NEGLIGENT DRIVING Sgt. John Mendiola of Highway Patrol was at the right time and place when a car driven by tourists was cruising along the walkway along Beach Road. Mendiola apprehended the tourists who reasoned out that they thought the walkway was a road. Sgt. Mendiola caught the tourists driving on the pathway toward a lady walking her dog. The tourists apologized for their negligence. “It is not a road. If you take pictures when you drive here, other people from China will come and see this they will do it again.” The tourists were given a warning. “On the first violation, we teach them the traffic rules and so we give them a warning. Next time they do it, we then issue a traffic violation ticket.” Mendiola added. (Bea Cabrera)
