It was in August this year when Marinduque lone district Rep. Lord Allan Velasco filed House Bill (HB) No. 31 or the “No Garage, No Registration Act.”

The bill aims to reduce traffic congestion, reduce the number of private vehicles on the road, provide safe and uncluttered pathways where people can freely walk to their destinations, and maintain a clean and healthy environment by clearing streets of parked motor vehicles and other similar clutter that reduces the space intended for human and vehicular traffic.

Persons with residential and business addresses in metropolitan areas who wish to purchase a motor vehicle must sign a notarized affidavit proving that they have a parking facility for that motor vehicle, according to the bill.

Metro Manila, Angeles, Bacolod, Baguio, Batangas, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu, Dagupan, Davao, Iloilo, Naga, and Olongapo are listed as “metropolitan areas” in the bill, but the provision is not limited to these areas. The affidavit will be required for motor vehicle registration at the Land Transportation Office (LTO).

Recently, a member of the Facebook group Home Buddies complained on social media about a neighbor parking his car outside their house and putting a plant on the street whenever he is not using it.

The complainant is wondering what law is being violated by the male neighbor’s actions. The Home Buddies member is still checking with their homeowners’ association about the issue. In the last part of the post, the complainant noted: “Sobrang nakakastress lang and ang sakit sa mata.”
