Agents from the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency Region 6 (PDEA-6) conducted a simultaneous “Oplan: Harabas” yesterday, targeting the transport terminals in the cities of Bacolod and Iloilo.

PDEA-6 said the activity was conducted in coordination with the local police, Land Transportation Office, Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board, and Highway Patrol Group.

A total of 75 drivers from Bacolod City and 82 from Iloilo City were subjected to a surprise drug test.

As part of the agency’s mandate towards the achievement of a drug-cleared Philippines, “Oplan: Harabas” was organized to undertake measures to prevent drivers under the influence of illegal drugs from causing road traffic accidents, which in turn, will ensure the safety of the riding public.
