Land Transportation Office-Region VI (LTO-6) Director Roland Ramos recently urged local motorists to abide by traffic rules.
“Abide by the road and safety laws, and obey all other traffic rules,” he said.
Ramos also encouraged drivers to have their vehicles registered, noting his agency has been cracking down on the practice.
He added, LTO-6 has endorsed the documents of over 500 violators, with 382 from Bacolod City.
The LTO-6 director noted, operations have taken place along the Bacolod-Silay Airport Access Road, where sugarcane trucks were parked; along with Barangay Banago, where 45 vehicles were impounded for illegal parking and another 16 for obstructing the road.
Meanwhile, LTO-Bacolod chief Renato Novero said the process to register a motor vehicle and the issuance of driver’s licenses is “more efficient.”
He also discouraged the public from patronizing fixers, who currently operate outside the local LTO facility.
However, last year, Novero said fixers would be barred from entering the office, adding, “Fixers were already minimized even before President Duterte assumed office.”
Novero also said he had confronted the fixers at the time, stating, “I immediately met with those remaining fixers and told them the directives of the president.”/WDJ
