Mabalacat City, Pampanga — Some 150 confiscated illegal motorcycle mufflers causing noise on the city’s roads were destroyed with the use of a loader as part of the strict implementation of an anti-muffler ordinance.
Mayor Crisostomo “Cris” Garbo, together with Dapdap barangay captain Javier Taruc and Dapdap COMPAC commander Lt. Silvestre Colanza, led the destruction of the mufflers which produce loud sound disturbing residents especially at night.
Colanza said personnel of the Dapdap COMPAC were mobilized since July, stressing that the confiscation will continue.
“We will continue to confiscate mufflers and we would not get tired of doing it repeatedly as part of our efforts to fully enforce various local ordinances and regulations as well as instill discipline among residents,” Colanza added.
Garbo commended Colanza and his men as he urged motorcycle owners to voluntarily remove the illegal accessories to avoid facing hefty fines.
