TAB: Increased complaints against overcharging trikes cannot prosper


The office of the Tricycle Adjudication Board (TAB) bared an increase in the complaints of passengers against tricycle drivers involved in overcharging and “isnabero.”

Arturo Cabidog, a representative of the TAB and the City Legal Office said, after the City Council approved Ordinance 185, increasing the fines against drivers who snub and overcharge their passengers, the TAB office has been swarmed with several complaints.

Cabidog said most of the complaints they received are through text messages and social media postings.

However, Cabidog said the TAB office has not acted on many of these grievances because the complainants have not gone to their office to make the complaint official.

“Ta apela kame cunel maga reclamante para bene aqui na oficina y oficialmente man file el diila reclamo hinde lang na text message o na social media,” Cabidog said.

He added that the complainants must formally file the complaint so the TAB can act and investigate the drivers concerned.

Under the recently amended tricycle ordinance, the fines on isnabero and overcharging trike drivers has been increased.

Violators of these two provisions will be fined P4,000 for the first offense, P5,000 for the second offense and P5,000 plus revocation of franchise for the third offense. (Nonong Santiago)
