Daytime Truck Ban to be Implemented


Under the new ordinance, eight-wheeler trucks with a gross weight of above 4,500 kilograms will be banned from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m on weekdays.

However, this is met by Rodolfo de Ocampo, chairman of the Confederation of Truckers Association of the Philippines and Port Users Confederation president, saying that the ban would be problematic for small and medium enterprises.

Trucks for food deliveries will be exempted, however from the metro-wide ban.

Violating the new rules would immediately cost Php 5000.00 in addition to the truck being impounded.
