THE Land Transportation Office (LTO) is set to revoke 122 driver’s licenses (DLs) in violation of Republic Act 10586, better known Anti-Drunk and Drugged Driving Act 2013, according to a ranking official of the agency.

Lawyer Clarence V. Guinto, Director of LTO-Law Enforcement Service and concurrent Head of LTO-National Capital Region-West, said the licenses were confiscated from the drivers apprehended while driving under the influence of liquor, marijuana, illegal drugs, and illegal substances.

All these were apprehended in the 1st quarter of 2022.

“The agency is now in the final stage of processing [and] in the next several days, we will release the decision of the agency regarding this matter,” said Dir. Guinto.

The process was done properly by competent people involved in the investigation to ensure all the policy was seriously observed to avoid any suspicions.

“Investigators seriously observed the due process,” Dir. Guinto pointed out.

Guinto stressed that the agency is in serious business in implementing the law to protect everybody, especially the safety of innocent civilians.

Guinto encouraged motorists of private and public vehicles to take extra vigilance by observing and following traffic laws. By Jun I. Legaspi
