Tacloban LGU reminds vendors to comply with designated selling areas

Tacloban LGU enforces road-clearing operations and reminds vendors to comply with designated selling areas to maintain order and public safety.

TACLOBAN CITY – To maintain order and clear the streets of obstructions, the Tacloban City Local Government Unit (LGU) continues to remind vendors to conduct their businesses in designated areas. 

The Traffic Operation Management Enforcement and Control Office (TOMECO)'s Traffic Engineering Team has been diligently overseeing clearing operations and ensuring that vendors comply with the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) MC 2020-027, or the Road Clearing Operations directive.

On May 1, the team conducted an operation to remove vendors who were found to have set up their stalls in a waiting shed in front of Gaisano Central along Justice Romualdez Street. 

Despite previous warnings and the city government's provision of an alternative location for their businesses, the vendors had returned to the unauthorized spot. As a result, the authorities confiscated their fruit merchandise.

In a display of leniency, the vendors were allowed to reclaim their confiscated goods by paying a P500.00 fine for 'obstruction,' in accordance with the Comprehensive Traffic Code 2000-01. 

The city government stresses that vendors are not being deprived of their livelihoods as long as they operate in the designated areas provided by the LGU. The Traffic Engineering Team continues to urge vendors to follow government policies to avoid similar incidents in the future. —iTacloban (Source: CIO)
