The provincial government of Cavite will finally implement a number coding scheme for all vehicles starting December 22 (Thursday) like the one being used in Metro Manila.
This comes nearly a month after the Provincial Board passed Traffic Ordinance 164, authored by first district Board Member Gilbert Gandia, on November 28. Governor Jesus Crispin “Boying” Remulla and Vice Governor Ramon Jolo Revilla signed the ordinance recently and ordered its publication, with notices to the public being circulated starting Monday.
Cavite’s Unified Vehicular Reduction System bans vehicles with license plates ending on a certain number from taking the roads in the morning from 6 to 9 a.m. and afternoons from 3 to 7 p.m. based on this schedule: 1 and 2 on Mondays, 3 and 4 on Tuesdays, 5 and 6 on Wednesdays, 7 and 8 on Thursdays, and 9 and 0 on Fridays.
Gandia, chairman of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan’s transportation and communication committee, modeled the UVRP after the number-coding scheme of the Metro Manila Development Authority.
The traffic scheme will be implemented along Aguinaldo Highway, from Bacoor City to the Dasmariñas-Silang Boundary; along Governor’s Drive from Carmona to the Trece Martires-Tanza boundary; the Molino-Salawag-Paliparan Road from Zapote in Bacoor to Paliparan in Dasmariñas City; Molino Boulevard; and Daang Hari Road, from Aguinaldo Highway in Imus to Molino in Bacoor.
