    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.
    implemented ba to o hanggang salita lang?

    Great to hear these words from Bayani. Unfortunately it looks like they'll remain only just that---WORDS. Alam mo naman sa Pinas...

    BF should put his money where his mouth is. Arrest all of those pesky pedestrians crossing C5!

    kawawa naman si "jay" pag nag walk

    seriously, dapat talaga di sagot ng motorist ang mga jaywalkers kasi in the 1st place di naman dapat sila dun,e...

    dapat dagdagan ang pedestrian lanes bawat kanto, magkaroon din ng bike lane.. katulad sa QC circle, di mo alam saan ka tatawid/malayo tawiran...tapos yung dapat bike lane, ginagamit ng mga gahaman sa overtake!

    pero naka-encounter na akayo ng ung aged man/woman na pag jay-walk sila pa galit!

    katwiran nila: matagal na nila ginagawa yun, di pa ikaw(ako) tao dun na sila natawid... tapos babanatan pa kayo na: wala kang galang!

    (di ko na pinapatulan ung mga yun--kasi mga walang pinagkantandaan/ breeding)

    Agree! If he really thinks Jaywalkers are at fault, then he should (or should have already, since this thread started back in 2002) put in place orders or measures to ensure that this is so. Or is he afraid that by doing so, he'll lose whatever votes he has left for higher political office?
