April 22, June 5 to bet set as Carless Days
by PIO release

Motor vehicles will be barred from roaming around the city once a proposed designating April 22 and June 5 as Carless Days is passed.

Councilor Elaine D. Sembrano said the implementation of Carless Days shall cover all roads in the city.

The proposal provides that every April 22 and June 5, no motor vehicles, or fossil fuel-powered transport vehicles shall ply the city’s roads from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Sembrano said residents and tourists will be compelled to walk or use non-motorized transport vehicles such as bicycles during the designated Carless Days.

A team to be composed of the members of the Baguio City Police Office, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, and the City Environment and Parks Management Office shall be tasked to strictly implement the provisions of the proposed measure.

However, police vehicles, fire trucks, ambulances, and disaster response team vehicles used in the performance of their assigned duties and responsibilities shall be exempt from the implementation of the proposed measure.

Any person found to have violated the measure shall be meted the penalty of at least five hours of environment and sanitation community work if apprehended within the central business district or  by the punong barangay where the person resides or has been apprehended.

Sembrano said that climate change is a reality that needs to be confronted by every nation to abate its adverse effects.

Sembrano said the observance of Earth Day every April 22 and the World Environment Day every June 5 are reminders of the role of each citizen towards the maintenance of a sustainable and livable world for human kind, thus, the implementation of the Carless Days on said dates would be most fitting.

She added international, national, and local laws and policies are crafted and approved around the world in response to the need to strictly implement timely and realistic measures to mitigate the negative impacts of climate change and other forms of environmental disturbances.

In consonance with the policy and operative principles provided for in Ordinance 18, s. 2016 or the Environment Code of the City of Baguio, Sembrano said there is a need to institute concrete measures to emphasize the serious and encompassing concern of the local government relative to the preservation and protection of the environment and its people.
