Road rage incidents are the main cause of some heated arguments that can be as deadly as an accident.
And in our country, road rages are a common sighting especially in the bustling city highways.
But just recently, the video of a woman who slapped the old taxi driver after the old man allegedly cut her lane went viral and became the subject of a public outcry condemning her overreaction and disrespect.
The short video showed the woman alighting form her gray, old-model Honda car and approached the driver’s side of the taxi.
She is then seen slapping the driver and went onto her rage to the point that she even took a golf club from her car and hit the side of the taxi.
After some moments of silence, the driver of the taxi recently gave his point of view of the story.
The netizen who uploaded the video named Gilbert Manalili talked to the driver on the video named Virgilio “Bhoy” Murillo Doctor to clarify the incident.
For information, the incident happened in Congressional Road towards the direction leading to Visayas Avenue in Quezon City.
According to Mang Bhoy, “Nagbi-biyahe ako kahapon, merong Honda Civic na kulay blue nakaharang sa aming dinadaanan. Dahil ang bagal ko, binusinahan ako kasabay ko na FX… tumabi siya… 30-40 na lang ‘yung takbo niya… para ‘kong inabutan na nagalit siya, eh ‘yun, nangyari na ‘yung lahat. Nagkumpronta kami sa… nag-sorry po ako nung sakaling ako ‘yung nagkamali.”
He then revealed that the woman was the driver of the car and her male companion is actually her husband.
When the woman proceeded to slap him, he said that his blood pressures shoot up because of fear and anger.
“Gawa po ng sampal sa’kin, ako’y na-high blood na rin… medyo nakalma na rin ‘yung damdamin ko…” said the poor driver.
He also revealed that he recently suffered from a stroke and that is the reason of his way of walking when he alighted from the car.
Instead of showing care for the ailing driver, the woman was overheard mocking the condition of the driver and alleged that he was just using it as a way to escape his fault.
Many netizen showed their support for the old driver and lambasted the woman for her actions.
One said, “Idemanda yan at sana ma-cancel driver’s license niya para magtanda. Walang respeto. Sana lang di niya gawin yan sa magulang niya!”
Another angrily said, “Nakakaawa po kayo sir. Sana mabigyan ng aksyon ang ginawa sayo ng hinay*#ak na babae na yon.”
Many other shared the same sentiments as this comment and until now, the video was still circulating and spreading fast in the web like wildfire.
Indeed, road rages are really one of the most regretful decisions one may ever do.
