Number coding suspended for private cars-A A +A
Monday, March 18, 2013
THE City Government of Baguio suspended the number coding scheme for private cars from March 18 to April 12.
Mayor Mauricio Domogan issued the suspension in anticipation of the influx of visitors for the Holy Week retreat and summer vacation in the city.
“There is a need to suspend the implementation of the number coding scheme on the (said) dates to allow local residents and visitors to freely roam around the Summer Capital and enjoy its cool and romantic weather, pine-scented air and scenic spots during the height of the 2013 Summer Vacation in Baguio,” the mayor noted in Administrative Order No. 38.
The coding break is based on section 6 of Ordinance No. 107 series of 2008 allowing the suspension of the implementation of Ordinance No. 1 series of 2003 known as the “The Baguio City number Coding Scheme Ordinance” during activities sponsored and co-sponsored by the city government.
