With the holidays now over, Cagayan de Oro City’s Roads and Traffic Administration (RTA) started re-enforcing Operation Hapsay Merkado around Cogon Market.
It can be observed that traffic in Cogon area was chaotic during the holidays as street vendors were allowed to build stalls along the sidewalks and even occupy portions of the road. Further, trisikads were freely roaming around the market roads, disregarding traffic lights as well as traffic rules. Now, RTA has mobilized its personnel together with the City Economic Enterprises Department (CEED) and some traffic police in managing and enforcing traffic rules around Cogon.
Hopefully, this will be sustained and not just a “ningas cogon” type of implementation.
