MUNICIPAL ORDINANCE NO. 014-2014


AUTHORIZING THE TRAFFIC LAW ENFORCERS OF THE MUNICIPALITY OF
GUINOBATAN, ALBAY TO DETACH THE TRICYCLE PLATE ISSUED BY THE
MUNICIPALITY FROM THE TRICYCLE UNIT WHOSE DRIVERS CONTINOUSLY
LOAD PASSENGERS NOT FROM THE OFFICIALLY DESIGNATED PARADA/
PARKING AREA.
Proponent/Sponsor:

Councilor Rolando P. Palabrica

WHEREAS, many drivers of tricycle for hire were clamouring that while they
faithfully follow the Parada Ordinance, still many others do not pick-up passengers on
the legitimate parade/parking area;
WHEREAS, this practice by erring drivers put the income of drivers who
religiously park and wait passengers at the officially designated parada at a
disadvantage or losing position thereby earning less or unfairly as compared to those
who engage themselves in a manner called layog-layog;
WHEREAS, it was noted that some drivers deliberately or maliciously violate the
law so that the very purpose of the ordinance to have an orderly parada in Guinobatan
is frustrated;
WHEREAS, to put an end to this unfair and unjust practice of some, withdrawal
of the issued tricycle plates to operate from the violators is perceived to be an effective
means to ensure compliance by all drivers of the mandate of the ordinance.
WHEREFORE, in view of the foregoing premises,
BE IT ORDAINED
ASSEMBLED, THAT:

BY

THE

SANGGUNIANG

BAYAN
