THE municipal government of Minglanilla is finally getting a boost in it traffic enforcement and management capability.
This after Minglanilla Mayor Rajiv Enad and officials of the Minglanilla Traffic Command (Mitcom) unveiled its new traffic command center, which featured cameras that can do facial and vehicle plate recognition capability.
The unveiling of Mitcom’s new command center occurred on Friday, August 5, 2022.
With this new upgrade, Minglanilla has become the first among Cebu Province’s municipalities to have a modern command center, aimed at helping address traffic and security concerns.
In a statement, Enad said the new command center also aims to facilitate rapid response to accidents and any eventuality, adding that he wants Mitcom to implement his mantra of rapid action in delivering government service to their constituents.
“We are very happy to see that we can closely monitor all roads and major corners. Everybody in Minglanilla is assured that if there are traffic violations, or collisions or any incident on our thoroughfares, we are better equipped now to respond to it,” Enad added.
New traffic chief
Aside from their new command center, Enad also introduced Mitcom’s new traffic chief, Glenn Antigua.
Antigua was formerly the chief of operations of the Traffic Enforcement Agency of Mandaue (Team) before he transferred work in Minglanilla.
Enad said that although their command center had just newly opened, it has already assisted local police in solving crimes during its testing period.
According to Enad, their newly-established command center assisted police in the solving several theft incidents in town and has been instrumental in assisting citizens whose belongings were left behind in areas where cameras are present.
Enad said that since he assumed office last month, he has been taking steps to achieve a better traffic situation in the southern Cebu town, including penalizing a truck company for the traffic congestion caused by their truck that got stalled on the highway.
Enad’s administration is also moving to approve ordinances to impose stiffer penalties for stalled vehicles and other road obstructions, as well as to regulate the hours that trucks can use their highways. (PR)
