The Palawan Provincial Board (PB) called on municipalities in the province to put up road sign boards and regulation warning devices for tricycle drivers to prevent them from overcharging passengers.
Board member David Francis Ponde de Leon, in a resolution, said many commuters are complaining about not having any idea regarding correct transportation fares that tricycles and other vehicles should only charge.
“Hopefully, magawan nila ng paraan. Mas marami [na signage], mas inform and safe ang lahat,” Ponce de Leon said Tuesday.
He said the inclusion of the prescribed fares will help commuters protect themselves from abusive drivers.
The sign boards should also include the contact details of the police in case of complaints, Ponce de Leon said.
