Motorcycle back riding is still prohibited so whenever personnel of Cagayan de Oro’s Roads and Traffic Administration (RTA) catch one, a citation ticket is issued to the violator. But last June 17, one violator got a reprieve after it gotten to be near an RTA vehicle while waiting on a stop sign at Kauswagan-RER Junction.
As posted by netizen Daryl Salud who witnessed the incident, an RTA officer alighted from the vehicle and approached the motorcycle driver with a back rider. But instead of apprehending the driver and giving him a citation ticket, the RTA officer offered the back rider (lady in pink) a ride. Before the traffic signal turned green, the lady in pink was already onboard the RTA vehicle getting a free ride.
