Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas recently expressed his concern over the prevalence of hit and run cases in the city. In line with this, the mayor assigned Public Safety and Transportation Management Office Head Jeck Conlu to coordinate with the Iloilo City Police Office Director Colonel Martin Defensor Jr and to discuss steps in preventing further incidents.
It can be recalled that several cases hit and run occurred in the City of Love. The most recent incident involves a 39-year-old security guard last December 18. The victim was hit while riding his bicycle in front of SM City Iloilo, along Diversion Road. The culprit vehicle was identified as a Toyota Fortuner.
Moreover, Treñas is anticipating the installment of an ‘Intelligent Transport System’, an advanced application that will provide innovative solutions in terms of traffic and transport management.
