MANILA, Philippines — A video showing a couple snuggling and kissing while on the road that has now been widely circulated in social media was not shot in the Philippines, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) said Wednesday.

The DOTr earlier issued a notice reminding motorists traveling with their lovers to keep their eyes on the road and hands on the wheel to avoid accidents.

“UPDATE LANG PO! Napag-alaman naming sa ibang bansa kuha ang viral video ng magkasintahang naglalambingan habang nagmamaneho ng sasakyan,” the department said in a Twitter thread.


The video of the couple, which was shared on Facebook by Carbrazer.tv, has been viewed more than 870,000 times and shared by over 10,000 users.

The DOTr earlier said it submitted the clip to the Land Transportation Office (LTO) for investigation and appropriate action.

The department however said there are also Filipinos that are guilty of doing such “sweet” acts.


“TANDAAN: Ang pagmamaneho, tulad ‘yan ng lovelife mo. Dapat sa kanya lang naka-focus ang iyong mga mata para hindi ka na makabangga o makadisgrasya ng iba,” it said.

“Ang tunay na relationship goals: Maging safe together, para siguradong may forever. LOVE LOVE lang!,” the DOTr quipped.  (Editor: Mike U. Frialde)
