After an incident involving a driver shooting an one of its enforcers, the MMDA are reconsidering to arm their men as to protect them from these cases.
Tina Velasco, MMDA spokesperson and assistant general manager for planning, stated that Chair Francis Tolentino wants to review the previous proposal to arm traffic enforcers. She said that, “He wants to revisit that proposal. But if ever it pushes through, only a few … traffic enforcers will be trained and armed as part of our public safety mandate.”
