ORMOC CITY – Ormoc City has recently passed its Road Safety Code, making it the 2nd city in the country to have such, next to Quezon City.
Ormoc Mayor Richard I. Gomez lauded the 15th Sangguniang Panlungsod for finally passing the ordinance. He said its passage is timely as the City had just finished implementing its city-wide traffic scheme, putting order in the city streets in what was previously thought undoable.
“The Road Safety Code is aimed at saving lives, both the motorists and pedestrians,” he said. “One life lost in an accident is one life too many,” said the mayor who is known for implementing the Helmet Law strictly even in far-flung barangays.
