Cavite Provincial Ordinance No. 164 or Unified Vehicular Reduction System (UVRS), also known as Cavite Number Coding Scheme, is still on its dry run phase since January 9, 2017.
The Provincial Government of Cavite continues the conduct of data gathering and analysis for the traffic reduction scheme. It is said that the full implementation of the ordinance will only take effect as soon as the Implementing Rules and Regulation (IRR) has been finalized.
According to source, the vehicles covered may still be amended (i.e., vehicle owner’s presentation of senior citizen ID to exempt them from the coverage). Source also added that there might be bike lanes in response to motorists’ complaints.
Once fully implemented, the ordinance will cover all private cars and vans, motorcycles and trucks in Cavite’s major roads including Aguinaldo Highway (Bacoor to Dasmarinas), Governor’s Drive (Trece Martirez to Carmona), Molino – Salawag -Paliparan Road, Molino Boulevard, and Daang Hari Road. Violators will be fined P300.
On the other hand, there will be exemptions for PUVs, firetrucks, ambulance, military and police vehicles, government vehicles with red plate, commercial/delivery trucks with perishable goods, school service with franchise, vehicles on relief operation, vehicles used in medical emergency.
