San Juan City Police on Thursday cleared obstructions, mostly stalls and ambulant vendors, from sidewalks and major roads in San Juan City.

Col. Ariel Fulo, police chief of San Juan, said N. Domingo and F. Blumentritt Streets, and their sidewalks were occupied by vendors, which rendered them impassable to pedestrians.

The local police Task Force Disiplina began clearing the roads and sidewalks around 3 p.m. Thursday.

“This was in compliance with the directive of National Capital Region Police Office chief Maj. Gen.  Guillermo Eleazar. We are also receiving many complaints about it,” Fulo said.

Fulo clarified, however, that police did not take the vendors’ products or wares.

“We did not take any of their products. We just told them to leave the area to clear the sidewalk,” he said.

Fulo said the police would conduct clearing operations every day to ensure the roads and sidewalks remained passable.
