·1 min read

THE Cebu City Transportation Office (CCTO) will confiscate passenger electric tricycles (e-trikes) plying in the city's main roads.

Jounald Bautista, mobile section team leader of CCTO, said in an interview with SunStar that they would strictly apprehend e-tricycle drivers who would be plying on the major thoroughfares following an incident last Monday, August 1, 2022, wherein a Toyota Grandia van hit an e-tricycle that was about to turn left along the intersection of M.J. Cuenco Avenue and T. Padilla Street.

Killed in the incident was the e-trike’s driver, Generoso Rosas Paca, 61, of Barangay Ermita, and his passenger Felipa Alicos Maurin, 68.

The CCTO has two Task Force E-Bike teams that will be assigned in the morning and the other in the evening to apprehend erring e-trike drivers.

Meanwhile, a complaint is set to be filed by the Parian police at the Cebu City Fiscal's Office on Friday, August 5, against Alberto Mobe Andon, 47, of Sitio Kalumbuyan, Barangay Buhisan, Cebu City, the driver of Grandia van (SLD 570) involved in the accident.

Andon was gaining speed as he crossed the intersection on a go signal when he hit the e-trike that was about to turn left, killing Paca and Maurin. (BBT, TPT)
