Noynoy Aquino, as the newly elected Philippine President is showing how a law-abiding Filipino should be doing in the streets, to follow the traffic lights. Under Presidential Decree 96, only motor vehicles designated for the use of the Philippine National Police, Armed Forces of the Philippines, National Bureau of Investigation, Land Transportation Office, Bureau of Fire Protection, and hospital ambulances can be fitted with sirens, bells, horns or similar gadgets.
The Philippine president would like to show an example that we should follow traffic lights. The police escort of P-Noy also stopped in red lights and did not used sirens as the news reported. I guess our new president is on to a good start here. He is teaching us that simple rules do matter even to the highest political position in the archipelago. The humility of Noynoy Aquino is truly inspiring.
Aside from the sirens or wang-wang, I think we should also start looking for those 3 colored stickers on the vehicles of Iglesia Ni Cristo members. Somehow, these 3-colored stickers (Green,White,Colored) of Iglesia Ni Cristo on their vehicles are being used as badges in escaping traffic violation apprehensions by the traffic enforcers. I don't know why and how does this 3-colored stickers of Iglesia Ni Cristo shun away traffic enforcers but I guess it really works. I know some people that are not INC members but they put 3colored INC stickers on their vehicles for the reason of "iwas-huli" daw.
I do not care if Iglesia Ni Cristo members are just being too proud of their INC membership but certainly putting 3colored stickers (Green, White, Red) does not impresses us that much. Christian way of living should be seen in our attitude and the way treats other people. Putting stickers on your vehicles so the people may know that you're an INC member is senseless. In this case, it truly shows how Iglesia Ni Cristo members are different from us. If what some people says about the power of 3colored INC stickers means "huli", I think aside from wang-wang, President Noynoy should also start looking to the INC stickers on vehicles.
Some Iglesia Ni Cristo members are abusive, some are not.
It is the right of INC members to put anything they want to on their vehicles. But somehow, those INC stickers are being used as clearance badge for any traffic violation apprehensions. I am not accusing, but this is based on my observation and some testimonials of passenger vehicle drivers that I spoken previously in regarding those INC stickers on their vehicles even if they are not INC members. We need to change this kind of special treatment to some certain group of people. It's time to move forward and I hope Iglesia Ni Cristo is "with us" in this huge undertakings for Filipinos to prosper even more.
