Mercy Killing Through Killer Buses

Bodies of dead passengers covered with newspaper were laid on the road after a passenger bus fell off the Skyway last December 16, 2013. Photo grabbed in Inquirer.net.
Last 2013, there were eight fatal bus accidents that ended several passengers' lives. These passengers were either just about to go to work, some were on their way home, and some was just about to go somewhere else. Who would have thought for instance, that some of these unfortunate lives belong to someone who works in a call center? That on his/her way home, who would have thought that this bus ride was his/her last trip?

When people describe Metro Manila buses as "killer buses," we are not over-reacting. We are not exaggerating. These terror vehicles zoom around EDSA like there are no other vehicles on the road. Rarely they follow traffic rules and regulations. Rarely they stop on the places designated - they stop anywhere. EDSA is their racing track.

Everytime I go to work, I have no choice but to ride these creatures. Well, technically, I have a choice, if I have enough money to ride a taxi. From P28 from Novaliches to Cubao, my fare would blow up to P250 from Novaliches to Eastwood. A big difference that will force me to choose riding these buses even though I don't want.

Aside from the danger that these killer buses bring, some spice are added by these bad persons. Pickpockets, robbers, anyone who would cause harm on your trip. Neither would anyone know that you will be one of these guys when you go to work or home, not only on buses but also on all types of public vehicle.

Not all people have their own cars to be sure of their safety. You're not even sure of your safety if you have one. Not all can afford to ride a taxi, too, though some allot a part of their transportation allowance for it. Everytime you go to work, just be alive, alert, and as much as possible, keep those eyes open! And just don't forget to mention a prayer whenever you go to work. He will guide us always!

  1. Hi Mayu! I used to work in a BPO, too. Served the BPO industry for a decade. Chance that we might have been colleagues at work? Hehehe.

    It's really sad that we still live in an age where killer buses (and jeepneys!) are everywhere. Riding a cab alone is not safe, too. Saying a prayer is really important - everywhere we go and in everything we do. :)

    1. Hi Petite Momma! Wow, where did you work before? :) Well, I must agree to you with the cabs, they're not safe anymore, too, unless you ride those na kilala na talaga. Or choose those with GrabTaxi or EasyTaxi. Hehe.

  2. Safety really is a must. I'm blessed not to have to battle with commuting daily because I work from home, but I understand the struggles since I did work the night shift before. Hope you all keep safe always!
