Naga City ordinance promotes eco-friendly vehicles

by Lizel S. Macatangay

NAGA CITY, Jan. 11 (PIA) -- Eco-friendly, and noise and air pollution-free vehicles which means less-tainted air that will produce a healthy atmosphere this are the bases of City Ordinance No. 2011-065 which allows the operation of e-trikes in this city.

The legislation aims to provide the community with an alternative means of transport that will promote, among others, a less polluted setting and for the drivers and operators to have an opportunity to earn a higher and complementary source of income.

Since the said vehicles will be using electric charges and not the conventional gasoline or fuel, the said ordinance also specifies that charging stations will be established in strategic public places within the city outskirts. Designated parking areas shall also be decided by the office of mayor John Bongat through the Public Safety Office, manned by PSO Chief Lito Del Rosario.

Just recently, Bongat received 10) electric bikes or e-bikes courtesy of the Climate Change Program of the United Nations, making the City of Naga the first municipality to be a recipient of the said vehicles, free of cost. The vehicles will be used by selected departments to deliver the basic services being offered by the city to its constituents.

The said e-trike operation is only limited within the bounds and territorial jurisdiction of Naga City . A total of 1,600 electric driven vehicles are expected to ply the city routes once the said program become fully operational.

The ordinance was authored by City Councilors Nelson Legacion, Esteban Abonal, Joaquin Perez Jr., Alex Nero, and Raoul Rosales. (MAL/LSM, PIA-Camarines Sur)
