MANILA, Philippines —  A show cause order will be issued against the driver of a Philippine National Police (PNP) van that evaded traffic operatives after illegally passing through the Edsa busway.

In a statement on Thursday, the Special Action and Intelligence Committee for Transportation (SAICT) also said that the Department of Transportation assigned the Land Transportation Officer to issue the order.

The committee explained that a show cause order would be issued to the driver of a white PNP van for “evading the operatives of the Special Action and Intelligence Committee for Transportation (SAICT) after it was flagged down for illegally passing through the Edsa busway, northbound of Ortigas station yesterday afternoon.”


SAICT said the vehicle sped off toward the northbound section of the busway station, ignoring two Special Operations Unit operatives who attempted to flag the driver down.
