MANDAUE CITY, Philippines – Mandaue City is now ready for the actual validation by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) on the city’s road clearing operations this February 23, 2021.

On Tuesday, February 16, the DILG Mandaue, Mandaue City Enforcement Unit (MCEU), and the Traffic Enforcement Agency of Mandaue (TEAM) conducted an initial assessment on the city’s roads in preparation for the actual DILG evaluation.

They conducted the dry run evaluation on the eight barangays namely Centro, Guizo, Mantuyong, Ibabao, Tipolo, Alang-Alang, Cambaro, and Umapad.

JohnJoan Mende, the new director of DILG here said that though there are few obstructions, like trees, illegally parked vehicles, vulcanizing shops, among others, overall the city’s roads are now prepared for the actual evaluation.

“Initially, I am very much impressed how Mandaue has done it, I think Mandaue has done a great deal in changing sa atong sidewalk and road clearing nato, Mandaue is doing great sa pag road clearing nato,” said Mende.

Mende said these are the routes in the clearing operation the city suggests but the evaluator may also want some roads to evaluate.

The DILG’s evaluation will be between February 16 and March 2.

Mende said that evaluators from DILG-Cebu City will evaluate Mandaue City’s roads and its clearing operations.

Ernesto Bongo, MCEU operations head, said as most of the obstructions found on the city’s roads are illegally parked vehicles, the MCEU and the TEAM will strictly implement the city’s ordinance about the matter.

The penalty fee for obstruction, obstructing the passage of another vehicle by discharging passengers is P500, P1,000 for illegal parking, and P1,000 for unattended vehicles. However, Bongo said that first time, violators will be apprehended and warned but for the second time offenders, the driver will need to pay for his traffic violations.

” So far naa pa gyapon ato’ng come and go nga parkings, dili gyud nato macontrol, nagpabadlong gyud mao na nagpadayun lang gyud mi, sige mi kada adlaw, sa matag karun ug unya dili gyud nato biyaan ang pag edukar sa ato’ng motorista kabahin sa ato’ng sidewalk nga dili gyud abusuhan kay naa man say mugamit nga pedestrian. Aron safety ug luwas ang ila’ng tagsa-tagsa kaugalingon,” said Bongo. /rcg
