Tabuk City POSO installs reflector stickers on ‘kuligligs’

TABUK CITY, Kalinga, Feb. 7(PIA) -- The city Public Order and Safety Office (POSO) has launched massive installation of reflector stickers on the farm machineries in a bid to arrest the increasing cases of night road accidents involving ‘kuligligs’ or farm hand–tractors.

 

City POSO Head Dionisio P. Falgui III informed that the operation had initially covered the four barangays of Nambaran, Lacnog, Agbannawag and Malalao with at least 50 kuliglig trailers.

The stickers are provided free by the city-LGU and are installed in front, rear and sides of the unit visibly seen at night.

In an agri-based locality like Tabuk, trailers powered by kuligligs are a common mode of farm-market transportation among folks.

But since kuligligs, as farm implement, are not covered under any Land Transportation regulation, these often had caused serious road accidents especially at night when they traverse highways without proper lights.

Police reports had shown that some death cases had been recorded from these accidents.

Falgui said the continuing barangay-based operation assures that no kuliglig trailer is missed from the city’s 42 barangays. Larry T. Lopez (JDP/LL-PIA CAR, Kalinga)
