Wazzup Pilipinas!

With the renewed initiatives of the Inter-Agency Council on Traffic (I-ACT), Department of Transportation (DOTr) Secretary Arthur Tugade has ordered intensified anti-illegal parking operations to further ease traffic conditions.

The transportation chief instructed Undersecretary for Road Transport and Infrastructure Thomas Orbos to double their efforts in clearing sidewalks and major thoroughfares of obstructions, including illegally parked vehicles and structures.

Undersecretary Orbos, who is also concurrent Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) General Manager, heads the reinvigorated I-ACT.

During the All Saints’ Day/ All Souls’ Days break, the members of I-ACT’s Task Force Alamid cleared several roads and sidewalks in Pasay City and Baclaran area of illegally-parked vehicles for unobstructed movement of pedestrians and motorists.

From September 7 - 29, the I-ACT composite team apprehended a total of 465 traffic violators and impounded 166 illegally parked and colorum vehicles along Commonwealth Avenue, Pasay City, Marcos Highway and P. Tuazon Avenue.

Meanwhile, TF Alamid arrested a total of 394 traffic violators and impounded 37 illegally parked and colorum vehicles from October 19 to November 3 along roads in Paranaque, Pasay, Mandaluyong, Caloocan, Quezon City and Pasig.

The DOTr also mobilized personnel of its Office of Commuter Affairs, headed by Assistant Secretary Elvira Medina, to further beef up its force multipliers tasked to assist TF Alamid in its clearing operations in the metropolis.

Undersecretary Orbos also expressed optimism that I-ACT would achieve its objectives of improving the traffic situation with the cooperation of all the stakeholders, not just in Metro Manila, but also in the adjacent provinces of Rizal, Bulacan, Cavite and Laguna. 

Aside from the DOTr, other members of the I-ACT include MMDA, Land Transportation Office, Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board, and the Philippine National Police-Highway Patrol Group.

I-ACT has new member-agencies, including the Armed Forces of the Philippines, the local government units through the Metro Manila Council (MMC), and the Liga ng mga Barangay ng Pilipinas. MMC is the policy-making body of MMDA.

  1. How could we be so dumb to believe in a superstition made up by our ancestors with their little knowledge of reality so they can scare off their little kids to go early to bed and keep doing good.
