      City to remove noisy motorbikes    


48,000 MOTORCYCLES HERE

The city officialdom and citizens in general have vowed to remove noisy motorcycles zooming the city streets to the consternation of the general public.

There are 28,000 LTO- registered private motorbikes in Dumaguete and 4,500 tricycles. Not all are without silencers, but enough numbers to annoy many of the city’s 19,000 households especially at night till dawn.

The following were guests during “CROSS TALK” public affairs talk show at DYEM FM BAI RADIO Thursday:

Kagawads DanDan Leon, Manuel Arbon, Lionel Banogon, LTO head Marliza Elesterio, TMO officer Danny Atillo, Forest camp owner and advocate Florante “Tengi” Vicuña and city administrator William Ablong.

CRITICAL REPORTING  
   

Do you know that this motorcycle city of Dumaguete does not have an anti-noisy motorycle ordinance? Our city officials along with 100,000 citizens are awaken at the middle of the night with noisy zooming motorcyclists without due respect to our citizens, and we do not yet have a law prohibiting the removal of silencers and mufflers from motoryclces?

We don’t buy the idea that the city is still awaiting the LTO regulation. By law, as provided for in the local government code, the city government has long been empowered to protect and promote the general welfare of the people, and there are enough provisions in our |Civil Code which provides for the abatement of public nuisance and the Revised Penal Code which prohibits public disorder.

And city hall has two lawyers who don’t have to be consulted about noise pollution of motorcycles. We cannot believe that our city officials can live with this daily blatant public disorder caused by noisy motorcycles that no councilor has sponsored such an ordinance?

They are celebrating in Dumaguete the internationally flavored 28th Biennial General Assembly.Needless to say, our APO visitors shall have contributed immensely to our tourism economy and that of our neighbors’.

Their keynote speaker last Friday was Vice President Jejomar Binay who was an APO member himself in his college days in Manila.
