    Jaywalkers are now an endangered specie.

    According to Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chairman
    Bayani Fernando, motorists should not be held liable for the safety of pedestrians who recklessly cross roads outside of pedestrian lanes.

    In a radio interview yesterday, Fernando argued that the jaywalkers are
    the ones at fault in accidents and as such the motorists should not be punished.

    Under the present system, whenever an accident involving a pedestrian
    occurs, charges are immediately prepared against the driver by the
    traffic enforcement authorities.

    In most cases, however, the pedestrian is at fault for crossing the road
    not designated as a pedestrian lane.

    Fernando said that in these cases, the motorists should be acquitted
    because of the circumstances involved.

    MMDA executive director for traffic Angelito Vergel de Dios said
    jaywalkers should think twice before crossing outside of pedestrian lanes because most likely they would have to bear the burden of hospital costs on their own.

    De Dios said that the only reason pedestrians involved in accidents are
    compensated by motorists is out their compassion for the former.

    He stressed that the drivers are under no obligation to compensate the
    jaywalkers, the exception being in cases where the driver was speeding,
    reckless or under the influence of alcohol or illegal substances.

    dapat naman talaga ganyan eh. asaik, ang daming vehicular accidents na ang may kasalanan is yung mismong pedestrian dahil sa pagtawid ng wala sa lugar. a driver who is in his right senses will not hit a pedestrian naman eh.

    yung mga jaywalkers, malalakas loob kasi alam nila na maski sila may kasalanan sasagutin pa rin sila ng drivers in case nahagip sila to the point na minsan ginagawa nang pang blackmail yan eh. yung iba pa nga pinagkakakitaan na yan eh.

    galing talaga ni bf.. :D
