“But this time we will be apprehending them to a give a better flow of traffic to our commuters,” he said.
He said that they will apprehend jaywalkers and will penalize them with P100 or 4 hour community service.
He said that they will make sure that the overpass in the different areas of the city will be utilized properly by pedestrians.
“The city spends so much on our overpass, but it wasn’t utilized by pedestrians, this time we will make sure that the public will use it,” Poliquit said.
