Just recently, the Iloilo City Government puts ‘road safety with love’ signs in a bid to make road safety rules and regulations more ‘lovable’ to motorists and the general public. Signs printed in tarpaulin are said to be mounted in 26 loading and unloading bays along Iloilo City’s ‘Traffic Discipline Zone’.
It can be recalled that Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas designated a 14 kilometer stretch of Senator Benigno Aquino Jr Avenue as a ‘traffic discipline zone’. The 14-kilometer stretch will commence from the bridge nearby University of the Philippines in the Visayas up to Ungka Iloilo Terminal and General Services in Jaro District. The traffic discipline zone will be implemented by the Land Transportation Office and the Highway Patrol Group. Among those that will be enforced include speed limit, anti-modified mufflers, helmet policy, no registration, illegal modification, proper loading and unloading, and other regulations stipulated on road traffic.
