BEA CUPIN, GMA News 05/20/2011 | 12:33 AM

Speeding bus drivers and wayward pedestrians aren’t the only people motorists have to worry about on the road.

According to GMA News’ “24 Oras,” gangs composed of children roaming the streets also pose a threat to motorists in Makati.

The children called “batang hamog,” are known to attack vehicles stuck in traffic.

On Tuesday, Makati police apprehended several children aged 7-12 who are part of the street gang.

They were not jailed. They were instead turned over to the Department of Social Welfare and Development because there were minors.

The group’s modus operandi consist of sending a member to knock on the window of an unsuspecting driver while another child opens the car door on the other side, according to the report.

Watch the video here.

The group operates in Makati now but can branch out anytime. Let us all be careful.
