Implementation of bike ordinance postponed in Mandaue
The city government of Mandaue has deferred the enforcement of its bicycle ordinance, which was scheduled to be implemented next week.
The move will give the Traffic Enforcement Agency of Mandaue (TEAM) more time to educate the public on the bicycle ordinance, said City Councilor Jimmy Lumapas, the principal author of the City Ordinance No. 15-2020-1582 or the Comprehensive Bicycle Ordinance of 2020.
Lumapas said he will talk to the head of TEAM, which already started the information drive on the said ordinance four days ago, to discuss the deferment and the implementation. (https://bit.ly/2Xe58IF)
The ordinance penalizes cyclists caught without helmet, reflectorized vest or any bright colored t-shirt, and front and rear reflector or blinker with P50.
On one hand, a fine of P100 will be imposed on cyclists caught counter-flowing, back riding, overloading, driving outside the designated bike lanes and those without brakes.
