LAS PIÑAS City residents can now avail of stickers for the use of the so-called ?Friendship Route? set up to ease traffic congestion along the Alabang-Zapote Road.
Mayor Vergel Aguilar said the stickers will be available starting March 14 during office hours at the Verdant Covered Court in Barangay Pamplona III near the Las Piñas East National High School.
Residents who want to have their cars tagged by city hall should present their vehicle?s original receipt and certificate of registration.
For vehicles bought outside the city, owners must present proof of billing that shows the owner?s address.
For mortgaged vehicles, owners need to present a bank certification of the car?s chattel mortgage and an ID showing the owner?s address.
For company vehicles issued to Las Piñas residents, owners must show a certificate from their company that the car was issued to the person applying for a sticker.
At least 59 subdivisions inside the city are opening some of their streets for the Friendship Route which seeks to reduce the traffic flow along Alabang-Zapote Road, according to the mayor. The route was established in 1996.
The city?s traffic police estimated that about 150,000 to 200,000 cars use the main thoroughfare daily, increasing to about 250,000 vehicles during Fridays and Saturdays.
Public utility vehicles, delivery trucks and vans, school buses, tricycles and motorcycles are not eligible for the friendship stickers, Aguilar said.
He also warned the public against tampering with the stickers, adding that violators would be facing sanctions if they do so.
