Mayor Pacquiao assists injured motorist, urges road safety

General Santos City Mayor Lorelie Pacquiao on Friday reminded road users, especially the motorists, to pay attention to road courtesy and safety to prevent accidents.

Pacquiao made the appeal after being seen helping a motorist who suffered from a road accident along Purok Maguindanao Highway in Barangay Labangal.

“Mismong si Mayor Lorelie Pacquiao ang tumawag ng rescue team para agad na masaklolohan ang isang motoristang naaksidente,” the city government reported.

The Sangguniang Panlungsod earlier called on traffic authorities and public safety officials to intensify its road safety campaigns, as local lawmakers also expressed alarm over the rising number of road accidents in the city.

In a resolution, City Councilor Elizabeth Bagonoc also pushed for road safety and comprehensive drivers’ education to help prevent road accidents.
