Public hearing set on truck ban, towing
by Aileen P. Refuerzo / PIO

A public hearing on the proposed amendments to Ordinance 5 s. 2017 or the Truck Ban Ordinance has been scheduled on June 20, 9 a.m. at the Sangguniang Panlungsod session hall.

The proposed amendments were culled from the recommendations of Mayor Mauricio Domogan and Vice Mayor Edison Bilog who proposed an amendatory measure imposing exemptions to some affected delivery trucks out of necessity.

The revisions were consolidated in a proposed amendatory ordinance introduced by the committee on public utilities, transportation and traffic legislation headed by Councilor Benny Bomogao.

“The city council deems it necessary to provide a regulated exemption to trucks loading perishable goods, mineral ores, those used in the implementation government projects and water delivery trucks.  There is also a need to amend the references of the truck ban to maximize the use of the circumferential roads,” the proponents noted.

As proposed, the gross weight capacity of the vehicles, trailers, dump, and other freight truck subject of the regulation will be changed from 4,500 kgs or more to more than 4,500 kgs while the ban’s locational coverage was also modified.

The amended Section 2 of Ordinance 5 s. 2017 bans heavy equipment vehicles, trailers, dump, and other freight trucks with gross weight capacity of more than 4,500 kg. from entering, traversing, parking, loading, unloading, or passing through specified roads in the City of Baguio from 6 to 9 a.m. and 4 to 9 p.m.”

Express exemption is proposed to be granted to water delivery trucks while conditional exemption which can be obtained upon application and presentation of justifiable reason and upon payment of fees will be granted to trucks loading perishable goods such as vegetables and cutflowers and trucks loading mineral ores (exemption shall be valid for one year and effective only when trucks are actually loaded) and trucks used to carry out or implement government projects (the exemption shall be effective only within the project’s duration.)

Also included in the public hearing is the proposed towing ordinance, which aims for a regulated towing system of damaged, abandoned, immobilized, illegally parked, or disabled motor vehicles on right-of-way or on private or public property within the city’s streets.
