LTO conducts surprise inspection

March 11 - 17, 2017

MAASIN CITY - The Land Transportation Office (LTO) has recently conducted a surprise motor vehicle inspection last March 15 (Wednesday morning) which caught violators by surprise and temporarily caused traffic at Tomas Oppus street near NOVO fashion and general merchandise.

According to LTO Head Arnulfo Retes, the random one-hour law enforcement operation was headed by Team Leader Reymar Geraldo.

The inspection conducted by ten (10) LTO enforcers, including two (2) deputized local PNP policemen, served as barometer function on how effective and efficient is the agency’s law implementation program.

“Our law enforcement operation resembles how effective our collection system is because of the number of issued license cards and registered motor vehicles,” Retes said.

During the one-hour surprise inspection, the operation yielded 20 motorists who the LTO claimed have violated the traffic rules.

Based on statistics, most offenses were: delinquent registration, driving without license, no helmet and no seatbelts.

In a related development, the LTO also announced that most license cards of recent LTO-Maasin registrants were already available in their office.

According to Retes, there were 1,300 newly-issued cards ready to be released.

“For those who applied for issuance of LTO cards, we are pleased to say that your cards are available and ready to be released,” the LTO Chief informed SLT.

The LTO is urging the public to secure their LTO license cards, especially the youth and students, and register their motor-vehicles at the LTO office in Barangay Abgao.(By MARK L. RIMAS)
