Palawan board member Dennis Sabando is seeking the regulation of speed limits of all tourist vans in the province.

In his privilege speech Tuesday, Sabando said the recent vehicular accidents in Roxas town involved tourists as passengers.

“Napakabilis ng mga sasakyan dito, minsan umaabot ng 120 ang bilis. Sana magawan ng paraan kasi hindi lang isa ang nadidisgrasya kundi sunod-sunod na,” Sabando said.

He advised drivers to be careful to avoid accidents while expressing the opinion that 100 kilometers per hour (kph) should be imposed for the safety of travelers.

Sabando said the latest accident he personally witnessed had foreign tourists as passengers.

“Sobrang bilis ng mga sasakyan, ang dami ng naaksidente. Nakaraan nakita ko ang van na naaksidente ang mga sakay ay turista. Ang dinadala nila ay buhay, kaya sana naman may speed limit tayo lalo na sa national roads, kung kaya nga gawin na 100 lang,” he said.
