Signages ready

  • CTTMO to start erecting signboards for new Speed Limit Ordinance


THE CITY Transport and Traffic Management Office (CTTMO) gears up to install more or less 500 speed limit signages to inform motorists of the changes in speed limit enforcement. 

The CTTMO closely worked with the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) XI to implement City Ordinance No. 0270, series of 2023, also known as  the new “Speed Limit Ordinance in Davao City.”

During the iSpeak forum on Oct. 5, Dionisio Abude, CTTMO chief, said the speed limit signages and pigment road markings will help motorists identify the maximum allowable limit for speed.

Halimbawa, 40-kilometers per hour (kph), nag-end na siya diri going to 60-kph, pinturahan to ang dalan para makabalo ang driver nga approaching na siya sa 60-kph. Medyo ubay-ubay jud siya,” Abude said. 

He said highways such as Bunawan Proper to Lasang Bridge will have 24 signages, Lacson to Marilog-Buda boundary (50 signages), Carabao Monument to Binugao-Sta. Cruz Boundary (40 signages), has an 80-kph for cars/motorcycles, and 50-kph for trucks and buses. 

Meanwhile, Panacan Crossing to Bunawan Proper (50 signages), Lacson to Ulas Crossing (106 signages), Ulas Crossing to Carabao Monument (40 signages), Bangkal Diversion to Panacan Crossing (46 signages), Panacan Crossing to Ma-a (26 signages), Crossing Ma-a to corner Matina Pangi (14 signages), corner Matina Pangi to Bangkal Diversion (6 signages), and Ulas Crossing to Carabao Monument (40 signages), have a 60-kph for cars/motorcycles, and 40-50kph for trucks and buses.

Vehicles that pass through Libby Road, from Puan to Crossing Bayabas (44 signages), will also have a maximum available speed of 40 kph for cars/motorcycles, and 30 kph for trucks and buses. 

Abude said the exact date and time for the implementation of the road speed limits will soon be announced. They will set to meet with the DPWH-XI to iron out some details. 

Dili man pwede na mag-implement ta nga wala pa ta nagbutang og mga signages. I-put up usa nato ang mga signages ug pinturahan usa nato ang mga kalsada, then we will announce kung kanus-a ang petsa ug bulan nga fully implemented na ang atoang city ordinance,” he said. 

Violators may be fined P1,000 for the first offense, P2,000 for the second offense, and P5,000 for subsequent offenses. If fail to resolve their liability within a period of seven days, an additional fine of P500 will be imposed accordingly.
