The Lamitan city government has attributed its lack of problems on overcharging tricycle drivers to a task force directed to oversee tricycle operations in the city.

Lamitan Mayor Rose Furigay said that the task force is in charge of taking note of complaints and going after the erring drivers.

The task force even has a mobile team with radio equipment to locate abusive drivers, Furigay said.

Furigay said that this is the reason why Lamitan city does not have reports on overcharging and discourteous tricycle drivers.

Lamitan city has no ordinance to regulate the operation of tricycles.  Fare matrices are displayed in the units and followed by both driver and passenger, Furigay said.

The lady mayor urged visitors to inform the city government should they encounter abusive and discourteous drivers in Lamitan city.  (Allen Abastillas)
