The driver of the private car, Kristoff Guinto, said on his Facebook status that he was only looking out for the safety of the passengers of the bus but he is saddened because they were angry at him.
“Hindi nila alam buhay nila kapalit din kung may mangyari sa pag counterflow nila, rules are rules gusto natin magbago pero magtulungan din tayo lahat,” he said.
Eventually, a traffic enforcer came on the scene and tried to resolve the issue. Guinto was egging on the enforcer to arrest the bus driver because he was violating traffic rules, but the driver wasn’t budging.
Another man who was driving a private vehicle entered the scene, shouting profanities at the bus driver. According to him, bus drivers have lost regard for traffic rules.
Things got intense a few more minutes into the clip, when Guinto started shouting, too. He was enraged by the audacity of the bus driver to be angry.
At this point, the traffic enforcer was demanding for the driver’s license but the bus started moving away. When the driver’s seat was parallel to that of Guinto’s, the bus driver held out a piece of long metal and poked the window of Guinto’s door.
When the bus started moving away, passengers were seen giving ‘the finger’ to Guinto.
