Solutions to Dumaguete
traffic woes discussed

Salonga Center director Mikhail Lee Maxino of Silliman University in Dumaguete City gathered traffic enforcers to discuss the traffic problems in the city, recently.

The forum was in partnership with the Traffic Management Office of Dumaguete, held amidst the increasing traffic challenges in the City, such as rush hour congestion and road accidents.

The traffic enforcers pointed out that there are only a few of them giving tickets to all traffic violators. The ticket per violation is only P50, so the drivers can easily pay their way out, the enforcers added.
