Crackdown on tricycles
without permits starts
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE

The Traffic Management Office has started rounding up tricycle drivers in Dumaguete for failure to comply with the traffic rules and regulations of the city.

TMO operations officer Danny Atillo said about 50 tricycle drivers plying the streets of Dumaguete were flagged down Tuesday as a lot were seen driving without the required stickers.

The crackdown was a result of the information relayed by the Permits Section of City Hall during the “What's Up in City Hall” interaction that of the 2,500 operators of motorcabs for hire in Dumaguete, only 2,175 were granted motorized tricycles operators permits.
