“Reserved parking” signs in front of several establishments were also seized during the clearing operation.

The Quezon City Public Affairs Department said that some establishments were warned against allotting exclusive parking spaces as it violates the city’s existing ordinance.

Meanwhile, a similar activity was also conducted in front of the Balintawak Market where several tricycles and vendors were cleared from the sidewalk on Tuesday morning.
