City grants exemption to nine additional Benguet truckers
by PIO release

Mayor Mauricio Domogan granted the request of cutflower and vegetable truckers for the exemption of additional trucks from the coverage of the city’s Truck Ban while waiting for the amendments to the ordinance.

Domogan said six trucks of vegetable traders and three trucks of cutflower traders will also be exempted from the truck ban from Feb. 9 to 14.

“We understand the plight of our cutflower and vegetable traders who must deliver their products to their markets on time, thus the additional exemptions. Some of the truckers claimed they were not included in the earlier exemption,” Domogan said.

Earlier, the vegetable truckers proposed for the exemption of 10 trucks from the truck ban while the cutflower traders proposed 19 trucks not to be covered by the truck ban from Feb. 9 to 14 or during their delivery of flowers to the Metro Manila markets.

However, Domogan reminded the concerned traders and truckers to police their own ranks to avoid the alleged mass reproduction of the identification cards issued to them.

He warned that the city will cancel their exemption if there are traders and truckers found to be using unauthorized exemption documents.

Domogan and La Trinidad Mayor Romeo Salda met with the concerned traders and truckers on the additional exemption to be granted by the city government to those not included in the initial exemption.

Under the city’s Truck Ban Ordinance, trucks are not allowed to traverse the major roads in the city from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. and from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. daily to address the worsening traffic around the central business district.

The city council is studying the proposed amendments to the Truck Ban after the implementation of the ban was questioned by the affected stakeholders due to its serious negative effect to the business sector of the city.
