Rex Gatchalian scolds man who shamed Valenzuela traffic enforcers for doing their job
Rex Gatchalian shot down every argument raised by this netizen who thought Valenzuela City traffic enforcers were wrong for apprehending a car that parked on the side of a busy road.
The Valenzuela mayor scolded a man named Mark Jerald Buenafe on Facebook after he tried to make the enforcers look bad on social media. He claims that a car which stopped along Mindanao Avenue to take a “quick chat” was ganged up on by the enforcers with a traffic ticket.
The politiko had an 11-point response to shut him up, complete with an invitation to show up at his office on Monday morning to explain why his post was wrong.
“Double parking impedes the flow of traffic. Imagine Mindanao Ave., dapat payagan mag double park kasi ‘mabilis’ lang naman. Eh kung lahat yan na ang gawin sa national highways magdouble park dahil ‘mabilisl lang naman… eh di buong Minda Ave. Magmimistulang parking lot,” Gatchalian said. “Plain and simple bawal ang double parking.”
“Our people are merely doing their jobs. Kahit videohan niyo pa sila ok lang. Trabaho lang po,” he added.
The lesson: Do not ever double park nor mess with this politiko.
