BACOLOD City Councilor Catalino Alisbo has proposed an ordinance prohibiting all store owners and establishments from putting up signs for “exclusive use” or “reserve parking only” and other obstacles in front of their stores and business establishment as the space is for public use and providing penalties for violation thereof.

He said that some business and commercial establishments and other entities are putting these signs designating or appropriating certain portions of the city street as “reserved parking only” and “exclusively for” in front of their store, office or establishment, depriving other motorists to avail of the parking space.

He said this ordinance is aimed at helping the City Government to free the roads and sidewalks from obstruction from such signs and minimize traffic caused by illegally parked vehicles.


“It is high time to return the use of the allowable street or parking areas to all motorists who are taxpayers and are just as entitled to use the parking areas as those who pre-empt them illegally for their own exclusive use,” said Alisbo. (CNC)
