Backlog In LTO Plates Addressed

SAN FERNANDO CITY, La Union - The Land Transportation Office (LTO) in Region 1 said yesterday it was laboring through the day and night to address a six-months backlog in the issuance of motor vehicle plates in Pangasinan.

LTO Region1 Director Teofilo ''Jojo'' Guadiz admitted that there was a delay in the release of the license plates at the LTO-Dagupan Office, but assured the public that the backlog is being addressed.

''It's been six months that I had been coming here to follow up on the release of my motorcycle plate, but up to now, they still don't have it,'' said one motorist at the LTO office last Friday.

''With Comelec (Commission on Elections) checkpoints set up during the campaign for the elections, this is really a bad time for us to be driving without license plates,'' said another motorist.

Guadiz said the LTO is doing all it can to expedite the release of the motor vehicle plates.

Meantime, LTO-Dagupan Chief Eric Suriben issued a warning to his staff to refrain from dubious transactions and further delaying the process in the issuance of plates and licenses.

If its militarily acts now, it may face international isolation. …
