As all schools, colleges and universities prepare for the school opening all over the country, the Land Transportation Office has re-activated its “Oplan Balik Eskwela” involving all LTO regional offices.

LTO-9 Director Aminola P. Abaton said it is the mandate of LTO regional offices to assist and to decongest traffic and adopt road safety measures to ensure that parents and schoolers will go to school without road hazards.

Many observers say that roads and streets going to the different schools  in Zamboanga City experience heavy traffic on school days  because there are many public and private schools,colleges and universities  in the city unlike in Pagadian City or Dipolog City where schools are minimal.

Abaton said the different LTO District Offices in the region with their Traffic Law Enforcers have come up with a traffic scheme for a smooth flow of motorvehicles. This is being implemented in coordination with the local traffic police and  government traffic enforcers.

Abaton also advised pedestrians and schoolers to follow the traffic laws so that they will not be charged for jaywalking. — Allen Abastillas
