The officer-in-charge of the City Administrator’s Office, Dr. Elmer Apolinario, has annoucned that the city needs 20 to 25 additional Traffic Enforcers to man the traffic in the city’s streets amid continuing economic growth.

“Anything that’s good for the city in terms of alleviating the traffic problem we will take it. Yes we need additional enforcers but subject to the availability of financial requirements.” Apolinario said in an interview.

According to Apolinario, the city at present only has 40 traffic enforcers doing the traffic chores and apprehension of traffic violators in the city’s intersections.

Aside from these, budget is also needed as salaries will be given to these enforcers amounting to some P10,000 each per month and benefits although they are only casual employees with contracts renewabl every six month.

He said that the problematic intersections in this city when it comes to traffic include Governor Camins; Sta Cruz; Governor Alvarez; and Nunez Extension.

The city, according to Apolinario, is already looking into the idea that is why they are partnering with the USAID as they will conduct the traffic survey and road capacity.

If the additional traffic enforcers will be realized, all of the city’s intersections will now be covered. — R.G. A A. Go
