Clamping imposed along viral 'food package' site
"Actually gisita ra gyud nato aron ma control ang mga tawo since we are also on MECQ (Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine). Ang naka-clamped kay usa ra nga nagpabilin," said Paul Gotiong, CTTO deputy head for operations.

CEBU, Philippines —  The Cebu City Transportation Office (CTTO) personnel have responded to report of traffic congestion at the site of the viral “unpaid food package” along the Transcentral Highway in Babag, Cebu City.

In a photo posted on CTTO's page Tuesday, a green multicab can be seen clamped in front of the trending property.

"Actually gisita ra gyud nato aron ma control ang mga tawo since we are also on MECQ (Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine). Ang naka-clamped kay usa ra nga nagpabilin," said Paul Gotiong, CTTO deputy head for operations.

The clamped vehicle was already settled within the day. And the CTTO hopes that it will serve as a warning for people to avoid gathering and causing obstruction, as compliance to policies and to avoid accidents.

"We do not condemn people from going to places. Ang sa amo lang is to follow our minimum health protocols, unya dili lang magpataka og park nga maka obstruct sa atong kadalanan," said Gotiong.

As for the month of July, the CTTO has issued a total of 9,646 citation tickets of which 636 were for clamped vehicles. At least 248 motorcycles, 10 e-bikes, one truck, three private cars and one trailer were impounded.

A total of 54 cases were also filed in court against those who have failed to settle their violations.

"Once issued a traffic citation ticket, you have 72-hours or two working days to settle. If no settlement, then it will be subject for a case filed for not paying the fine," said Gotiong.

Common violations committed were disregarding traffic signs, lack of registration, and no license, among others.

Apprehended motorists are advised to settle their violations at CTTO's office located on the second floor of Ramos Public Market, which is open on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. — Sly Anthonette E. Baseo and Dianah Rule D. Salinguhay, CNU Comm Interns, GMR (FREEMAN)
