Drunks to be barred in PUVs
by Gaby B. Keith / PIO

Drunk passengers will soon be prohibited from boarding any public utility vehicle in Baguio.

Councilors Joel Alangsab and Benny Bomogao proposed an ordinance that will not allow drunk persons to board PUVs operating within the territorial jurisdiction of Baguio. 

The measure defines a drunk person as someone whose physical and mental faculties are impaired by an excess of alcoholic drink that may be characterized by acting unruly, rowdy, disorderly, wild, irrational, and violent due to lack or diminution of self-control.

The councilors said the proposed ordinance provides and promotes safety or protection to passengers against unscrupulous, undisciplined, and bully passengers.

It calls for operators, drivers, driver’s associations, bus companies, barkers, and conductors of PUVs operating within the territorial jurisdiction of Baguio to not allow any person who is drunk to board their vehicles.

If they willfully allow such, then they will be penalized with a P500 fine for the first offense; P1,000 for the second offense; and P3,000 for the third offense. Subsequent offenses will incur a penalty of P5,000 or imprisonment for a period not exceeding six months or both at the discretion of the court.

A passenger barred but who insist on boarding shall be reported immediately to any police officer or deputized agents.  In case boarding was done without fault of the driver, barker or conductor, the driver has the duty to bring the drunk passenger to the nearest police station.
