TMU Head Ruben Deloso encouraged Panaboans to cooperate and obey existing traffic rules, follow signages, and respect traffic enforcers to help ease the traffic situation in the city.
Moreover, with the bottleneck traffic due to the flyover construction, he encouraged motorists, specifically truckers from Davao and Tagum who have no businesses in Panabo to use the Panabo Coastal Road to lessen the influx of vehicles along the national highway.
In today's radio interview, Deloso shared that since January 2019, 238 citation tickets were already issued, sixty (60) of which are colorum units.
Under the city's Revised Traffic Code, colorum drivers will be penalized: P2500 and 3 months impoundment for the 1st offense; and P5000 and 6months impoundment for the 2nd offense.
In addition, the TMU plans to procure speed guns to effectively implement the speed limit along the national highway. Seminars are also lined up for drivers, operators, and enforcers to keep national and local traffic laws in mind.
Lastly, the public is urged to report traffic violations to Transpubliko hotline numbers to penalize erring motorists.
