THE Bacolod City Po­lice Of­fice (BCPO) has ar­rested 2,641 col­o­rum vi­o­la­tors in 2018.

Se­nior Su­per­in­ten­dent Fran­cisco Ebreo, act­ing BCPO direc­tor, said 4,189 op­er­a­tions were con­ducted against col­o­rum op­er­a­tors in the city.

It re­sulted in the ac­cu­mu­lated fine of P3,753,000 from Jan­uary 1 to De­cem­ber 31, 2018.

The city po­lice force is in­ten­si­fy­ing the im­ple­men­ta­tion of City Or­di­nance 185 Se­ries of 1997, an or­di­nance reg­u­lat­ing the op­er­a­tion of mo­tor­ized tri­cy­cles and grant­ing of a fran­chise for the op­er­a­tion.

E-trikes and pedi­cabs are not al­lowed to pass by the na­tional road as they will be sanc­tioned for “out of route.”*
