Under the headship of Governor Jesus Crispin Remulla, the number coding scheme in Cavite will take full effect in January 2018.
It was the First District Board Member Gilbert Villanueva Gandia who urged to have the number coding rules and regulations so to control the traffic flow in Cavite.
After the public consultation, the amended Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRRs) on the number coding scheme have been signed by provincial officials.
The vehicles covered by the number coding system are private cars, vans, and trucks. Meanwhile, trucks with PEZA (Philippine Economic Zone Authority) registration and stickers are excluded from the implementation. Motorcycles are no longer affected by the revised number coding system.
The roads covered by the number coding system are the following:
- Aguinaldo Highway (the stretch from Bacoor to Dasmariñas-Silang boundary)
- Governor’s Drive (from Carmona to Trece Martires City-Tanza boundary)
- Molino-Salawag-Paliparan Road (from Zapote, Bacoor, to Paliparan, Dasmarinas)
- Molino Boulevard (from Aguinaldo Highway to Molino-Salawag-Paliparan Road).
Once fully implemented, the number coding will be determined on the last digit of license plates or conduction stickers, from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. from Monday to Friday.
There will be “window hours” set from 10:01 a.m. to 2:59 p.m.
The number coding scheme started its dry run phase on January 2017. Previously, it was planned to have been implemented on February 2017.
