LTO taps barangays to locate vehicles with expired registration

The Land Transportation Office is currently conducting an aggressive implementation of the “No Registration, No Travel” policy which has so far resulted in the apprehension of hundreds of motor vehicle owners across the country.

According to the LTO, 24.7 million vehicles have expired or delinquent registrations, mostly motorcycles.

Because of this, the LTO has also reported an income loss amounting to P37 billion this year alone. A huge percentage of these delinquent vehicles come from the National Capital Region, Region 3 (Central Luzon ) and Region 4A (Calabarzon).

To further lessen the number of unregistered vehicles, Transportation Secretary Jaime Bautista requested the LTO to look into the possibility of conducting a motor vehicle registration caravan across the country, in coordination with local government units.

This is a move that will hopefully encourage delinquent owners to register their motor vehicles.

According to LTO chief Assistant Secretary Atty. Vigor D. Mendoza II, the barangays will play a huge role in this endeavor. “Through the barangays and their officials, we could tap their assistance to pinpoint their constituents who have failed to register their vehicles.

By doing a motor vehicle registration caravan, we at the LTO can show that we’re not just for enforcement [of laws]. We will be going to bring the services of the LTO closer to our clients.”

Part of the planned motor vehicle registration caravan, according to Mendoza, is the effort to simplify the entire registration process, especially for LTO clients who are facing difficulty in using the agency’s online platform.

“This is extra effort for us in the LTO but all our struggles will be worth it because we’re talking about the roadworthiness of vehicles [on the road]. Besides, it’s also the LTO’s mandate,” said Mendoza.

He also urged owners of motor vehicles with expired registrations to visit the LTO in order to avoid impoundment of their vehicles which corresponds to a P10,000 penalty plus impounding fee.
