A day after the dry run of implementing DILG Memo Circular No. 2020-036 banning tricycles along highways, hundreds of tricycles in Gingoog City paraded through the National Highway in protest of the said directive.
As shown below, hundreds of tricycle drivers and operators in Gingoog City joined the motorcade.
Watch this clip below.
Just yesterday, the National Highway in Gingoog City was a picture of order without the presence of tricycles.
It can be recalled that MC 2020-036 also states that the local sanggunian may provide exceptions if there is no alternative route. In the absence of such alternative route, LGUs are encouraged to include plans of construction of local roads where tricycles can operate. Read our post below.
