Nueva Vizcaya town mulls ban on lowered tricycle sidecars

by Ben Moses Ebreo

Solano, Nueva Vizcaya (September 8) -- Alarmed with the increasing proliferation and fabrication of lowered tricycle sidecars in this town, the municipal board here is contemplating to ban these sidecars for the general welfare of the public.

Municipal councilor Roland Carub, chair of the Sangguniang Bayan?s Committee on Good Government and Legal Affairs said he is proposing an ordinance banning and / or prohibiting lowered tricycle sidecars operating or plying within this town and to penalize violators.

"I have been a victim of discomfort and inconvenience aside from receiving similar complaints from passengers pointing on these fabricated tricycle sidecars," Carub said.

He said that while tricycles remain as a major transport tool among villagers in local government units, particularly among students and government employees among others due to their high accessibility, availability, affordability, comfort and convenience, accidents have been rampant due to recklessness and miscalculations due to the decreasing size of their sidecars.

"While tricycles have never been a subject of roadworthiness evaluation or assessment by concerned agencies, nor standards been set for sidecars, majority of the units observed are under appropriate normal specifications, undersized, inconvenient and uncomfortable to ride among passengers specially during the onset of the rainy season," Carub explained.

He said there is a need to prohibit the fabrication of lowered tricycle sidecars since these endanger the lives and limbs of the riding public.

The proposed penalties, Carub added are P500.00 for the first offense, P1,000.00 for the second offense, P2,500.00 for the third offense and the revocation of business permit and license to operate and permanent closure of the establishment on the succeeding offenses.

According to Carub however, a sectoral public hearing will also be done to gather more inputs from the affected sectors to enhance the provisions of the proposed ordinance. (PIA NVizcaya) [top]
