THE Public Safety and Traffic Management Department (PSTMD) personnel of the City Government of Caloocan received 30 new ticketing devices to aid in the implementation of the single ticketing system (STS).

The devices, which were distributed evenly to both the north and south units of the PSTMD, are supposed to be fine-tuned to apply the penalties provided by the STS and harmonize local and national traffic regulations.

City Mayor Dale Gonzalo “Along” Malapitan reminded the motorists to observe traffic rules and noted that the success of the STS rests on the proper cooperation between various departments of the city government and the general public.

“Panawagan po natin sa ating mga motorista, ngayong mas makabago na po ang mga kagamitan at sistemamg sinusunod ng ating mga enforcer, panatilihin po natin ang pagsunod sa mga batas-trapiko upang makaiwas sa mga penalty at lalo na sa mga aksidente,” Malapitan said.

“Tulong-tulong po tayong lahat kasama ng PSTMD, City Treasury Department, pati na ang Caloocan City Police Station (CCPS) upang maayos na maipatupad ang STS sa ating lungsod,” he added.

Likewise, Malapitan expects that the procurement of new devices for said city personnel will lead to fewer instances of corrupt practices with regard to traffic management.

“Matagal na po nating nilalabanan ang mga nanunuhol para lang makatakas sa kanilang mga nilabag na batas-trapiko, kasama pa ng mga ‘nangongotong’ sa ating mga kalsada. Sa pamamagitan po ng mga bagong ticketing at ng bagong sistema, mas mababawasan po ang ganitong mga gawain,” the mayor said.

Additional 10 devices are set to be provided to the CCPS in the coming days as part of their own traffic management responsibilities.
