My diesel Service utility truck a 4 wheeler was flagged down. My driver called me thru cellphone that they were flagged down. I usually tell my driver to ask the ASBU technician to look at the exhaust pipe while my driver revs on the engine low to high rev, and (technician) see for himself if he still wants to test it since visually there is really very very minimal smoke or non at all and go thru the hassle or just go look for another motorist. It usually works in the Makati ASBU under the Magallanes interchange.

What bugs me is that the Pasig ASBU still wanted to test the vehicle, I told the technician thru cell, that the vehicle was just registered less than a month, and had smoke test exam, with flying colors just above 2 opacity, passing is 5 or 6 I think. The technician was presented with the official receipt, registration, and smoke exam, the technician told me "aanhin ko yan" i exam dapat ito. I told him hindi ba valid ang exam for 2 or 3 months kaka register lang nito. No exam pa din sabi niya. I said ok since I just changed oil,filters, exhaust cleaning, and a recent exam during registration is a little above 2 opacity, I agreed.

Bagsak daw ater the exam, 8.5, I said how can that be? Plates confiscated is the next thing that irritated me.

When the truck arrived at my garage, I asked my driver to rev the engine, there was really no amount of smoke that can fail a smoke test that is visually, anyway I asked my driver to clean the exhaust because that is all we can do since everything has been done less than 20 days ago.

The next day, to claim the plate an exam has to be performed again, test probe inserted, the reading was 9.5.

I was shocked at the news of my driver with the results tumaas pa ngayon!

the tech said ibalik mo na lang bukas yan.

During this exam my driver noticed that a lot of other drivers are on the side commenting wala kang pag asa dito, dapat may naka ipit na isang daan sa gas pedal para pumasa yan.

the next day my driver followed the advice, and the reading is 2 opacity, it passed. then paid the P1350 penalty plus exam, and we got the plate no. back.

The last exam was the real opacity of my vehicle. I had doubts about the Pasig City ASBU motives and apparatus, I was thinking of having a smoke test at the Makati City ASBU, but Pasig City won't accept the clearance from another test center .

From the 9opacity to 2 opacity exam I didn't do anything even clean the exhaust because wala na akong magagawa the exhaust was really very clean just like before the flagdown.

My driver said they flagdown a lot of motorists, I wonder how corrupt is the Pasig ASBU? The machines they use to test seems adjustable to their calibration. They should be investigated and test machines checked!

It's so f*cking sad that we have to think of ways to protect ourselves from the government.

Mula sa pinakamataas na pusisyon ng gobyerno hanggang sa pinakamaliit na naglilingkod sa pamahalaan,
"karamihan" ay corrupt. We have the laws to protect the citizenry, pero ang masaklap dito sa atin,
ang unang una na lumalabag sa batas natin ay mga nakapusisyon na yan...

F*CKING GOVERNMENT, lahat abusado....
