Is the Anti-illegal Parking Operation the Solution to Cavite Traffic?

The Inter-Agency Council on Traffic (I-ACT), together with the Department of Transportation (DOTr), has made further actions to strengthen the anti-illegal parking operations in Manila. This renewed initiative aims to lessen the traffic by ridding the illegally parked vehicles on sidewalks that cause congestion, especially on high foot traffic grounds.

During All Saint’s Day, several roads of Pasay City and Baclaran area have been cleared of vendors and illegally parked cars in line with the mission of the I-ACT campaign.

The traffic situation is anticipated to lighten up through the proper implementation of I-ACT and the cooperation of all its stakeholders. Working on this campaign with DOTr are Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA), Land Transportation Office (LTO), Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB), and the Philippine National Police-Highway Patrol Group (HPG). Aside from Manila, the neighboring provinces Cavite, Laguna, Rizal and Bulacan are also encouraged to have the same outlook towards road discipline.

The I-ACT is a project launched by MMDA to serve as an agency that will manage traffic system and provide an avenue for pedestrians and motorists alike to report road problems within the metro.

In the province of Cavite, the provincial government is also stepping up in re-establishing road orderliness by the number coding scheme which takes full effect in 2018. Upon the official announcement of its effectivity date, many netizens criticized the latest ordinance and expressed their views concerning road problems through the GoCavite Facebook page.

Among the many suggestions to address road obstruction in Cavite, majority of netizens agreed that tricycles passing on main roads, illegally parked vehicles on the sidewalk, non-utilization of overpass and pedestrian lanes, non-observance of designated areas for unloading/loading PUV passengers, and the “buhos” system are among the top issues that the Cavite government needs to take a look into.

    Inspite of the complaints made by netizens, the City Government of Bacoor is turning a deaf ear to the illegally park dump trucks along Bacoor Boulevard near McDonalds Talaba. We hope that the provincial government of cavite can address this matter immediately. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10211192705478788&set=gm.1411092525641914&type=3&theater&ifg=1

    The real poblem why traffic in Cavite is horrible because of lack of discipline and road courtesy of many drivers. The local government should initiate traffic rules education to enforcers and drivers alike. Make use of barangay officials to enforce traffic in their areas. The overpass being constructed along centenial raod is a chaoes. Abusive drivers are bullying co-drivers patiently in line.
