PNP appeals to drivers to observe traffic laws, impose self discipline

by Joseph B Zambarano

Baguio City (25 September) -- Traffic violators in the city are averaging 230 a day translating to P30,000 collection in fines for the City Treasury, according to the Baguio City Police Office-Traffic Management Group.

P/Supt. Engelbert Soriano, Chief Traffic Officer, said the number one violation committed by motorist is illegal parking or obstruction, followed by non observance of traffic regulations and the number coding system.

Most drivers defy the traffic laws in the Central Business District (CBD) especially along Session Road, Harrison Road, Mabini, Gen. Luna, Calderon Street and Lake Drive, Soriano said.

He also disclosed that public transport drivers disobey the wearing of uniform and seatbelt or their jeepneys or taxis are smoke belchers. The private motorists, on the other hand usually disregard the no-parking signages.

Soriano appealed to all motorist to observe traffic laws and impose self discipline in order to have smooth traffic flow in the city.

The various jeepney and taxi association should police their own rank and impose sanctions to their members who are perennial violators, Soriano added.

Meanwhile, Soariano said traffic along Magsaysay Road greatly improved when Mayor Mauricio Domogan approved the use of Bokawkan Road for La Trinidad jeepneys.

The rerouting scheme is on experimental basis adopted by city officials towards improving the flow of traffic, he said. (PIA) [top]
