The video shows a traffic jam along the diversion road in La Union. It turned out that one of the causes of the heavy traffic was a van counterflowing on the road.
The van driver then tried to cut off the car behind him in order to get back to his proper lane. However, the car he was trying to overtake was a police car.
The police car then made a full stop to block the van’s path. An angry policeman stepped off the car and apprehended the driver.
Many netizens urged motorists to stop counterflowing even if there is heavy traffic.
“Wag na kasi mag counterflow, malas mo lang Patrol mobile pa ang siningitan mo pa,” the netizen who shared the video posted.
(Stop counterflowing. This driver is unlucky because he tried to overtake a patrol car.)
Other social media users also urged others not to judge the van driver too quickly because there might be a reason why he was counterflowing.
“Kung may emergency na pasyente yan makakalusot pero kung talagang walang valid reason, yari siya,” a social media user explained.
(If there is a medical emergency, he might be let go. But he’ll be penalized if there was no valid reason.)
