The Land Transportation Office (LTO) on Sunday said they penalized some public transport vehicles for failing to follow the 50% passenger capacity amid the coronavirus disease pandemic.

“Marami kaming nahuli, overloading ang charge namin niyan kasi 50% lang ang pinapayagan,” Land Transportation Office deputy director for law enforcement Roberto Valera said over Dobol B TV.

(We’ve pulled a lot of public utility vehicles over. We charged them with overloading because not more than 50% capacity is allowed.)

The Department of Transportation had been mulling an increase in  the passenger capacity of public utility vehicles (PUVs). It said it would be consulting experts to back its proposal.

Asked about the LTO’s plans on colorum vehicles with tinted windows, Valera said they will issue guidelines on this but he did not provide further details.

“‘Yung tinted kasi mayroon na kaming ano, may EO na kami nagawa niyan. For signature na po,” he said.

(For tinted windows, we have an executive order which is ready for signature.)

Further, Valera said they drug tested over 8,000 public transportation drivers in Metro Manila to ensure road safety.

Of the number, 100 tested positive and were placed in rehabilitation centers to prevent accidents. — DVM, GMA News
