Just read that Pasay City is proposing to put up a school for traffic enforcers and investigators. This really is a good idea, assuming that the curriculum covers everything from traffic regulations to courtesy.

I think that this should really be an MMDA initiative. I know that the MMDA does not actually employ these "local" enforcers, but it would be a good idea to standardize the training of all enforcers across all the cities in the metro.

Anyway, here's the link to the article.

The article says that enforcers are only paid P254 per day. No wonder they're prone to corruption. One thing that they should realize is that if the enforcers do their job then the city cashes in on the fines, which they should then use to increase the pay of these people. That should help bring down corruption in their ranks.

traffic enforcer school for pasay traffic enforcers?

dapat lang ata... ang babastos ng mga traffic enforcers dyan sa may bandang edsa extension and buendia extension.

kaya lang dapat siguraduhin nila na may resulta, otherwise, its just a waste of money and resources.
