A COMMUTERS group has sought the intervention Senate and House of Representatives in investigating the bloody bus crashes that killed a total of 11 civilians and injured 73 others in Tarlac and Compostela Valley.
“These separates bus crashes are very alarming and need serious attention by the authorities especially the Department of Transportation, Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board and Land Transportation Office-Motor Vehicle Inspection,” said the Public Commuters and Motorists Alliance.
“Hindi pwede na puro suspension lang. Ang trabaho ng LTFRB, isipin nyo itong huling 2 bus crash araw lang ang pagitan at parehong blood bath may mga patay at serious injured, do something itigil ang mga ganitong accidents pumapatay ng mga commuters,” said the group.
“We believed bloody road accidents would be avoided,” the group insisted.
“Please po sa LTFRB at mga bus operators tiyaking 100% roadworthy ang mga units nila bago ibiyahe, hindi na pwedeng ibalik ang buhay kapag namatay kana,” said the group.
The LTFRB have both preventively suspended the operations of the two bus company involved in the incidents in Compostela Valley Monday afternoon and (NLEX-SCTEX) Tarlac last week.
The insurance provider of the bus, Passenger Accident Management and Insurance Agency Inc., (PAMI) said they have already released and turned over the financial assistance to the victims and their families.
