City Council approves no-speeding, slow speed zones in Baguio
The Baguio City Council approved on first reading the establishment of no-speeding zones or slow speed zones in the city.
The ordinance, authored by Baguio City Councilor Lilia Fariñas, states that 4-wheel drive vehicles and motorcycles will be allowed to travel at a speed of not more than 30 kilometers per hour.
The streets with a 30-kilometer-per-hour speed limit are Session Road, Harrison Road, Governor Pack Road, Magsaysay Avenue, Naguilian Road, Buhagan Road, Leonard Wood Road, Military Cut-off Road, Kisad Road, and Legarda Road.
Other barangays and streets are classified as strictly no-speeding zones and vehicles are only allowed a maximum speed of 25 kilometers per hour.
The Baguio City public market area and roads leading to tourist destinations, meanwhile, will be declared as slow-speed zones where vehicles will only be allowed to have a maximum speed of 20 kilometers per hour.
The proposed no-speeding zones and slow-speed zones aim to reduce road accidents in Baguio City.
