There is now a proposed law that seeks to update speed limits on major roads. "The bill seeks to update the present rules and regulations on road safety and traffic management by including freeways or the controlled access highways in the classifications of roads and set a uniform speed."

  1. It was a tragedy among the family of the passengers so the government must be aware of the bus companies and give them a suspension. I think the government must do an action to the rules in transportation and be strict enough to the drivers for the safety of the passengers. I hope that our governent will be awake in this kind of tragedy
