Batangas SP approves ordinance against drag racing
Batangas City (7 December) -- The members of the Sangguinang Panlalawigan (SP) of Batangas Province approved recently the ordinance passed by the Sangguinang Bayan (SB) of Lemery, Batangas that strictly prohibits drag racing in all the main thoroughfares in the municipality of Lemery.
The Committee on Peace, Order and Public Safety with head Board Member Alfredo Corona recommended the approval of the ordinance after a thorough study of the measure which does not violate any law.
Lemery Councilor Juanito dela Rosa sponsored the ordinance that was approved by the SB members in their 15th regular session.
The action of the SB was instigated by reported frequent drag racing activities in the town that disturb the residents. Members of the PNP Traffic Management Group, barangay officials and even barangay tanods may arrest those who defy the ordinance. (PIA Calabarzon)
