05 Jan 400 RTA Personnel Conducted Solidarity Walk For the Fallen Traffic Enforcer
Following the tragic killing of a traffic enforcer, Cris Cabingas, on December 30 near Cogon market, his coworkers conducted a half-day protest.
According to a report from Inquirer, all 400 traffic personnel expressed their sorrow and dismay over the unsolved killing of their colleague through the indignation rally and solidarity walk on Wednesday, January 4.
The Roads and Traffic Administration (RTA) enforcers were wearing their yellow uniform, carrying placards and began their walk from Gaston Park to Velez St. before going to the Cogon market. They then lighted their candles on the spot where Cabingas was shot dead.
Task Force Hapsay Dalan Chairman, Lawyer Jose Edgardo Uy said that the RTA personnel also wanted to show that they were not frightened by the attack. He said that they were not cowed and that they should not fear because they are the authority whose only mandate is to implement the city’s traffic laws.
Cabingas was only doing his job, he should not have been killed, said Enforcer Sonny Vidal. He also hopes that his killer will soon surrender.
RTA team leader Cabingas was patrolling along Guillermo St. to observe and monitor the traffic situation. Then an unknown man shot him from behind which caused his death.
