Lingayen Mayor Leopoldo Bataoil has ordered the strict implementation of Republic Act 4136 or the law banning tricycles along national highways.
The Pangasinan politiko said included in the ban are tractors and other slow-moving vehicles.
Bataoil explained that residents have been complaining that tricycles are occupying the national highway’s fast-moving lane.
“That’s the law that was not being enforced in the past,” he said.
“As mayor of Lingayen and being a former PNP officer, I have to set an example by enforcing the law,” he added.
