The memorandum cited that “the total crime incidents of the city has significantly increase mostly due to traffic incidents resulting from intoxication of the victims”. PCOL. Michael M. Pareja, City Director of Iligan City Police Office (ICPO) were advised to enforce RA 10586 or “the Anti-Drunk Driving Act of 2013”, especially during night time.
