Valenzuela authorizes traffic enforcers to issue tickets for illegal parking

Valenzuela City has authorized traffic personnel to issue tickets to motorists who illegally park their vehicles on the city's streets.

Valenzuela Mayor Rex Gatchalian said that traffic personnel issuing violation tickets for illegally parked vehicles in the city is part of the President’s order, citing a memorandum issued by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) to reclaim all public roads that are used for private ends.

On his Facebook page, Gatchalian posted Memorandum Circular 2019-12 to give clarifications on complaints he was receiving from city residents who have been issued violation tickets for parking in front of their houses.

“I’ve been receiving tweets and posts here as to why our TMO [traffic management office] personnel are going around issuing violation tickets for illegally parked cars,” his post read.

“People mistake na the road in front of their house is theirs to park on. Hindi po ganon ang batas,” it added.

Under the said memorandum, “all local government officials are enjoined to exercise their powers essential to reclaim public roads which are being used for private ends and in the process, rid them of illegal structures and constructions,” including vehicles parked on public roads.

Gatchalian futhered that the city also has an ordinance which prohibits parking on public roads as well as illegal terminals.

The city government launched early this year the Disiplina Hotline 352-8000, where residents can report about the city’s five main ordinances violators, including those who illegally park, in its bid to rid the city’s major thoroughfares of obstructions.
