On the city’s Anti–Road Obstruction Ordinance
NAME WITHHELD, Baguio City

It’s amazing to hear news regarding the Anti-Road Obstruction Ordinance being implemented by the city government through the barangay officials. But ningas kogon  din pala ang mga barangay official.

I am not saying that all of them are culprits. I was issued citation tickets two times for parking at a no parking zone at the vicinity of Baguio General Hospital. I parked my vehicle thinking the area is safe for parking since there was no sign around.

But as a law-abiding citizen, I went to pay the fine at the Traffic Management Branch along Session Road.

Going back to my point, if this ordinance is for real, deputized barangay personnel should really be strict in implementing this. Based on what I have learned, the Anti-Road Obstruction Ordinance depends on barangay ordinances.

I understand that barangay officials play a critical role in the implementation of this ordinance. They are the ones who will get the ire of residents who park on barangay roads, but no matter what, they should still implement the law. It is really a very bad precedent if residents do not respect their barangay officials. Residents should strictly follow barangay ordinances.

Ti barangay roads saan nga paradaan. I know that barangay officials know this ruling. The problem really depends on political will.

Barangay officials has the mandate to implement whatever is agreed in the barangay. They will be appreciated more if they implement their mandate dutifully.
