THE Cebu City Transportation Office will ban e-scooters from using the national high ways in the City of Cebu.

Ronnie Nadera of CCTO said scooters with engines below 50cc will also be seized. He said these vehicles cause danger in the roads.

CCTO's implementation on the scooter ban is based on Section 7 of Article 4 of the Cebu City Traffic Ordinance.

Councilor Joel Garganera, an e-scooter user, said there is no official or final guidelines yet on the use of electric scooters on public roads, its still being reviewed by DOTR Road Sector , Legal Affairs and the Office of the DOTR Secretary.

"It is untimely that this City will put limitations to people's access to affordable, clean and environmental friendly, social distancing alternative mode of transportation. Not this time of pandemic. We are the only City in the country who will be doing it," Garganera said. (PAC)
