‘AN UNWANTED PROPOSAL’ — The P250 congestion fee to be collected from private motorists entering the central business district and some parts of the city as proposed by  Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation has caused a public uproar not only among Baguio residents but also people from other places, who share the view that it is better to have the plan tested first in more congested roads in the greater Metro Manila. City Mayor Benjamin Magalong has clarified the plan remains a proposal and citizens’ participation is needed to guide the city government in its decision. — Harley Palangchao
