LTO Bohol erring buses

by Rey Anthony H. Chiu

TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol Jan. 20 (PIA) -- The Land Transportation Office in Bohol said bus companies may face sanctions such as cancellation of their franchise if they continue to ignore the law against overspeeding.

A concerned citizen has recently filed a complaint against overspeeding drivers to the Provincial Peace and Order Council (PPOC)

PPOC member and Land Transportation Officer Joel Maloloy-on said that the complaints have sufficient basis based on the investigation that the agency has conducted. Bus units found to be overspeeding have been tagged, he said.

Among the bus companies that have been warned by the LTO were the City Transport and Super Five plying the Tagbilaran City-Tubigon-Tagbilaran City route. Its bus units have been found to be overspeeding along narrow highways, thus putting the lives of their passengers in peril.

At the PPOC meeting during the HEAT Caravan in Antequera the LTO said that it has already warned operators and threatened to suspend their franchises if they are found to have violated the speed limits.

LTO added that they have also issued similar warnings to Clynn and St. Jude Trans operators whose franchise areas are in other parts of Bohol.

Although it is the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) that has direct authority to suspend or cancel land transportation franchises, the LTO has the recommending power that compels the LTFRB to act, sources said. (mbcn/rahc/PIA-Bohol)
