CEBU CITY – The Cebu City Traffic Operations Management said it will begin impounding vehicles violating traffic rules, particularly those caught counter-flowing traffic here.
Francisco Ouano, chief of the Cebu City Traffic Operations Management, said they already formed mobile teams just for the purpose of apprehending violators of this newly-approved Executive Order (EO) of Mayor Tomas Osmeña.
“We will surely impound any vehicles, including motorcycles, caught counter-flowing the traffic in the city,” Ouano said. “The mayor said this is one way to discipline those motorists who cause traffic congestion because of their counter flowing.”
Osmeña signed the EO last week allowing traffic enforcers to impound for a month vehicles caught counter-flowing. “I just don’t want people to be abusing. There are several drivers who counter-flow and we are going to be very strict with these violators,” he said.
Violators of the EO will not only get his vehicle impounded but will also lose his driver’s license aside from paying a fine. Under the EO, motorcycle drivers using the sidewalks will also be apprehended.(Luel Galarpe)
