Land Transportation Office -9 Assistant Regional Director and concurrenty Regional  Law Enforcement Chief Moh. Yusoph A. Lamping warns public utility jeepneys, buses and vans to check first the road worthiness of their vehicles before driving it to the streets, roads or highways so that accident can be prevented.

Lamping said that motorvehicle owners and drivers must always check first the road worthiness of their units before picking up passengers from terminals.

“Accident can be prevented if drivers regularly check their units and drive safely as a good father of the family,” Lamping said.

He said accident can be dreadful  because it kills people and it can make persons disabled as well as destroy  properties for livelihood  because of recklessness  and irresponsibility on the part of the drivers.

Lamping reminded drivers to carfully drive so that accident can be avoided.

“The fines and penalties for reckless and irresponsible drivers are expensive on their part. Drivers must drive their unit with due diligence,” Lamping said.

Meanwhile, Lamping disclosed that the operations on “nr Records and no registration travel” policy is still ongoing.

He reminded drivers to always bring their certificate of registration.

If  newly acquired vehicle do not have a certificate of registration from  LTO, the owners can use the car insurance documents and  receipt of the motorvehicles where they  bought it.

Lamping warns drivers that LTO- 9 and the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board-9 will conduct joint operations against colorum vehicles. — Allen Abastillas
