UNTV News   •   December 12, 2017   •   5222


MANILA, Philippines – The Land Transportation Office (LTO) awarded to the German company, Trojan Computer Forms Manufacturing Corporation and JH Tonnjes Joint Venture on December 1 the more than P1-billion contract for the production of new license plates.

According to LTO Executive Director Attorney Romeo Vera Cruz, the agency plans to begin distribution of more than 3-million license plates on backlog in March of 2018.

These will cover motorists who applied for registration of their vehicles from the period of July 2016 to December 2017.

The first batch of applicants who might receive the new license plates includes about 1.7 million motorcycle riders and over 1.5 billion drivers of various vehicles.

“We hope that by March next we will start issuing this plates. It’s not one-time, we will start the issuance because we will be producing this plates,” LTO Executive Director Atty. Romeo Vera Cruz said.

Aside from the 3-million backlog, the LTO also vowed to issue license plates to motorists who are applying for the registration of their vehicles next year.

According to LTO, the new license plates will have a unique security feature.

The agency also promised not to impose additional fees for vehicle registration.

Meanwhile, the LTO awaits the decision the Commission on Audit (COA) and Supreme Court will release regarding the more than 700-thousand unused vehicle plates after its supplier failed to pay import duties.

“While the notice of disallowance in COA remains unresolved as well as the case in Supreme Court, were waiting for the resolution,” LTO Executive Director Atty. Romeo Vera Cruz said.

The LTO vowed to do all it can to resolve the problem in the license plates of new vehicles. – Joan Nano | UNTV News & Rescue

Traditional jeepney drivers na pumapasada nang walang QR code, huhulihin – LTO

MANILA, Philippines – Nagbabala ang mga kawani ng Land Transportation Office (LTO) na huhulihin nila ang traditional jeepney drivers na pumapasada nang walang naka-paskil na QR code.

Ang QR code ay patunay na kabilang ang isang jeepney unit sa mga pinayagan nang magbalik-operasyon sa gitna ng community quarantine.

Ibinibigay ito sa jeepney driver kung kasama sila sa listahan ng mga operator at driver na pinahintulutang magbalik-pasada. Makikita ang listahang ito sa website at social media account ng Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB).

“Tini–check namin y’ong QR code na ‘yan ng LTFRB. Na-download na nila, so, ‘yan, naka-display na ngayon sa jeep. Plus y’ong protocol natin: social distancing, thermal, face mask,” ani Retired Col. Rolando Abelardo, ang team leader ng LTO mobile 102 Central Office.

Samantala, limang pampasaherong jeep ang hinuli sa operasyon ng Inter-Agency Council for Traffic (IACT) ngayong araw sa Malabon City dahil sa sirang gulong at tail light.

“Basta nag-comply lang siguro sila na makakuha ng QR code and then y’ong sasakyan naman hindi naman nila chineck,” ani Col. Rosenso Borja ng IACT Team Barracuda.

Kaya paalala ng mga otoridad sa mga tsuper ng jeep na tiyaking nasa maayos na kondisyon ang kanilang mga sasakyan bago bumiyahe upang makaiwas sa disgrasya. – RRD (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Asher Cadapan Jr.)
