-A A +A

Monday, January 13, 2014

THE Land Transportation Office (LTO) has set two priorities for implementation in Zamboanga Peninsula for this year.

LTO Regional Director Aminola Abaton said the priorities include the implementation of the plate standardization and Republic Act (RA) 10586, otherwise known as the "Anti-Drunk and Drugged Driving Act of 2013," which will take effect by the first quarter of this year.

Abaton said they will start the issuance of new license plate to vehicle owners, who will register or renew the registration of their vehicles.


He said the new license plate has security features and bar codes containing selective data inputs and tamper-free.

It also has a reflective sheeting material, making it visible even from wide-entrance angles and up to a distance of 100 feet both daytime and night time, he added.

Abaton said the new license plate is patterned after that of Singapore and some European standards that could easily be removed once installed.

He said the violation of the Anti-Drunk and Drugged Driving Act of 2013 carries stiffer penalties.

He said they are just waiting for the signing of the Implementing Rules and Regulations of RA 10586 in order for them to start the information campaign and its eventual implementation. (Bong Garcia)
