Tabuk motorists advised to renew registration, licenses earlyby Peter A. Balocnit
TABUK CITY, Kalinga, Jan. 10(PIA)-- The Land Transportation Office (LTO) here is calling vehicle and motor drivers and operators to renew early their registration and licenses to avoid penalties.
Provincial LTO Officer Jenilyn Angog advised motorists to renew early to avoid penalties on late renewals. She said a penalty of 50% of the payable fee is imposed on one day late payment and beyond.
“Renewal of registration of vehicles will end up in October with plate ending numbers scheduled on the corresponding month. January for those ending in 1; February for 2; March for 3; April for 4 and so forth,” Angog said.
She said registration of all types of vehicles have to be renewed as well as drivers’ licenses. “This is required by law and an obligation for concerned to exercise good citizenship and contribute to revenue generation,” Angog said.
Last year, LTO-Kalinga generated P9.4 million in revenues from vehicle registration and license fees. LTO recorded several violations of traffic laws against driving without license, operating unregistered vehicle, driving without helmet, and underage drivers which were also the source of their collection.
Meanwhile, to ensure safety of motorists and commuters, Angog requested the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) to put more signages on road points that require caution and warning on danger.
She also asked local government units and the private sector to revive their support by producing and constructing safety measure signages along thoroughfares, hospital and school zones. (JDP/PAB-PIA CAR,Kalinga)
