How's My Driving?

I noticed this phrase in most buses and delivery trucks or vehicles. They are asking how you think they drive. Land Transportation and Franchising Regulatory Board (LTFRB) contact numbers are also given where they can send their reports. In spite of this, there are still lot of reckless drivers around especially those handling metro buses. One of them is the SANTRANS that travels from San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan to Sta. Cruz, Manila. Some other were those mini-bus that travels from Bulacan to Divisoria.

I admire the LTFRB for having this campaign but there are some questions running in my mind about this.

Do you think this is effective? Are those drivers aware that there are some concerned citizens that will report on how they drive? Do LTFRB receive complaints in their hotlines? Are there drivers and operators being investigated about these reckless driving reports?
