Trisikad group seeks amendment to city’s phase-out ordinance

TRISIKAD operators in Capt. Vicente Roa St. are up in arms against a city ordinance that phases out the operation of trisikad in Barangay 27, this city.

Barangay 27 Councilor Morelo Tagod admitted they could not do anything about the ordinance since this has been implemented for quite some time already.

Tagod, who also happens to be a member of the Captain Vicente Roa Trisikad Operators Driver Association (Cavirtoda), asks Councilor Teodulfo Lao, Jr., chairman of City Council’s committee on public utility and transportation, to amend the ordinance.

Taod-taod naman ni nga ordinance,” Tagod said.

However, Tagod said the association’s members rely solely in driving trisikad for a living.

“This has been the main source of income sa atong mga trisikad driver,” said Tagod.

Cavirtoda president Roy Rodriguez and Tagod trooped to the City Council recently to ask for the amended of the ordinance.

Ang ako lang unta tagaan sila ug specific area nga maka operate sila para pud dili sila maka violate sa maong ordinance,” Tagod said.

For his part, Rodriguez said the ordinance is tantamount to pushing people into poverty.

Aning pag drive namo sa sikad dinhi ga kuhaon ang panginahanglanon sa among mga estudyante. Ang amo lang gyud unta nga makapadayon mi sa among panginabuhian,” appealed Rodriguez.
