THE Iloilo City Public Safety and Transportation Management Office (PSTMO) will conduct a 30-minute traffic education in schools to create new generations of drivers and commuters who will respect the traffic ordinances and road laws of the city.
PSTMO head Jeck Conlu said they will educate the students about the traffic ordinances and safety rules and guidelines, including the identification of loading and unloading areas and proper use of pedestrian lanes.
He said the program will be conducted whole year round and will start in June.
He said the PSTMO will seek the help of the Department of Education (DepEd) and Land Transportation Office to finalize the program.
In the meantime, they will conduct a short discussion or “initial input” after the flag ceremonies in different schools, Conlu added.
He said the problem will be fully implemented after DepEd's approval. It will cover the universities, colleges and high schools.
“The students should be educated so that after they graduated, they will know the dos and don’ts of the traffic,” Conlu said. (SunStar Philippines)
