Isang motorista ang hindi makapaniwala matapos malaman nito na ang nabangga niyang bisikleta ay nakalula pala ang halaga. Talaga namang matutulala ka nalang sa pangyayari dahil hindi mo aakalain na ganito ang halaga nito.
Ayon sa netizen na si Rome Vlad Salentes, sa kanyang Facebook post di-umano ang bisekletang nabangga ay ang uri ng bisekleta na Colnago at may brand na Cicli Corsa na umaabot ang halaga sa 458K lang naman!
Kung mapapansin mo sa larawan kita rito ang top tube ng bisekleta na putol, kung kaya’t ipapaayos daw ito ay gagastos rin ng malaking halaga.
Samantala, sa Facebook post naman ng isang Chad Rosales ang anak ng 71-anyos na lalaki na may-ari ng bisikleta, ang kanyang ama raw ay isang “seasoned cyclist, a Tour of Luzon survivor, with decades of cycling experience.”
At ayon naman sa aming source ang nakabangga daw sa ama ni Chad ay isang criminology student at nagpa-partime janitor sa isang Universidad.
Pero ayon kay Rosales, hindi na umano sila magsasampa ng kaso sa motoristang criminology student dahil makukulong lamang ito at alam nila na wala itong ipapangpiyansa at inisip rin niya na kapag ito ay nakulong baka hindi na ito makapagtrabaho o makapag-aral pa. Ito ang ayaw mangyari ng pamilya ni Rosales.
“If he couldn’t post bail, he would be detained indefinitely, dropped from his classes, and terminated from work for AWOL. This means that on top of his civil/criminål liåbilities, he would lose his opportunity to get his life together, finish school, and be a responsible citizen. We couldn’t allow it to happen” sambit ni Rosales.
Ayon kay Rosales mas mahalaga sa kanila na mas mabilis ang paggaling ng kanilang Ama. Narito ang buong post ni Rosales.
“A motorcycle rider crashed into my father who was cycling along 41 KM Marilaque Road, Brgy. Pinugay, Baras, Rizal on 29 February 2020 at around 8:30AM.
Rider, a criminology student and part-time janitor at a university, ran an errand for his employer morning of said day. Then, without his employer’s consent, he rode to Marilaque driving a Yamaha SZ 150. It was his first time riding to Marilaque, and he did it alone.
My father is a seasoned cyclist, a Tour of Luzon survivor, with decades of cycling experience. Sadly, his years of experience could not protect him from an inexperienced and incompetent motorcycle rider.
I’m reminding everyone to be mindful of cyclists on the road – they have the right to use our roads too.
I’m also reminding our cyclists to exercise extra safety precautions and follow traffic rules at all times.
Let’s keep our roads safer for everyone!
P.S. We decided not to file charges against the rider.
We would have wanted for charges to be filed against him first before we enter into an amicable settlement. But if we did file charges, he would have to be detained. And if he were detained, he would not be able to attend classes and report for work until he post bail.
Unfortunately, we were not sure if he or any of his friend or relative (in Samar) has the financial capacity to post bail. If he couldn’t post bail, he would be detained indefinitely, dropped from his classes, and terminated from work for AWOL.
This means that on top of his civil/criminal liabilities, he would lose his opportunity to get his life together, finish school, and be a responsible citizen. We couldn’t allow it to happen.
So, we accepted his offer to voluntarily pay for the damages he caused in exchange of not filing criminal charges against him. I’m unsure if he has the means to pay (probably none), but it is the least of our concerns. Our father’s speedy recovery remains the most important to us.”
Sa nangyaring ito, Maging aral sana sa lahat na nagmamaneho na mag-ingat at huwag sana maliitin ang mga nakakasabay nitong mga sasakyan o gamit pang transportasyon dahil maaring sa mata natin ay maliit lamang ngunit tulad nito na isang ‘bisekleta’ ngunit ang halaga ay halos 5 beses ang presyo sa naturang motorsiklo.
