A group of advocates for “social transformation” on Wednesday prompted drivers of public transportations to be extra careful on the road, as people start to rush in various passenger terminals to go home in their province in time for the All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day.

Dakila (nobility) issued the reminder as it honors the memory of former member and comedian Tado Jimenez, who perished in an accident in Bontoc in February 2014.

In a demonstration at the Araneta Center Bus Terminal in Cubao, Quezon City on Wenesday, October 31, 2018, a Dakila (nobility) member reminds drivers of public transportations to be extra careful on the road, as people start to arrive in the passenger terminal to go to their provinces in time for the All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day.

Some of the placards ranged from serious requests such as “Manong, paki-ingatan po ang mga mahal namin sa buhay”, to pleas interlaced with humor — “Dadalaw lang po ako sa patay pero ayoko pa po mamatay”.

To recall, Jimenez was among the 14 people who died on the spot after a GV Florida bus fell into a ravine in the Mountain Province. His trip was intended for his “Life Begins in the Mountain” project.

Every November, majority of Filipino Catholics travel back to their provinces to honor their dead relatives.  Travellers usually take the buses from Metro Manila to their home provinces.

Prior to Dakila’s demonstration, different government agencies such as the Philippine National Police, Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency, Land Transportation Office and Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board have already inspected public buses at the terminal, and assessed drivers’ ability to embark on long and successive trips. /kga
