A SON NOT HONORED IN HIS OWN PLACE

This is proven that Jesus wasn’t honored in his own place, and that made him very much disheartened. “Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house. And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.” (Matthew 13: 57-58)

JAWO HOPES TRAFFIC IMPROVE IN TIME OF OPENING OF SCHOOL YEAR

OUR traffic czar Jawo Jimenez is imploring just the best to happen in their ongoing traffic experimental scheme that’s strictly implementing the city’s current one-way traffic scheme in time for the opening of the school year this coming (June?) that’s, as always, beset with exceeding traffic jams.

So far so good, Jawo, the young ex-city councilor representing district 1, appeared in such a mood, but that a lot of home works on our part( meaning on everybody’s part), has to be done to achieve that kind of traffic condition in our city renowned, since time immemorial, as severely plagued with perennial traffic congestions when peak hours arrive.

He said he supports the city council’s call on our local police traffic enforcers to relax as of this period, in their full implementation of the city’s traffic code, particularly in the parking of our private vehicles in the city.

Under Ordinance # 248, otherwise known as the Revised Traffic Code for ZC, under Art. III, Section 2, provides for one side parking for private vehicles in the following areas( as mentioned), and under its Article III, Section IC, provides that ABSOLUTELY NO PARKING on the following streets( as cited in the Ordinance).

“As long as they don’t impede our traffic, we don’t see why we won’t allow our motorists to park their vehicles,” Jawo pointed out.

The city mayor’s hardworking Executive Assistant who was recently designated to help the office of our lady City Administrator Apple Go in the strict enforcement of the city’s new traffic scheme, revealed the traffic code was enacted way back in 2002 and that there’s its need to already amend it to suit the modern changes going on right now unfolding in our very own eyes, to include the city’s tremendous increase in the volume of its present population that many of our experts in this aspect, are saying to have easily exceeded already the 1 million mark. What’s worse, the volume of the running vehicles in the city, has also gone up horrendously.

AND these are the following areas and/or streets worth mentioning here, where the one side parking for private vehicles and the Absolutely No Parking, are being contemplated by our city officials to be rather exercised with humanitarian consideration by our traffic cops on our hapless motorists by relaxing on them.

RECOMMENDATION

RESOLVED: “To call on the office of the City Administrator and the police station 11 commander to relax the implementation of Ord. No. 248, in particular, the provisions under Art. 111, Section 1-C, thus giving them leeway as they see fit, to allow parking in the areas not limited to Art. III, Sec. 2, as long as the same will not impede the flow of traffic and until such time that the Revised Traffic Code for Zamboanga City is finally amended.” (By Jun Feliciano) (30)
