The Land Transportation Office-9 Zamboanga City Office has warned tricycle owners to renew their expired registration and franchise to avoid paying high fine and penalty..

District Officer Noel M. Noche disclosed that the fine and penalty for expired registration and franchise to operate as public transport are very high.

“The fine or penalty for a tricycle unit with expired registration and franchise is very high. Once it is expired and not renewed, the penalty is P4,000. Once caught by enforcers operating in the street with all  pertinent documents expired it is another penalty or if it is expired for another few years, they will pay  another fine for the years violation that they did not pay or renew their unit,” Noche said.

He revealed that he has received an information that more than 15,000 tricycles have franchise this year, but as of this moment, my office has gotten records from the Trycycle Adjudication  Board (TAB)  showing that only 4,000 are registered,” Noche said.

Noche advised tricycle owners to renew their units so that they would not pay the high fine and penalty for expired registration and franchise from the Trycycle Adjudication Board (TAB). — Allen Abastillas
