A motorist was stopped by traffic enforcers, who told him he violated illegal parking. But while he was being issued a traffic ticket, he challenged them to define what ‘illegal parking’ means. The funny thing is that he seems to be confident that what he did is not ‘parking.’ Watch the video below and to check for yourself if his definition is really correct.
“I got into an argument with 2 stupid traffic enforcers in Legaspi St. in Makati. They ticketed the driver of our service for illegal parking. I was asking them to explain the definition of parking. Definitions should be Parking is when the driver leaves the vehicle unattended.” The caption reads on the video credited to a certain Mark Anthony Tuico Edano.
“When the driver is inside the car waiting for a passenger it is called STANDING. So there should have been a sign that says no parking and no standing. Sadly my phone died and was not able to record the entire scene. These enforcers were not just stupid but very arrogant!” The caption added, but the face of the netizen is not seen on the video.

But contrary to his claim, he was the one who is arrogant and the two traffic enforcers were very polite. You can hear him telling them to study the law very well. Nevertheless, the interesting part is that his own definition of illegal parking is wrong. No wonder, the Facebook page of Mark Anthony Tuico Edano has been deactivated as of posting.
As posted at www.gov.ph, the official website of the Philippine government, Republic Act No. 4136 (also known as Land Transportation and Traffic Code), Section 46 states that “Parking prohibited in specified places. – No driver shall park a vehicle, or permit it to stand, whether attended or unattended, upon a highway in any of the following places:
(a) Within an intersection
(b) On a crosswalk
(c) Within six meters of the intersection of curb lines.
(d) Within four meters of the driveway entrance to and fire station.
(e) Within four meters of fire hydrant
(f) In front of a private driveway
(g) On the roadway side of any vehicle stopped or parked at the curb or edge of the highway
(h) At any place where official signs have been erected prohibiting parking.”
And yes, you are smart enough to know the moral lesson of the video. Don’t you? 🙂 🙂 🙂
