Abandoned vehicles to be sold to junk shops in Baguio


BAGUIO CITY: Mayor Mauricio Domogan said abandoned vehicles that cause obstructions along national and local roads here will be sold by the local government to junk shops once owners will defy a request of the anti-road obstruction task force to remove their vehicles along road ways in the city. Domogan said members of the task force will provide the owners of abandoned vehicles the appropriate notice to remove their vehicles before taking the necessary action to sell them. He reiterated the appeal of local officials to motor vehicle owners not to park their vehicles on the sides of the road. Doing so, the mayor said, contributes to tremendous traffic congestions even in the city’s barangay (villages). Domogan added that the city government will invoke its authority over road-right-of-way around the city to allow the smooth flow of traffic even along village roads so that motor vehicle owners will be compelled to look for parking areas. They will coordinate with concerned government agencies for the deputation of barangay officials in the city’s 128 villages. The move will empower them to remove the license plates of vehicles found obstructing traffic and roadway and to impose appropriate penalties.
