CEBU, Philippines —  The Cebu City Transportation Office (CCTO) has reported at least 3,291 traffic violators from February 1 to 15, 2022.

CCTO deputy head for operations Paul Gotiong said this is a combination of violations committed in the city— either clamped vehicles or regular issued citation tickets.

Based on the data, the office was able to impound 227 motorcycles, 17 cars, 10 e-bikes, 12 tricycles, two trucks, 10 trisikad and three trailer trucks while 228 vehicles were clamped.

“Sagad sa mga violators mao nga walay lisensya ug expired ang rehistro,” said CCTO.

Gotiong said on January, they gave a leeway to motorists since there were areas that were not yet fully cleared of the obstructions caused by Typhoon Odette.

He said this is one of the reasons why traffic rules were not fully imposed.

“Right now, since some of our signs are also wala pa ma-fully restored, mas maayo nga if ever they know lang gyud sa road nga no left turn, no entry, mo-careful lang sila kay para iwas sa disgrasya,” said Gotiong.

He added that since illegal parking is rampant nowadays, CCTO advises motorists to properly park their vehicles and be mindful of the signs for them not to be apprehended by the traffic personnel. — GMR (FREEMAN)
