- Vico Sotto promised that he will immediately suspend the confusing traffic scheme in Pasig
- He added that he would also remove the “quota” for the traffic enforcers
- Sotto mentioned that he was the only councilor who opposed the scheme in the past
Mayor-elect Vico Sotto said that he would immediately suspend the confusing odd-even coding scheme in Pasig City that was implemented in 2016.
KAMI learned that other than that, Sotto vowed to remove the “quota” set for the traffic enforcers in Pasig.
During an interview in DZMM Teleradyo, Sotto mentioned that he was the only councilor that opposed the confusing scheme.
"Proud po akong sabihin at lagi ko pong sinasabi na ko lang po ang konsehal na tumutol sa odd-even na coding scheme, at tatanggalin ko po kaagad yan,” he said.
"Yung pagkasulat po sa ordinansa ay puwede po natin siyang i-suspend. So in effect, matatanggal po siya," he added.
Last March, Sotto also addressed this concern on Twitter when a netizen asked him about his plans regarding the traffic scheme.
“Happy to report that I was the only councilor who opposed the odd-even scheme. It is unfair and ineffective if we look at the big picture. I will remove it on my first day of office,” he said.
In a report by ABS-CBN News, the traffic scheme is in effect over the roads: Elisco Road; R. Jabson St.; San Guillermo Street; Sandoval Avenue; and F. Legaspi Bridge.
Under the scheme, four-wheeled cars ending with even numbers are not allowed to use the said roads every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, while plates ending with odd numbers cannot pass the roads during Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
As previously reported by KAMI, Vico’s father, Vic Sotto, said that even selling “biko” was temporarily banned in Pasig during the campaign period.
