Carless day for clean air in city edict mulled
by Gaby B. Keith and Denver Ebba

The city council passed on first reading a proposed ordinance that will penalize car owners who will traverse Session Road.

To be known as “Carless Day Ordinance in the City of Baguio,” the measure authored by councilor Leandro Yangot, Jr., seeks to avert pollution, among other purposes, at the city’s main thoroughfare and the city’s air quality.

The proposed measure cited as basis the Constitutional provision that emphasizes that the State shall protect and promote the right to health of the people, instill health consciousness among them, and advance their right to a balanced and healthy ecology.

The ordinance prohibits all vehicles from traversing Session Road starting from the area fronting the Bank of the Philippine Islands-Session and Post Office.

In cases of emergency or events involving threats to lives and properties, police cars, fire trucks, emergency service vehicles, ambulances, and the like may enter the zone.

Violators will be fined P1,000 on first offense; P3,000 or imprisonment of not more than three months but not less than one month, or both fine and imprisonment, at the discretion of the court on second offense; and P5000 or imprisonment of not more than six months but not less than three months, or both fine and imprisonment, at the discretion of the court on third offense.

If the violation is committed by a business establishment, the owner/operator or the person acting in his/her behalf shall be held liable.

“The permit of the business establishment shall be cancelled by the City Mayor on third offense,” the measure added.
