CT-TODA renews call for owners of impounded motorbikes to claim their units

THE City of Talisay-Traffic Operations and Development Authority (CT-TODA) has once again called on owners of motorcycles that have been impounded for more than four years to claim their units.

Jonathan Tumulak, CT-TODA head, said that not one has gone to their office to claim a motorcycle or even inquire about their obligations. According to Tumulak, they will issue a second notice on Thursday, January 26, 2023, and a third and last notice next week.

The CT-TODA issued the first notice last week.

He said they will auction the motorcycles to the public within a month to reduce the number of motorcycles in the impounding area.

He said the more than 100 motorcycles were impounded before he joined CT-TODA more than three years ago.

In an earlier report, Tumulak said the motorcycles were impounded for various traffic violations, such as the absence of official receipt (OR) and certificate of registration (CR), expired registration and drivers driving without a license.

He said claimants need to bring their OR/CR and payment for the storage fee, which costs P100 per day or P36,500 annually. (BBT, PJB)
