Physical Injury highest contributor to NV crime volume

Physical Injury highest contributor to NV crime volume Reckless imprudence resulting to physical injury was the highest contributor in the number of cases in the total crime volume from the fourth quarter of 2014 to February of 2015 according to the report of Nueva Vizcaya Police Provincial Office (NVPPO) during the first quarter Provincial Peace and Order Council (PPOC) meeting held yesterday (March 23)at the executive function room.

“A total of 68.02 percent of the total index crime and 49.34 percent of the total crime volume were reckless imprudence resulting to physical injury cases caused the increase in the total crime volume,” said NVPPO Provincial Director of the John D. Luglug.

Bulk of the cases of physical injuries were from road accidents which recorded 1,543 cases where the town of Solano registered 444 cases, the highest number of accidents, followed by the town of Bayombong with 277 and a close record for the towns of Aritao and Bagabag with 226 and 215, respectively.

Motor vehicles and motorcycles remained with the highest involvement in these road accidents which mostly transpired in national roads and caused by human error.

To address these problems on road accidents, Luglug suggested to the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) to include motorcycle lanes in the road widening projects to minimize these accidents.

President of the Liga ng mga Barangay of Solano, Eduardo Tiongson said that there was an existing ordinance on tricycle lanes but was not implemented during the previous administration.

According to a research, it was during the administration of former Governor Rodolfo Agbayani in 1999 that the said ordinance was passed in the Sangguniang Panlalawigan.

Governor Ruth Padilla urged the council to investigate on the failure on the implementation of the said ordinance and ordered the DPWH to put temporary demarcations for motorcycles along the Bayombong to Solano national highway.

Governor Padilla, on the other hand, proposed to the council to pass to the SP for legislation a “no parking ordinance” which prohibits all vehicles to park along the national highway during rush hours.

“Masikip na nga yung daan, nagpapark pa sila sa gilid ng kalsada, minsan double parking pa,” said Governor Padilla. # k r i z e l
