Many of us may see traffic officers as stern individuals who we do not want to meet on the road. Besides, seeing them up close usually means you may have violated a traffic law and are going to get penalized for it.
For one motorist in Quezon City, Philippines, however, these men in uniform became his personal “angels.”
In his Facebook post, J.P. Mercado described how he was in serious trouble while driving along Katipunan Avene at “quarter to 3 AM” just recently. Suddenly, his car “was stalled and wouldn’t start.”
“I was at the Ateneo Gate 3 intersection, and I was a sitting duck. I watched the stoplight change colors helplessly as cars and trucks honked at me and switched lanes with almost audible irritation, despite my hazard lights being on.”
Mercado, who admitted he knew nothing about fixing vehicles, began to get really worried.
“I kept looking around for MMDA (Metro Manila Development Authority) officers. I knew that once they spotted me, it was game over,” he said.”
Soon enough, a group of MMDA officers got off their bikes and started towards his direction.
Much to his surprise, however, they were there to lend a helping hand. Mercado recalled:
“All my fears… melted away as soon as one of the officers gave me the friendliest smile one could ever hope for at that time of night and said, with a concerned and consoling laugh, “Sir, ano pong nangyari?” (“Sir, what happened?”)
I told them how the car stalled, while confessing that I knew nothing about cars, and so they asked me to open up my car’s hood to see what was wrong.”
The rest, as they say, is history. The MMDA officers were able to give the car a quick fix and Mercado was able to drive his car again.
Mercado said he “couldn’t resist giving them a nominal amount for their trouble” but the men in uniform politely declined each time he made the offer.
“I guess not all angels have wings. Some of them have uniforms. And bikes,” concluded Mercado in his Facebook post.
As of this writing, the post has generated almost 9,000 likes and over 1,500 shares since it was uploaded yesterday.
