The Cebu City Trans­porta­tion Of­fice (CCTO) clamped 182 ve­hi­cles that were parked in no-park­ing zones from Sun­day, Jan. 13, un­til 5 p.m. Mon­day, Jan. 14. The most num­ber of no-park­ing vi­o­la­tors were found at the back of Cebu Tech­no­log­i­cal Uni­ver­sity’s main cam­pus on S. Os­meña Ave. near the tun­nel lead­ing to the South Road Prop­er­ties. CCTO per­son­nel clamped 42 ve­hi­cles as they blocked the side­walks in­tended for pedestrians. Sev­eral cars were also clamped near Com­paña Mar­itima as they blocked the flow of traf­fic. Efren Navales, CCTO su­per­vi­sor, said 115 of 150 ve­hi­cles were clamped dur­ing day­time, while the 35 other cars were clamped at 12:01 a.m. Mon­day, Jan. 14. A mo­torist has to pay a P1,500 fine for his clamped ve­hi­cle. CCTO Op­er­a­tions Head Fran­cisco Ouano urged mo­torists not to park their ve­hi­cles in no-park­ing zones as they can block the pedestrians and ob­struct the traf­fic flow. He said they are not clamp­ing ve­hi­cles for CCTO to in­crease its rev­enue from traf­fic vi­o­la­tors. Ouano said their in­ten­tion is to make the roads safe and orderly dur­ing the Fi­esta Señor and Sin­u­log. The CCTO de­cided to des­ig­nate the wide side­walk of S. Os­meña Ave., from the cor­ner of Palma St. to­ward Plaza In­de­pen­den­cia, as a tem­po­rary park­ing area. The left side­walk of V. Sotto, from the cor­ner of S. Os­meña Ave. up to Pier 3, was also des­ig­nated as a tem­po­rary park­ing area.
