Colorum vehicles ban to ease Metro traffic – lawmaker

MANILA 2nd District Rep. Rolando Valeriano said on Wednesday that banning colorum public utility vehicles from roads and implementing the no contact apprehension policy (NCAP) are substantial steps in reducing vehicular traffic in Metro Manila.

He made the statement after the Management Association of the Philippines urged the government to declare a «traffic czar» due to the calamitous effect of heavy traffic in metropolitan areas.

Valeriano called on the operators of Skyway Stage 3 to make their toll rates affordable to motorists.

«I appeal to the Skyway 3 operator and [the Department of Transportation] to please find ways to reduce the Skyway 3 toll fees so that more motorists, cargo vehicles, and provincial buses will use the Skyway 3,» he said.

Valeriano suggested that the Department of Public Works and Highways build multi-level parking facilities in strategic locations.

«Elevated parking will clear roads of vehicles obstructing traffic and vendors that occupy sidewalks and lanes of roads. Elevated parking can be built on both private and public lots, abandoned lots, and expropriated lots,» he said.
