City Police Office is planning to implement “Color Coding” on vehicles within the city in relation to Enhanced Community Quarantine due to CoVid-19.
Police Colonel Marion Balonglong, City Police Director, told Palawan Daily News that he will talk to Provincial PNP with regards to this matter in order to have a system and special lane on the vehicles of front liners including the police, ambulance, fire trucks, government vehicles even the media.
“Color coding nalang para kapag malayo palang is inner lane na kayo para hindi rin mag-congest ‘yung mga motorist natin sa mga check point,” Balonglong said in an interview.
The plan will be implemented as soon as they have discussed the matter to have uniformity in the city and in the province.
“Tulad ng sasakyan ng media is malayo palang nakita mo na kung anong kulay ang papayagan, mas maganda kung parehas ang color coding ng city at province of Palawan para mabilis kahit ordinary sticker nalang mag-improvise tayo ng ilalagay,” he added.
Balonglong also clarified that the media is exempted on the implementation of curfew as long as it has something to do with their job on the field.
“Dapat may ID from PCOO pero since malayo tayo at halos kilala naman ang mga media personalities, sinabihan ko ang mga tao ko na padaanin basta ayusin lang din ang pagpapakilala at maganda may ID (media ID) at kumuha ng certification sa opisina n’yo,” said Balonglong.
For now, the city police is continuing to appeal the public to bear with them as they were tasked to man the check points and to strictly implement the order with regards to Enhanced Community Quarantine and curfew.
“Ang instruction ko sa mga tao ko is ‘wag kayong matakot na i-hold ‘yung mga tao dahil gumagawa lang tayo ng diskarte para sa kaligtasan ng taong bayan at ang paghihipit sa mga check point,” Balonglong ended.
