CTTMO to is­sue ad­vi­sory on giv­ing alms

Sun.Star Davao - - TOP STORIES - BY RANDIE COMILANG / Reporter

Davao City Trans­port and Traf­fic Man­age­ment Of­fice (CTTMO) urges the mo­torists to re­frain from giv­ing alms to beg­gars es­pe­cially to chil­dren carol­ing along the road.

CTTMO chief Dion­i­sio Abude said dur­ing the Is­peak press con­fer­ence that they have pre­pared an ad­vi­sory for mo­torists dis­cour­ag­ing them from giv­ing alms to beg­gars since it can cause ac­ci­dents and also a vi­o­la­tion to City Or­di­nance 0334-12, sec­tion 155-158 or “Pedes­trian Du­ties and Re­spon­si­bil­i­ties.”

“Atong huna hu­naon ang safety sa mga mo­torista ug kin­ing mga bata, (We should keep in mind the safety of the chil­dren),” Abude said.

He noted that the idea to re­frain giv­ing money to the beg­gars is to de­crease the num­ber of those beg­ging along the roads.

How­ever, he added that in­stead of giv­ing money to beg­gar, he is en­cour­ag­ing the mo­torists to give their do­na­tions to City So­cial Ser­vice De­vel­op­ment Of­fice (CSSDO) and De­part­ment of So­cial Work and De­vel­op­ment (DSWD).

Abude added that the ad­vi­sory is still up for ap­proval by the City Ad­min­is­tra­tor.
