Land Transportation Office-9 Director Aminola P. Abaton has directed all district officers and senior transportation and regulation officers to intensify the campaign against colorum  vehicles and those with illegal body structure.

Abaton said he has received information that some private vehicle owners use their units to transport passengers going to different places in Mindanao without any franchise from the Land Transportation Franchising Regulatory Board.

Abaton strictly advised his officers to implement the law so that accident will be prevented.

“We have to implement the law with sound judgement and save the people from accident,” Abaton said.

Another directive issued by Abaton is for his officers to advise vehicle owners not to  change and modify the body structure of their vehicles or  change color their without clearance from LTO-9 or the Highway Patrol Group 9 so that harsh offenses and penalties will be avoided.

Morever, Abaton directed his district officers not to entertain any individual who claims to have been appointed by higher office.

He said they (district officers) should not be disturbed or their job be interfered by any the “bogus” person.

“You should continue the  quality time management  and efficient delivery of services to the people,” Abaton said. — Allen Abastillas
