IPINANUKALA ni Senador Sherwin Gatchalian ang pagpapatupad ng toll holiday sa buong North Luzon Expressway habang hindi gumagana ang RFID system.
“My view here is if your system is not working, why charge the consumers? Let’s implement a toll holiday in the entire stretch of NLEX. It’s not only Valenzuela experiencing (sic) here, other LGUs are also experiencing (sic) here,” wika ni Gatchalian.
“Operators are mandated to put perfect or near perfect RFID readers. But if it’s not functioning, then why allow the motorists to feel the inconvenience of that imperfection,” aniya.
Nauna nang hiniling ni Gatchalian, vice chairman ng Senate Committee on Public Services, ang pagsuspinde sa mandatory cashless payment system.
“If the RFID readers are not functioning and if it’s not functioning, then don’t let our motorists feel the brunt of that inconvenience. Let our motorists pass through the highways with complete convenience by suspending the mandatory RFID,” sabi pa niya.
Ang cashless transactions sa mga expressway ay ipinag-utos ng Department of Transportation (DOTr) para mabawasan ang posibilidad ng pagkahawa sa COVID-19.
