BCPO City Director, Col. Francisco Bulwayan, Jr. in his report said Traffic Enforcement Unit (TEU) personnel met with the food delivery company where the victim was employed to solicit management’s support in reminding and encouraging their drivers to observe defensive driving and to follow traffic rules at all times.
The TEU under Maj. Zacarias Dau-sen also coordinated with personnel of the BCPO Station 4 for the conduct of aggressive checkpoint activities along the road and to apprehend over speeding vehicles including motorcycles traversing Loakan Road
Joint operations with the Land Transportation Office will also be conducted regularly along identified areas in the city to monitor and address similar problems on over speeding and traffic violations. – Aileen P. Refuerzo
