OFFICIALS of the Cebu City Transportation Office (CCTO) urged motorists to follow traffic rules to avoid accidents similar to what happened at the Cebu South Coastal Road (CSCR) on Monday evening, May 2, 2022.

Paul Gotiong, CCTO’s deputy head for operations and spokesperson told SunStar Cebu Tuesday, May 3, said that accidents happen when vehicles overspeed and change lanes without signaling.

Gotiong stressed that overspeeding and changing lanes in all bridges and flyovers are strictly prohibited.

The accident on Monday, which happened at the viaduct of the CSCR, involved a truck and an Asian utility vehicle (AUV), said Gotiong.

Gotiong added that no serious injuries were sustained by the drivers and passengers of both vehicles.

In a separate interview, Quennie Bronce, reputation enhancement manager of Visayan Electric Company, said that some streetlights at the CSCR are currently busted though the electrical connection there remains normal.

Bronce said that the city government is responsible for the repairs of streetlights along CSCR.

According to Gotiong, in the event that street lights are non-functional, motorists should turn on their headlights to be able to navigate the road safely. (IRT)
