DAVAO CITY, Philippines — Traffic enforcers here are flexing their muscles to prepare for a stricter measure against violators of the city’s traffic code.
The City Transport and Traffic Management Office on Wednesday started training 400 personnel for the work, and more than half of this number, or 250, would eventually handle the.enforcement of citation tickets against violators, said CTTMO Chief Dionesio Abude in a telephone interview.
The traffic enforcers who were trained will also take an exam to determine who among them would qualify for enforcement duties.
Abude admitted that number is not enough to cover the whole city. At present, the city has only 90 deputized enforcers from the Land Transportation Office.
He added that handing out citation tickets to violators will make the public think twice before parking illegally or crossing the street.
“We want a discipline in our streets. With fewer violations, our streets will also be more orderly,” Abude said.(davaotoday.com)
