MRT Mishap: Who's To Blame?

How often accident in rail transit does occur?

More than thirty commuters riding on Metro Rail Transit (MRT) suffered injuries and had been brought to a nearby hospital when their train derailed somewhere in Taft Avenue and bumped to a station barrier, the news said.


Sometime in the afternoon of Wednesday, a southbound MRT train which experienced or believed to be "under voltage" failed to run. The driver called the control center and a rescue train was sent off. While it was pushed by a responding train, it overshot the railway and broke through the barrier of the Taft Avenue station, causing injuries to its passengers.

The two drivers involved were Duque and Villacarios. They were experienced rail transit driver for 6 years. Nevertheless, accident did happen.

It was reported that the derailment took place when the coupling that connected the stalled train to the functional train accidentally detached from its secured place and the defective train went off the track and smashed the station barrier.



With this kind of accident, what can you expect from the people? Finger-pointing to the person or persons responsible is common. The PH government is blamed for negligence. Culprit is preempted wherein investigation hasn't been conducted yet.

Anyway, some injured passengers were rushed to hospital. One of the victims, Remigio Dasalla, 61, said he won't no longer sue the MRT administration for his  hospital medical bills were already settled.

Those "good" people wanted President PNoy to dismiss Transportation Secretary Abaya for this rail mishap anew.

Who's to blame?

MRT officials aren't exempted for the criticism, for the blame from the people. Duque and Villacarios, they may be charged for negligence, but they had given their side. They did their best but accident is beyond their control.

The government agency like Metro Rail Transit Holdings (MRTH), Metro Rail Transit Corporation (MRTC), EDSA-MRT3, and Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) couldn't excuse themselves for the blame from the people.

Sub-standard train system could also be the valid issue.

However, in his side, Transportation Secretary Joseph Abaya said his agency was investigating the incidence and In spite of the accident, other running units are still safe.

Take a good look to the following development what the reliable source stated: " MRT3 was built on budget and on schedule. It was fully accepted by foreign experts and the Philippine government in 2000. The trains operated with no major accidents for 12 years under Sumimoto maintenance. Sumimoto and Mitsubishi continually upgraded maintenance procedures. All major accidents happened only in the last 2 years under the PHTRAMS-Vitangcol-linked maintenance groups."

Accident may happen anytime. And it is likely to happen with MRT’s recurring breakdowns and long overdue expansion to cope with the half-million riders that commute daily riding on MRT.

Is blaming the appropriate way to settle the matter in its propriety?
