traffic schemes
BAGUIO CITY – Vice-Mayor Daniel Farinas requested that traffic schemes being implemented by the Baguio City Police Office (BCPO) go through council deliberation.
 
The matter was discussed during the regular executive-legislative meeting after the city hall flag-raising ceremonies last Monday.
 
Several city officials were caught unaware of traffic schemes at the central business district, and expressed concern that vehicular snarls may happen at major roads specially with the forthcoming tourist season.
Local and foreign tourists are expected during the Chinese New Year, opening ceremonies and celebration of the Baguio Flower Festival 2014, Philippine Military Academy (PMA) homecoming; all happening in the next days. 
   
Major roads which are in an open-and-close situation due to experimental traffic schemes should be addressed with proper planning with the Transportation and Traffic Management Committee (TTMC) and warning-information to motorists; public utility vehicles and the general public, it was known.
 
Traffic experiments should be implemented for three months before an approval through ordinance at the city council to make it permanent. –juliegfianza
