DPWH uses pink colored markings to control illegal parking along Isabela road

ISABELA, Philippines- Bright pink-colored line markings were applied by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) to control blatant parking of vehicles along Santiago-Tuguegarao Road (STR) in Roxas, Isabela.

In a report, District Engineer Reynato M. Ubiña of the DPWH-Isabela Second District Engineering Office (DPWH-ISDEO) said that experimental use of pink-colored paint aims to call the attention of motorists, who normally ignore the conventional white edge markings and rampantly park along roads and sidewalks.

“We painted the edge lines in pink, which we think is more noticeable and will catch the attention of the motorists. The bright-colored edge lines will show the limits of the road boundaries, separating the sidewalks intended for pedestrians. This will also ward off illegal vendors loitering along the national road,” explained Ubiña.

In the monitoring conducted by DPWH, the application of pink edge lines gain positive results as traffic congestion along the road stretch was significantly reduced. PIA
