Traffic enforcers in Iloilo traffic hotspot trained on courtesy


Traffic enforcers in one of Iloilo City’s traffic hotspots underwent a recent training on courtesy and decorum in apprehending violators.

Public Safety and Transportation Management Office (PSTMO) head Jeck Conlu said the traffic personnel were reminded to practice proper courtesy at all times to prevent road rage.

Conlu said they focused on teaching the traffic enforcers proper courtesy after receiving many complaints concerning the behavior of traffic enforcers.

Those who underwent the training were assigned to the city’s first “Traffic Discipline Zone” (TDZ) in Senator Benigno Aquino Jr. Avenue or Diversion Road in Mandurriao district.

“Proper courtesy is our priority. It was our first instruction to the traffic enforcers during their lectures and training,” Conlu said (

He added his office has received several complaints concerning the manner of apprehension of traffic enforcers.

Col. Winston de Belen, chief of the Regional Highway Patrol Group (HPG), also reminded the traffic enforcers to practice proper courtesy while doing their job to prevent road rage.

The city government designated Diversion Road as the city’s first “Traffic Discipline Zone” where local ordinances and national road laws will be strictly implemented.

Personnel from the Land Transportation Office (LTO), Philippine National Police (PNP), PSTMO and HPG will monitor the area from 6:30 a.m. until 10 p.m.

Meanwhile, Conlu urged the public to report complaints against traffic enforcers in their office.
