A proposed ordinance that seeks to establish the alternate day traffic scheme in Dumaguete was opposed by majority of the 2,500 motorcabs for hire in the city during a public consultation at the Lamberto Macias Sports Complex yesterday.
Operators and drivers said it is not the motorcabs for hire causing congestion in Dumaguete, but the four-wheeled private vehicles, including delivery vans and trucks, that are allowed entry at certain hours of the day.
Roberto Remolano, an operator, said that if the city is sincere in its campaign to decongest traffic, it should not single out the motorcabs or tricycles because this is tantamount to class legislation.
