City hall starts drive vs illegally operated ’rela units

THE Roads and Traffic Administration (RTA) started a clampdown on the illegally operated motorela in the city, impounding at least 10 units yesterday morning.

Engr. Nonito Oclarit, RTA operations chief, said the campaign was started on orders coming from Mayor Oscar Moreno.

The RTA, according to Oclarit, noted an increase in illegally operated motorela units in the city as soon as the fares increased.

“Di man gud puede nga dili sila mo secure og matrix sa pletehan nga original gikan city hall. Kadtong walay in ana di puede mo byahe mao nang mahibaw-an ang colorum,” he said.

Oclarit said owners of motorela units who complied with the requirements have been complaining about the “colorum.”

But Oclarit said the RTA was also aware that there were more illegally operated motorela units in the city’s streets at night.

Some have matrix photocopies which, he said, is not acceptable.

The RTA, he said, would continue its operations against drivers and owners of illegally operated motorela units.

The seized motorela units were brought to Kauswagan and would only be released back to the owners after they have paid up fines and complied with city hall’s requirements.
