BY CARLA GOMEZ
Security concerns were raised yesterday over the safety of the 10.12-kilometer Bacolod Silay Airport Access Road at night after vehicles passing the Talisay stretch were stoned by unidentified persons Sunday night.
The police and the highway patrol group began patrolling, starting last night, the BSAAR to prevent an escalation of the problem, Senior Supt. Milko Lirazan, acting Negros Occidental police director, said.
Bacolod Rep. Evelio Leonardia, senior vice chairman of the House Committee on Transportation and a personal friend of one of the victims, brought the matter to the attention of Lirazan and Supt. Arnie Cuaresma, Highway Patrol Group chief, who assured him that they will take action.
