Land Transportation Office-9 Director Aminola P. Abaton has advised motorvehicle to always bring their unit registration when driving even  if they do not yet have a vehicle plate.

This, as LTO continues its operations on “No Registration No Travel” policy as the central  office is still resolving the vehicle plate problem.

“Kailangan nila dala-dala ang kanilang registration kung tumatakbo sila kahit walang plate number ang sasakyan nila,” Abaton said.

Abaton  said that while the nationwide problem on license card is pending,  motorvehicle drivers can use the temporary receipt wherever they want to go nationwide because it is allowed by LTO.

According to Abaton  LTO chief Assec. Edgar Galvante will preside a Directors Conference next week at the LTOcentral office to lay down his 100-work program and to tackle solutions on the problems of vehicle plate and  backlog of  license cards.

Abaton warned public utility vehicles, PUJ and PUB, to renew their franchises  and not to operate without a renewed franchise  from the Land Transportation Franchizing Regulatory Board because fines and penalties arer stiff for violators.

“We continuously conduct anti- colorum operations in the region,” Abaton said.

Meanwhile, Asst. Regional Director Moh. Yusoph A. Lamping, concurrently District Officer of Ipil, Zamboanga Sibugay,  disclosed that his office is offline due to computer server bogdown.

Lamping said he had shipped the computerit to the LTO central office for repair by Stradcom,  the  information technology provider of LTO.

Lamping advised motorvehicle owners and drivers to renew their documents to the nearest LTO office in the municipality of Buug and  Pagadian City.

On the other hand, LTO Law Enforcement Chief Allan Makabangkit disclosed that that  there will be a nationwide change of their uniform as the central office will come up with a national standard of uniform nationwide. He also said that traffic violators in Zamboanga City decreased to 44.5 percent compared to last year’s second quarter. — Allen Abastillas
