Narra to ban parked gas trucks on municipal roads


The municipal government of Narra is set to ban the parking of petroleum tankers along its municipal roads.

Mayor Gerandy Danao said he will issue an order next week declaring the act as “dangerous to the public.”

“Hindi na siguro natin ‘yan idadaan as ordinance, administrative order na lang. Sobrang delikado kasi ‘yan na nandyan sila sa tabing kalsada at ang daming dumadaan. Baka mamaya ay may madisgrasya d’yan,” he said.

Danao said fuel tankers should only park in their respective gasoline stations.

“Dapat hindi sila doon kasi nga delikado sa publiko. Dapat doon sila sa mismong gasoline station nila nagpa-park. Madalas kasi silang nasa tabing kalsada kasi kumakain sila o may iba pa silang ginagawa. Pero delikado nga kasi kaya gusto natin na ipagbawal ‘yan,” he pointed out.

Danao added that the trucks are also obstructing the roads from public access and they can be the cause of accidents.

He said his office will no longer wait for an accident to actually happen before he makes a decision.

“Maliban sa nakaambang panganib dala ng mga petroleum tankers, sagabal pa ang mga ito sa trapiko tuwing iginagarahe sa highway o matagal na naka-park sa mga kalsada sa Narra. Posible rin itong maging dahilan ng vehicular accidents dahil kadalasang napapansing walang early warning device,” Danao said.

Danao also said the immediate implementation of the order will solve the traffic problem of the town.
