CTTMO to regulate, properly mark tricycles by route, area


THE CITY Transport and Traffic Management Office (CTTMO) is finalizing regulations for the possible added identification markings for tricycles. 

The office is also working on the amendment to the Traffic Code to increase the penalty for violation of illegal parking by large vehicles.

CTTMO Head Dionisio Abude, in a media interview Monday, said they found the necessity to put markings on vehicles applying for MTOP.

Kung unsa ang nakabutang sa kilid kilid mao pud ang nakabutang sa atop, dapat naa gyud sila’y number sa taas para ma capture sa CCTV (The number reflected at the side of the tricycle will also be placed at the top of the vehicle so that it can be captured by the CCTV),” Abude said, adding that this scheme will be done for easier identification of vehicles, their location and driver/operator.

The rule was proposed in the wake of the rape-slay in Calinan involving an ombac (yellow tricycle).

Ma-identify nato diretso kung taga asa siya and makita gani ang number kung kinsa siya (We will directly identify where the vehicle is registered and we can also check the number to check ownership),” Abude said.

Meanwhile, Abude said that they would impose a uniform-sized and unique code based on each area, and the number would be based on the list provided by the Motorized Vehicle Franchising and Regulatory Division (MVRD).

The visible identification marks will soon become a requirement for every tricycle, and the MVFRD is joining barangay caravans to announce this development.

He added that the MVFRD is also studying to limit the approval of vehicles according to the number of vehicles needed by passengers in a specific area and prioritize the approval of those with complete documents that are road-worthy.

Kadtong mga complete mao to ang number one sa priority hangtod muabot sa number needed (Those which have complete documents will be prioritized until the needed number is reached),” he said.

On the other hand, Abude also said that their office already to lobbied the Sannguniang Panlungsod for the amendment to the Comprehensive Traffic Code to increase the illegal parking of big trucks from P500- P5,000.

He said violators, particularly trailers, wing vans, and dump trucks – left on the highway without early warning devices can cause accidents involving other vehicles. He said the increased fees would serve as a deterrent.

Gi-refer na nako ni sa City Legal and naa na ni karon sa City Council (I already referred this matter to the City Legal and it is now at the level of the City Council),” Abude said.
