Do not remove warning signs

December 3 - 9, 2016

MAASIN CITY - The government’s construction agency (DPWH-SLED) appealed to the general public, especially the residents in the communities where they have on-going projects, not to destroy, throw, or worse, steal early warning devices meant to keep motorists safe.

This developed as a growing number of recent traffic accidents along national roads were caused by the lack of prior warning signs and devices.

Pedestrians, passengers and drivers of motor vehicles must be forewarned of the risks while a road widening project is in progress through visible signs, structures and symbols, their installation a must for contractors to place in their respective projects, explained Engr. Allan Eway, OIC-Assistant District Engineer.

Eway said he had already raised this matter to the concerned contractors, and he quoted them as saying that they had been replacing lost signs even as these will most likely be stolen again.

DPWH maintenance head, Engr. Gideon Sacro, also called on residents in barangays where roads are being widened, not to damage early warning gadgets, imploring also the help of barangay officials to ensure that the safety devices will serve their purpose.(By MARK L. RIMAS)
