Police yesterday reported a total of 387 violators of the anti-jay walking ordinance who were apprehended in the first three days of the renewed crackdown.

SPO2 Alexander Mabalot, city police information officer, disclosed that the 387 violators were held from November 17 to 19  by policemen deployed in the city’s commercial district.

Out of the 387, 271 paid a fine of P100, while 116 rendered community services as provided for under the ordinance.

The renewed implementation of the ordinance concentrated along Climaco Avenue where pedestrians blatantly violate the jay walking law.

Those who pay the fine are issued an official receipt by the city treasurer office.

Most of the violators were ordinary folks, students and those from other provinces.

After paying the fine ar after rendering community services, violators are lectured by the police to strictlyc observe such law even if they are in other cities. —Dan Toribio
