Tabuk City heightens drive vs minor drivers

TABUK CITY, Kalinga, July 21(PIA) – The City Public Order and Safety Office (POSO) has intensified its campaign against  minor drivers amid reports of high violations.

 

POSO Dionisio P. Falgui III reported their office had recorded 1,911 traffic violators in the city from January-June, mostly minor drivers and driving without license.

This explains why road accident is the top cause in cases of physical injuries in the city police report, Falgui elaborated.

In line with the campaign, mobile check points along the city’s main thoroughfares has  been intensified.

Because of strict traffic regulation enforcement, the POSO had collected P574,350 in penalty fees for the period.

But Falgui stressed collection of penalty fees is just secondary to their mandate of assuring public order and safety.   

We impose penalty because we want drivers to follow proper traffic rules to avoid accidents, he said.   

He appealed to parents to cooperate with the authorities by preventing their minor-children from just going on fun-driving  without the assistance of licensed drivers. (JDP/L-PIA CAR, Kalinga)
