The composite special task force implementing the Davao City Anti-speeding Law has arrested nearly 12,000 violators this year.
The Anti-Speeding Law has set 30kph, 40kph and 60kph in specified city roads under Executive Order No. 29 issued by Mayor Rodrigo Duterte.
The EO created the special task force composed of the Davao City Police Office (DCPO), Traffic Management Group (TMC), Land Transportation Office (LTO), and the Land Transportation Franchising Board (LTFRB).
Duterte issued EO 39 as part of campaign against abusive drivers.
LTO-Davao Operations Division chief Eleanor S. Calderon said intensified operations against speedsters are ongoing.
City Hall has bought a number of speed guns used by traffic enforcers to monitor violations.
Penalties for violation of the Anti-Speeding Law could go as high as P5,000 and revocation of driver’s license of repeat offenders.
