LTO,DOTC-Caraga grateful for the approval of bus drivers’ fixed salary

by Robert E. Roperos

BUTUAN CITY, Jan. 8 (PIA) -- Officials of Land Transportation Office (LTO) and the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) expressed their gratitude with the approval of bus drivers’ fixed salary in Caraga Region as agreed by bus companies.

According to DOTC-Caraga Regional Director Atty. Alim Pangandaman, the lack of fixed salary may be a cause of the high rate of road accidents as drivers.

“’Yan ang dapat gawin upang maiwasan na ang mga komisyon basis kasi nag-uunahan ang mga drivers na makakuha ng pasahero na naging dahilan ng aksidente,” Pangandaman said.

(That is really the best thing to do to get rid of commission-basis because the drivers are competing to get passengers which causes accidents.)

Atty. Pangandaman also said that with this implementation, competition in bus companies will now be minimized. “Thus, accidents will also be minimized,” he added.

“Dahil dito, mawawala na ang kumpetisyon sa mga bus companies at drivers upang lumaki ang kita nila,” Pangandaman said.

(Through this implementation, competition of bus companies and drivers on getting passengers first, will definitely stop.) (PIA-Caraga)
