No parking space, no car.

In a bid to address the issue of traffic congestion in Metro Manila, Sen. Sherwin Gatchalian has asked President Duterte to certify as urgent the proof-of-parking-space bill.

Gatchalian’s call came after President Duterte’s order during his fourth State of the Nation Address to reclaim all public roads that are being used privately by some establishments.

“Passing this bill will be a big boost to the administration’s campaign of reclaiming public roads and help ease the perennial traffic woes we are experiencing in Metro Manila,” Gatchaian said in a statement.

“I hope President Duterte will certify this bill as urgent as it is very much aligned with his vision of alleviating the constant struggles of the commuting public,” he added.

Senate Bill 368 would only allow individuals and businesses in Metro Manila to purchase vehicles after the execution of an affidavit confirming that they have acquired, either through purchase or lease, a parking space for the vehicle sought to be purchased.

The bill also mandates the Land Transportation Office, the Metro Manila Development Authority, and local government units to conduct frequent ocular inspections of major and minor thoroughfares across the National Capital Region to remove illegally parked vehicles and to punish vehicle owners who refuse to comply with the law.
