NAVAL, Biliran – “It pays to follow transportation laws, rules and regulations to avoid paying big penalties” thus said the head of the Land Transportation Office (LTO) here in Biliran province during the Kapihan at Pulong-pulong ng Bayan over Radyo Natin-Naval.

“I pity motorists who pay big penalties as high as P10,000”, Grace M. Corsido, provincial director of LTO-Biliran, referring to penalty imposed for violation of driving an unregistered motor vehicle.

Carsido strongly urged the owners of vehicles like motorcycles, private utility vehicles, public utility buses and jeepneys to register their vehicles and to renew it if it is already expired to avoid paying big penalties.

She also urged the motorists to bring always their driver’s license evertime they drive since driving without a license bears a penalty of PP3,000 plus driving unregistered vehicles bears a penalty of P10,000, based on the joint Administrative Order No. 2014-01 of th Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC) which LTO is part of.

Some of the common violations and their corresponding penalties under AO No. 2014-01 include failure to carry drivers license, ceritificate of registration or official receipt while driving a motor vehicle – P1,000; failure to wear the standard protective helmet or failure to require the backrider to wear the standard protetive motorcycle helmet – P1,000; failure to attach or improper attachment and tampering of authorized motor vehicle license plates or third plate sticker-P5,000.

“Our office is very much willing to extend assistance to motorists and vehicle owners in securing or renewal of driver’s license and the registration and renewal of registration of vehicles” Carsido said.

She further said that her office strictly adheres to the LTO citizen’s charter where there are time elements that are followed for the convenience and fast transaction of their clients in their office.

The lady LTO chief also proudly announced that the continued conduct of apprehensions within the area of responsiblity conducted by the LTO law enforcers have greatly help improved their performance from January to June 2015.

  1. No one ever got killed or injured simply because a vehicle was not registered but it carries the highest penalty..Far to many get killed and injured in motorcycle accidents not wearing a helmet but the fine is very little.. And about 90% of all motorcyclists dont wear one….
    This means very few ever get fined for not wearing one..
    This proves the govt is NOT interested in safety only easy money to collect.

  2. I agree with you John Pimm. This is because theres a rampant corruption inside the LTO Naval Office. When you apply for license.. The answers are sold.. You have just to pay 500 pesos for the answers.

  3. Ang mga manguha ug license wala sad mga seminar.. Kay pabayaron lang kang sir.

    Ug nganong kining mga LTO permi ra man manakop sa Naval. Adto mo sa Caibiran. Para mag maan mo. Mga isog man kaha mo.

    Puro lang mo pang kwarta.

  4. I dont think you can totally put the blame of motorcyclists and the passengers not getting fines because of possible ” not correct procedures” at Naval LTO… Its nationwide. Even the chairman of the Manila MMDA was seen as passenger on a motorcycle not wearing a helmet.. but his “enforcers” will fine you for something as dangerous as parking in a loading zone . No one cares about safety…. Its only collecting money that counts..
    Why do the police totally turn a “blind eye” to motorcyclists and passengers not wearing helmets..?? Surely that should be part of their job.?Just look anywhere here in Biliran or even elsewhere and every day you see a rider and up to 6 passengers on a motorcycle edesigned for 2 .. ALL wearing no helmets and the driver sitting on the fuel tank feet dangling in mid air with almost no control of the motor bike… But who cares .?/ NO ONE… most families have 8 or 10 kids so loss of one or 2 is not a big problem.. Just make replacements.
