No major traffic incidents recorded during ‘Undas’-A A +A
Friday, November 2, 2012
THE Traffic Management Center (TMC) of Davao City recorded no major vehicular incidents related to the observance of this year's All Saints' and All Souls' Day or “Undas.”
Retired Colonel Desiderio Cloribel, TMC chief, told Sun.Star Davao Friday over the phone that this year's Undas is generally in order in terms of traffic management.
Cloribel said only five minor vehicular accidents have been recorded that are directly related to the celebration of Undas.
Fortunately, Cloribel said there has been no casualty to those accidents as only vehicles were damaged.
Since Thursday until Sunday, TMC has implemented re-routing schemes on major cemeteries across Davao City.
Cloribel reminded the public to be familiar with the re-routing schedules to avoid inconvenience and further delays.
A re-routing scheme, which is expected to last until Sunday, is being implemented in major cemeteries in the city, including Davao Memorial Park along McArthur Highway in Matina, Chinese Cemetery on Sarenas Road, Buhangin Memorial Park along Buhangin-Cabantian Road, and in five neighboring cemeteries in Madapo Hills.
TMC also reminded all motorists to observe and respect all traffic laws put in place for a smoother observance of Undas 2012.
Meanwhile, the Land Transportation Office-Davao said it ensured passenger safety through inspections of buses and vans in public terminals.
LTO Regional Director Gomer Dy said their personnel were checking the passenger vehicles’ registration to discourage colorum vehicles from taking advantage of the influx of passengers. (Jereco O. Paloma/With report from ANC)
