Bakit hindi nalang nila ipagbawal ang pagmomotor?! Nakakainis kayo ha! Mga naka-motor lang ba ang kaya nyo?
Sa mga motor lang ba naka-sakay ang mga kriminal, sa mga tinted cars, di ba sila sumasakay?
Sa mga motor lang ba naka-sakay ang mga magnanakaw? Sa mga close van, hindi ba sumasakay ang mga akyat-bahay?
Sa mga motor lang ba naka-sakay ang mga mandurugas? Yung mga sumasakay sa SUV, bakit hindi nyo sinisita, malinis ba sila?
Sa mga motor lang ba naka-sakay ang mga pusher at addict? Yung mga nakasakay sa magagarang kotse, hindi ba may addict at drug trafficker din dyan?!
Sa mga motor lang ba na-isasakay ang mga baril, sa palagay nyo, madadala nila ang armalite, bazooka at iba pang pangpasabog? Samantalang mas madami sasakyan na pwedeng maglagyanng mga yan! May IQ ba kayo dyan sa checkpoint, o tanging naka-motor lang ang kaya nyo?
Madami sanang maidudulot na maganda ang mga rules na ito kaya lang mukhang mas maraming butas na pagkakakitaan…
Bakit pa sila maglalabas ng Guidelines kung sila rin mismo ang di tutupad, ano yan nagpapagwapo lang.
