In fact, one netizen saw Duterte driving a Holiday Taxi back in 2013.

This could have been the inspiration why a Facebook page called “Duterte for Change” claimed that Duterte, now the President of the Philippines, rode on his motorbike to visit Muntinlupa and check the traffic situation himself. The same Facebook post also said that the President even asked the city mayor, Jaime Fresnedi, to clear the vendors off the streets to relieve the traffic at the Muntinlupa market.
