President Rodrigo Duterte slammed the Toll Regulatory Board for allegedly failing to attach RFID to vehicles that caused heavy traffic in Valenzuela city and neighboring areas.
In his national address on Wednesday night, he said the TRB should carefully study whether the RFID system is really effective.
He said the government of the president is to blame for the failure of the TRB.
“We have a regulator. That’s the purpose of having a regulatory board ‘yung toll.
The problem is the regulator is another set of incompetent people, they should not have allowed a system right now to put into use without a trial for about 1 week and anticipate what could be the problem, ”said the president.
The president is also considering replacing the former TRB leader with former military or police officers when there is a recession in the implementation of the RFID system.
