THE Land Transportation Office (LTO) in coordination with local government units (LGUs) will conduct a motor vehicle registration caravan to encourage the 24.7 million delinquent owners to register their units and avoid finding their vehicles in impounding areas.
According to LTO chief Asst. Secretary Vigor Mendoza II, the caravan covers all in the barangay level under the guidance of Transportation Secretary Jaime Bautista.
“Sa level ng barangay ay madali ng malalaman ng ating mga opisyales ng barangay kung sino-sino at ilan sa kanilang mga constituents and hindi rehistrado and mga sasakyan. Kaya tayo po ay hihingi ng tulong sa kanila tungkol dito,” he said.
The move came after the agency’s strict implementation of the “No Registration, No Travel” policy following inventory that close to 25 million vehicle owners are delinquents.
Based on the LTO data, most of the expired motor units are motorcycles where Metro Manila, Central Luzon, and Calabarzon regions have the greatest number of delinquent owners.
“Sa pagsasagawa ng motor vehicle registration caravan, ipinakita naming ng LTO na hindi lang kami puro enforcement. We will be going to bring services of the LTO closer to our clients,” Mendoza stressed.
Part of the planned motor vehicle caravan he added, is the effort to simplify the entire registration process, especially for the LTO clients who are facing difficulty with the use of online platforms.
The LTO’s aggressive implementation of the No Registration, No Travel” policy has so far resulted in the apprehension of hundreds of motor vehicles across the country.
