The Land Transportation Office-9 has conducted a seminar on the Anti-Distracted Driving Act of 2017 and the Children’s Safety on Motorcycle Act of 2017 at the Zamboanga Ecozone yesterday.

The seminar, which had the theme “Serbisyong Tapat, Mabilis at Makatao,” was held for law enforcers.

LTO-9 Regional Director Atty Aminola Abaton underscored the need for all law enforcers to know the two laws prior to its implementation on July 6.

Based on LTO statistics, at least 2,000 motor vehicle accidents have been attributed to the use of cellphones while driving.

Other countries have reportedly been implementing laws banning the use of cellphones while driving.

“Huli na talaga tayo sa mga batas na ito,” said Abaton.  (Allen Abastillas)
