Talisay To Implement Traffic Code

TALISAY CITY, Cebu - To address the worsening traffic situation in the city, the Talisay City government will soon implement its new traffic code.

The city government is currently conducting a massive information drive to inform the public about the new traffic code.

Vice Mayor Alan Bucao, chairman of the City of Talisay-Traffic Operation Development Authority (CT-TODA) said the new traffic code will improve the traffic situation in the city.

Bucao said the local traffic code of Talisay was already approved by Mayor Socrates Fernandez last year. He said they are just waiting for the printing of the citation tickets to be completed before its implementation.

The city and traffic officials are optimistic that strict enforcement of the new traffic code will not only lessen traffic violations but road accidents as well.

Under the new traffic code, the city's traffic enforcers will now be issuing citation tickets to traffic violators. Bucao said the city government will be collecting corresponding fines ranging from P1,000 to P5,000 depending on the gravity of the violation.

At present, traffic enforcers are using the Temporary Operator's Permit (TOP) issued by the Land Transportation Office. Bucao said the city government is not earning from traffic violations in the past because the penalties directly go to the national treasury.

Under the new traffic code, some roads within the city have been designated as one-way. There will also be truck ban in some roads.
