0

PAGADIAN CITY, Zamboanga del Sur: The city government in coordination with the police have apprehended and impounded 150 motorcycles, including tricycles with improvised mufflers which is a violation of Republic Act (RA) 4136 otherwise known as the Land Transportation and Traffic Code. The apprehension came after Mayor Romeo Pulmones ordered a campaign against the use of improvised mufflers following complaints from the residents against noisy motorcycles as well as tricycles. Pulmones said the use of improvised mufflers violates RA 4136 (Art. IV, Sect. 34) which states that “Every motor vehicle propelled by an internal combustion engine shall be equipped with a muffler, and whenever said motor vehicle passes through a street of any city, municipality, or thickly populated district or barrio, the muffler shall not be cut out or disconnected. No motor vehicle shall be operated in such a manner as to cause it to emit or make any unnecessary or disagreeable odor, smoke or noise.”
