Over 100 vehicles caught violating traffic code

first_imgTRAFFIC VIOLATION. There’s a “No Parking” sign on this part of Timawa Street in Molo, Iloilo City but the drivers of these vehicles are ignoring it. Are there no traffic enforcers in the area to apprehend these violators? IAN PAUL CORDERO/PN Pericon observed that what’s mostly lacking among drivers isawareness on the proper use of public roads. ILOILO City – Follow traffic rules and regulations. This is theappeal of the Highway Patrol Group (HPG) to drivers here and in Iloiloprovince. The vehicles are not impounded, he clarified. “Indi mantanan pero may mga drivers kulang gid ‘ya sang education with regards sa paggamit sang karsada. Like mayma-overtake sa solid line whichis indi puede. Pag-abot sa city may ‘Slowdown’ sign pero sige or wala sila naga-respond.May ‘No Parking’ sign pero naga-park gid,” lamented Pericon. Pericon said the Provincial Highway Patrol Team – Iloilo goesaround and checks roads and the traffic situation in Iloilo city and province. “Patas angamon pag-implement sang batas. Bisantropa ka man, basta naka-violate ka,salabton mo na ‘ya,” he stressed. Those apprehended are issued with notices of violation and arefined with the following: From January to September 2019 over a hundred vehicles (includingmotorcycles) have been issued with notices of violation by the HPG’s ProvincialHighway Patrol Team – Iloilo.  Pericon said they get the details of the violating vehicles anddrivers and forward the information to the LTO where the drivers must settlethe penalties. * third offense – P3,000 and revocation of driver’s license * first offense – P1,000 Yes, he said, there are indeed “pasaway”drivers. Their most common violation is illegal parking on public roads. The Highway Patrol Group is mandated to also help implement localtraffic ordinances, enforce the law related to carnapping, highway robbery,Presidential Decree (PD) 1612 or anti-fencing law, PD 96 or illegal attachmentof vehicles, and other crimes involving the use of motor vehicles on highways. RA 4136 is the law on traffic violations, traffic management andtraffic enforcement. It also gives mandate to the Land Transportation Office(LTO) to “get rid of all illegal parkings and traffic obstructions along thehighways.” Pericon also said the Provincial Highway Patrol Team – Iloiloenforces traffic rules and regulations fairly. They apprehend even fellowpolice officers for traffic violations, he revealed. * second offense – P2,000 (driver is also required to undergo atraffic seminar) All must follow Republic Act (RA) 4136 or the Land Transportationand Traffic Code, stressed Police Executive Master Sergeant Pedro Pericon,officer in charge of the Provincial Highway Patrol Team – Iloilo. The latest mandate of the Highway Patrol Group from the nationalpolice headquarters is to help local government units clear roads ofobstructions as ordered by President Rodrigo Duterte./PNlast_img read more

Carroll glad to be back

first_img The 24-year-old is currently on loan at Upton Park from Liverpool but the beginning of his West Ham career has been blighted by hamstring and knee injuries. Carroll is now fit but he admits it was difficult to settle into Sam Allardyce’s side due to his injuries. “Coming into a new team and getting injured in my first game put me out for six weeks which was frustrating,” he told West Ham’s official website. Press Association West Ham striker Andy Carroll believes his recent injury worries are behind him after he scored his second goal of the season in Saturday’s 1-0 win over Swansea.center_img “Then I was back for a couple of games and was out for eight weeks. It’s hard when you’re injured anyway, but when it’s at a new club it’s even harder. I’ve kept my head up as much as possible and worked hard with the physios and fitness coaches to get back and I showed on Saturday that I am fit.” Carroll praised the club’s medical team for getting him back to fitness in time to make a match-winning start against Swansea as West Ham claimed only their second Barclays Premier League win in 10 games. He said: “I’ve been keeping fit in the gym and all the backroom staff have been helping me. The fitness coaches and physios have been on me, working me hard. When I couldn’t run I was in the gym and the hard work paid off with 90 minutes on Saturday. “I didn’t find out until the day of the game that I was going to start and obviously I was over the moon with the decision. I just had to work hard, run around and keep the ball as much as I could. It was a tough game and I’m just happy that we got the three points.” Carroll’s 77th-minute header was the first time he had scored at Upton Park and he revealed he was delighted to be off the mark in front of the Hammers’ supporters. “It’s a great feeling to score anywhere, but when you’ve got the fans behind you like this, singing your name after you’ve scored, it’s even better,” he said. “Coming off the pitch, man of the match and with three points, it’s a great feeling. The fans are great, they got behind us and they were like the 12th man, helping us along. Even when Swansea put the pressure on late in the game, they gave us confidence with the singing and cheering us on. It’s great.” last_img read more

Boxers discovered through the programme, he added, also have their professional licences paid for by the sponsors and benefit from a health check equally paid for by GOtv.“GOtv Boxing NextGen Search has helped unearth some of the best boxers Nigeria currently has.

The WABU President said the NBB of C, of which he is the scribe, will continue to support the programme, as it is convinced that Nigerian boxing will be made great again through GOtv Boxing NextGen Search.“The truth is Nigeria professional boxing has never had it so good. GOtv Next Gen Search and the GOtv management have done very well for professional boxing in Nigeria. The first one brought out a crop of good boxers and they are still doing very well in the Nigerian professional boxing sphere”.“Since it started, it has actually improved the quality of our boxers. We are hoping for more improvement but so far so good, it’s not just a pass mark for them, they have done excellently. We at the Nigerian Boxing Board of Control appreciate this gesture and we are 100 percent in support of it every time and anytime.”GOtv Boxing NextGen Search 4 will hold at the Dunkin Pepper Gym inside the MKO International Stadium Complex, Abeokuta between September 13 and 15.
