Imagine a car robbery taking place in broad daylight-in the middle of a traffic jam.
Yes, that’s the exact scenario caught on video by a Nelbern de Pablo-a car theft happening right in the middle of a traffic situation in C3 Lake going to Navotas City. The video, which has since been making a buzz on social media after being posted on the Top Gear Philippines Facebook page, shows two men with a knife wrapped in a white towel nabbing the items inside a Mitsubishi L300 that was stuck in traffic.
The video also caught the ire of de Pablo, as well as various netizens, since the motorists who witnessed the incident did not do anything to stop the crime.
The incident likewise raised the question on whether the existing traffic security groups assigned in Metro Manila’s highways are capable of monitoring such criminal activities.
