AN ORDINANCE AMENDING ORDINANCE NO. 78, SERIES OF 1977,
"AN ORDINANCE IMPOSING PENALTIES ON DRIVERS AND
CONDUCTORS OF MOTOR VEHICLES IN VIOLATION OF THE
MISCELLANEOUS TRAFFIC RULES AND REGULATION, AND
PROVIDING SCHEDULE OF FINES AND PENALTIES THEREOF

Sponsored by Councilor Erwin J. Plagata


And seconded by Councilors Armand S. Parcon and Lyndon V. Acap

WHEREAS, Article II, Section 458 of Republic Act 7160, otherwise known as the Local
Government Code, empowers the Sangguniang Panlungsod to regulate the use of streets, and
regulate traffic, and providing penalties, thereof;

WHEREAS, in terms of compliance to traffic ordinances, the fines and penalties


provided under Ordinance No. 78, Series of 1977, have outlived the objectives for which they
were enacted and have become monetarily insignificant, making traffic ordinances open to
wanton violations by drivers and operators.

WHEREAS, it is the recommendation of the Technical Working Group on Traffic to


revise the schedule of fines and penalties for traffic violators, in order to give more teeth to
traffic ordinances of Iloilo City and subsequently put order back to the streets.
