Domogan warns: No let-up in Baguio’s smoke-belching campaign

Nov 27, 2015 @ 13:56

There will be no let-up in Baguio City’s anti-smoking belching operations despite the expected influx of tourists in the city this coming Christmas holidays.

Thus warned Baguio City mayor Mauricio Domogan amid fears raised by several sectors that the city’s intensified operations against smoke belchers might drive away tourists, especially those who have vehicles.

“We will not suspend the operations of the Roadside Inspection, Testing and Monitoring Team (RITMT),” Domogan declared in a Sunstar article.

“We hope that motorists will comply with the city’s clean air ordinance, it is for the welfare of everyone,” he added.

To protect motorists from abusive city hall personnel, Domogan urged the public to report members of anti-smoke belching teams who are disrespectful, extort money or conduct improper roadside tests.
“The city government does not tolerate abusive law enforcers, we will make sure that we will investigate them if there are any complaints,” he said.
