A proposal to install CCTV cameras and GPS tracking systems in public utility vehicles is again pending before Congress.

The author of the bill, Rep. Cesar Sarmiento, told ANC Future Perfect Tech Shorts that the measure is meant to deter crime in buses, taxis, ride-sharing vehicles, school buses and (eventually) even jeepneys. 

A similar bill was proposed years ago, but never prospered into law. 

However, Sarmiento is confident that this time, CCTV cameras and GPS tracking systems will soon become a reality in public PUVs.
