Dasma gov’t steps up campaign vs spitting, urinating in public places

DASMARIÑAS CITY, Cavite, January 11 (PIA) ---The city government is intensifying its drive against unhygienic practices and illegal obstructions as it begins to fine violators to ordinances on spitting and urinating in public, and parking along main roads.

Based on an order by the city government, a penalty of P2,500 will be imposed on those who will be caught erecting structures such as stalls and home extensions, or encroaching on public sidewalks with signages, tables, plants or construction materials. The same fee will be charged to those caught littering, spitting, expelling mucus, urinating on sidewalks within the city.

The city will also implement an ordinance regulating the parking of vehicles along major and national roads particularly General Emilio Aguinaldo Highway and Governor Dominador I. Mangubat Avenue and designated these as towing areas.

The ordinance approved by the Sangguniang Panglunsod was crafted to respond to the need of the public for smooth flow of traffic of which illegal parking on national roads is an obstruction.

The ordinance entails the towing of vehicles parked for display along roads for selling and promotion; those that are being washed and repaired unless in an emergency; lay over or overnight parking of cargo trucks, trailers, dump trucks, buses and other vehicles; parking of junk vehicles, and those that are waiting for passenger pick up.

Violators will be fined a minimum of P500 while towing fees range from P1,000 for small vehicles to a maximum of P5,000 for super heavy motor vehicles. (Dasmariñas PIO/
