Arce is urging the public to follow the “traffic signs” which the CCTO would place near the cemeteries in the city.

She said that should the public follow the slight changes of the traffic schemes, there would be a smooth flow of traffic on the way to the cemetery.

Hangyo sa kaigsuonan

“Atoa lang hangyo sa atong mga kaigsuonan nga mamisitahay [nga] dili magpataka og park sa ilahang mga sakyanan. Tan-awon ang mga signages kung ‘no parking’ no parking,” Arce said.

(Our request to our brothers who would visit the cemeteries not to park their vehicles anywhere. Look at the signages that if it’s ‘no parking,’ then its no parking.)
