Bawal rumaket! Francis Zamora suspends pay parking in San Juan streets


Motorists can no longer pay to park in the streets of San Juan City after Mayor Francis Zamora declared them as “no parking zones.”

Zamora on August 1 issued Executive Order 7 suspending pay parking in all streets of San Juan.

The mayor subsequently banned parking along the city’s streets following the Department of Interior and Local Government’s order for local governments to clear roads of obstructions.

Among the streets declared as no parking zones are: Annapolis St., Eisenhower St., Club Filipino Ave., Connecticut St., Missouri St., Xavier St., Grant St., Washington St., Madison St., Pinaglabanan St. and Santolan Road.

Also covered by the EO are all other streets in San Juan used as pay parking by the city government or barangay.

Zamora authorizes the Traffic Management and Parking Office, Task Force Disiplina, Traffic Police, barangay officials and lupon tagapamayapa of all barangays in San Juan to apprehend violators of the EO and initiate the towing of vehicles obstructing the traffic flow.
