MANILA – The city government of Manila on Wednesday launched a crackdown against ''kuliglig'' vehicles plying the city's major roads.

Manila Traffic and Parking Bureau (MTPB) chief Carter Logica said the seized vehicles will be impounded in an area near the Manila North Cemetery. Their owners face a P500 fine.

MTPB personnel targeted kuliglig and unregistered tricycles along Recto Avenue.

Logica said the city government bars kuliglig, tricycles, and pedicabs from plying the city's 46 primary roads. However, these light vehicles are allowed still allowed to use secondary roads.

The city government also requires tricycles and pedicabs to undergo registration. Tricycles and pedicabs should also be painted with a color designated to their respective routes. – report from Noel Alamar, dzMM
