LGU Solano cracks down on noisy bikes
With a series of complaints on noisy mufflers of motorbikes and tricycles in Solano town, traffic enforcers with the assistance of Solano police intensified the apprehension of noisy motorcycle users. Modified mufflers of motorbikes and tricycles have long been a nuisance not only to the residents of Solano but also to other parts of the province.
Noel Sopongco, Licensing Officer of Solano, said that the apprehensions is stated in Municipal Ordinance No. 2014-04-8, authored by Councilor Rogelio Salunat and co-authored by Councilors Albino Danguilan and Eduardo Tiongson, also known as “Anti-Muffler Modification Ordinance.” It is recalled that the Provincial Peace and Order Council (PPOC) strongly recommended the passage of a legislation advocating the use of silencers on motorcycles.
It has been observed that there are many motorbikes and tricycles that produce loud noise which disturb and irritate people especially late at night. Owners of motor vehicles intentionally remove the silencer of the muffler and replace or modify the muffler to produce loud noise without regard to the inconvenience and irritation it causes to the people.
Violators of this ordinance do not cover only riders/owners of motorcycles but also include dealers of modified mufflers and shops facilitating modifications.
However, Sopongco said that caught riders refuse to identify the dealers and shop owners are.
Apprehended riders will have their driver’s license confiscated and unregistered motorcycles will be impounded. These will only be given back upon settlement of the imposed penalties and upon abiding on the said Ordinance.
Riders will be penalized with at least P1,000 or two days community service to P2,500 or 2 weeks in prison or both at the discretion of the Court. Shops and dealers will be penalized with P1,500 to P2,500 or cancellation of business permit.
With the number of apprehended violators since January 2015, only 14 individuals had settled their offense. #bg
