Mayor Nieto: Tow trucks are like ambulances

Sep 15, 2018 @ 15:50

Cainta Mayor Kit Nieto said the municipal government purchased two tow trucks to service motorists whose vehicles have broken down on the road.

The Rizal politiko compared the tow truck to an ambulance.

“Sa isang tawag sa 911 o Cainta rescue, tumatakbo ang ambulansiya para mag-responde. May kasamang mga medic. Dadalhin ang pasyente sa pinakamalapit na ospital o sa kanyang napi­ling pagamutan. Libre ‘yun. Sa ganung panahon ng taranta, ‘wag na nating pabigatin ang buhay ng humihingi ng saklolo. Trabaho ‘yun ng gobyerno. Kaya may gobyerno,” Nieto said.

“Nagpabili ako ng da­lawang towing truck dito sa Cainta. Kami ang nagpapatakbo. Hindi kami nag-accredit ng private tower. Ginagamit namin ang mga ito sa mga may request ng road assistance. Walang bayad ang paggamit at pagtulong,” he added.

But Nieto clarified that those who violate traffic rules should be penalized.

“Puwera na lang ‘pag nag-tow kami ng mga illegally parked na sasakyan. Wala pa ring bayad ang towing pero may violation ticket dahil sa violation. Kasi may kasalanan siya. Iba ‘yun sa nasiraan,” he explained.
