P17 M raised from traffic
by PIO release

The local government collected close to P17 million from the apprehensions done by traffic enforcers and barangay officials on traffic rule violations from January to November this year.

C/Insp. Oliver Panabang, chief of the Baguio City Police office’s Traffic Management Branch, said for the first 11 months of the year, traffic enforcers apprehended 41,483 violators that translated to over P11.45M in fines paid by the motorists to the City Treasury Office.

On the implementation of the local government’s anti-road obstruction policy, barangay officials made some apprehended 5,479 individuals translated to the payment of nearly P870,000.

“We continue to strictly implement our traffic and obstruction rules and regulations even with a depleted manpower because it is our job to make our roads safe for both motorists and pedestrians,” Panabang said.

He underscored the importance of the consistency of deputized barangay officials in the implementation of the city’s anti-road obstruction policy to help clear city and barangay roads from obstructions, especially the illegally parked motor vehicles.

Under the anti-road obstruction policy of the local government, barangays get a share from the fines paid by erring motorists that are often credited to the income of the barangays for budgeting purposes in the next fiscal year.

However, Panabang admitted that there are still numerous motorists who have not settled their fines with the City Treasury Office which is why there are still license plate numbers of motor vehicles kept in the BCPO-TMB office and some barangays.

He said because of the increasing number of motor vehicles, there is also an increase in the number of violators of traffic rules and regulations aside from the increase in the number of illegally parked motor vehicles.

Panabang urged motorists to observe discipline when travelling and for drivers to learn to upgrade their skills in navigating the city’s mountain roads to prevent the occurrence of accidents.

He said that the installation of numerous traffic signages in various roads is useless if motorists do not adhere to advisories.
