RESIDENTS in Las Piñas City who own a vehicle can now avail of the 2011 ‘Friendship Stickers’, Mayor Vergel Aguilar announced recently in a bid to ease traffic in the city’s main thoroughfares.
The Friendship Route , which was opened in 1996, is exclusive for the use of bonafide city residents only.
The initial issuance of 2011 Friendship stickers will start on March 14-20, 8-5 in the afternoon at the Verdant Covered Court in Brgy. Pamplona III near Las Piñas East Nat’l High School.
Residents who wish to avail of the free stickers must bring an original and xerox copies of their car’s original receipt and certificate of registration (OR/CR) and for the vehicles whose registered owner’s address is outside of Las Piñas must bring the ff: original and xerox copies of OR/CR, deed of sale, driver’s license, valid ID or proof of billing (power, telephone, water, etc) showing holder’s address as Las Piñas City.
