Just pay the cop
Comment from a reader on SCTEX corruption: Have you ever seen an overloaded truck at the SBMA Tipo inspection point offloaded. In all the years the SCTEX has been open, I have never seen even a single truck offloaded. Just ask any of the truck drivers what happens when they are overweight. They laugh and say "Just pay the cop." So add thousands of overloaded trucks on top of already substandard materials used in the construction of roads and bridges and the result is predictable. Corruption and dishonesty are the way of life here. Potholes almost as big as some cars are commonplace at SBFZ, especially where the trucks go. Every year this once beautiful refuge is looking more and more like an Olongapo junkyard.
