Lol! Lesson for the day, don’t trust a ditz with your personally-autographed “privilege” cards. In the Philippines, it is common for motorists with connections with top military and police officials to have an autographed business card of one of these contacts tucked beside their drivers’ licenses in their wallet so that in the event that they are cited for a traffic violation, the attending police officer would be prompted to exercise “extra courtesy” to the bearer.In the case of FHM Magazine “100% hottie” girl Alyzza Agustin, it was the business card of Philippine National Police Director for Plans Alexander Ignacio.

While most Metro Manila motorists suffer under various “vehicle reduction scheme” ordinances that require that they forego use of their vehicle within certain times on certain days, Agustin seems to enjoy routine immunity from this law, thanks to her “boss”, Police Director Alexander Ignacio.
In this case it’s policeman Alex Ignacio who was caught by the madla this time. Har har![Image sources: Top Gear Philippines Facebook Page and Alyzza Agustin’s Facebook Page.]
