MANILA- The Quezon City Council will study the need for imposing sticker fees to owners of public utility tricycles and private vehicles passing through private subdivisions.
A city resolution introduced by Councilor Eric Medina calls on the City Planning and Development Office (CPDO) and the Tricycle Franchising Board (TFB) to conduct a study on the fees collected if these are income-generating in nature.
"These fees are not income-generating but merely for identification purposes only," Medina said, noting that he has been receiving reports that some subdivisions charge as much as P500 for sticker fees.
"The amount being collected is indeed a burden to motorists, especially to tricycle drivers who are merely dependent on their measly income," Medina said.
He added that subdivision owners should come up with board resolutions on the right amount of sticker fees that should be collected.
