LTO acquires device to instantly trace traffic violators

Tacloban City (November 2) -- Thanks to Land Transportation Office's Traffic Violation System, gone are the days when it takes days or weeks before transport violators are traced.

LTO 8 Regional Director Raul Aguilos, during the initial meeting of the Regional Council for Road Safety early this week, showed the members a hand-held device which he called the Traffic Violation System (TVS) device.

Once all the traffic enforcers are equipped with TVS, Director Aguilos said that the public could expect the level of road safety to go really up. Of course, Director Aguilos said that the hand-held gadget is quite expensive but it is a necessity if the safety of the road users and travelers are to be insured.

Under the query facility of the TVS, and with the use of a hand-held device, an LTO traffic officer can interconnect with the LTO-IT System's database to obtain the information like license number; name and birth date of driver; license expiry date; MV plate number, MV file number, engine and chassis number, registration date, MV classification, color of MV, fuel type, etc. Apprehension and alarm record/s tied up to a specific driver's license or motor vehicle with historical information up to the 5th most recent apprehension/alarms can also be obtained.
