NOISY MOTORBIKE STAKEHOLDERS: LR Kagawads Arbon, Banogon, Leon, and LTO’s Marliza
Elesterio, TMO Dany Atillo, Tengi Vecuña and City Adm. William Ablong. CROSSTALK HOST at
DYEM BAI RADIO is Ely Dejaresco.
The city officialdom and citizens in general have
vowed to remove noisy motorcycles zooming
the city streets to the consternation of the general
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.
What to do:
First, the long awaited legislation that will penalize
users of noisy motorbikes...
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
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
Truly living up to its rising reputation
as a convention city,
Dumaguete is playing host to
some 5000 members of the international
fraternity called the Alpha
Phi Omega and its sister organization,
the Lambda Gamma sorority.
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.
No to sex education in school PRO-LIFE Philip
Inc. is deeply saddened

of the decision of
the Department of Education

in our primary and
system a course on sex
