During the celebration, it is anticipated that volume of people would flock to public and private cemeteries, hence, traffic congestion is expected.

Thus, Regional Director Edilberto D. Tayao issued a memorandum, directing the District Engineers to activate a composite team including an anchorman, who will aid the traveling public on strategic locations within their respective areas of jurisdictions, particularly roads leading to public and private cemeteries from October 30 to November 3.

Director Tayao also instructed the DEOs to submit a situational report every 6 hours to monitor the flow of traffic and determine what areas need more attention.

The memorandum also emphasizes that traffic service maintenance particularly provision of informative/regulatory warning signs or traffic advisory, should also be vigorously
