Cebu City traffic enforcers receive high visibility clothing

THE chairman of the board of directors of the Cebu City Transportation Office (CCTO) has donated 50 articles of high visibility clothing that traffic enforcers can wear when it’s raining.

According to Rico Rey Francis “Koko” Holganza, the clothing will protect traffic enforcers from the rain and also make them easier to spot by motorists during rainy weather.

They won’t have any reason to take shelter and they can continue to do their job safely, said Holganza.

The purpose of high visibility clothing is “to provide visibility of the person wearing it in low day light or in the dark when illuminated by headlights of vehicles and mechanized equipment.”

The high visibility clothing consists of a jacket and a pair of pants and is similar to what traffic enforcers in the United States wear.

It’s mainly yellow in color with a little back and it has a reflector.

Holganza said that apart from his donation, he hopes that city officials will also buy high visibility clothing for their CCTO personnel.

Holganza said the high visibility clothing would be a great help to their enforcers so that they can continue manning the streets even during unusual weather. (PAC / PJB)
