LTFRB 2 posts P130-M income in 2009

Tuguegarao City (23 February) -- Despite manpower deficiency, the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) said it has earned a total of P130 income in 2009.

In her report during the ?Ulat ng Bayan? which was conducted by the Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC), Director Florecita R. Cuesta said the income was derived from the payments of supervision and regulatory fees which include filing, licensing, franchising fees as well as penalties.

Meanwhile, Cuesta said their office is now on the process of evaluating all the public utility vehicle terminals in the region in line with their mandate to enforce the Smoke Free Laws in Public Conveyances & Terminals.

Under LTFRB Memorandum Circular 2009-36 which took effect on January 7, 2010, all Public Utility Vehicles (PUVs) and Land Transportation Terminals are required to observe the Smoking Prohibition and to prominently post No Smoking Signs in their authorized units and premises.

Both the operator and the driver have a duty to post the said signs and to warn passengers against smoking. Failure to comply with this duty leads to a fine of up to P10,000 and cancellation of the franchise.

According to the Memo Circular, LTFRB will be partnering with the government, civil society, and the private sector, except those representing the interests of the tobacco industry.

This policy seeks to protect the commuting public from exposure to second hand smoke which will lead to lung cancer, heart attack, asthma attack, and other respiratory problems. (PIA 2) [top]
