On arrogant motorcycle riders
NAME WITHHELD, Baguio City

This concerns my latest terrible experience with a motorcycle rider plying in our city. I had similar experience just weeks ago, so I am sharing it to call the attention of concerned authorities.

Last Oct. 23, I was on my way to work passing through Loakan Road at 6:45 a.m. I was following a private car, which stopped at the John Hay main gate. Sensing that it will stop for a while due to the hazard signal from the car, I decided to over-take. I flashed my signal light that I was moving left to let the vehicle following me know of my intentions. As I was about to move left, a motorcycle suddenly passed by and almost hit my left side mirror. I blew my horns to get the attention of the rider but he sped away.

To the head of Land Transportation Office Baguio, I hope you include as one of your programs for the safety of commuters in the city the conduct of seminars for motorcycle drivers. Motorcycles are not made for its riders to take advantage of the roads, not minding accidents that they will cause if they continue their arrogant way of driving they are used to.

No wonder most accidents on roads now are because of these arrogant motorcycle riders.

I hope the concerned agencies will act on this before it’s too late.
