LTO and LTFRB checks for defective buses

To ensure the safety of all the bus passengers going to the provinces this Holy Week, the Land Transportation Office (LTO) and the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) have joined forces with Hino Philippines Engineers to check up on buses in the terminals:

Victory Liner Bus

At the Araneta Bus Terminal, a team led by LTO Director for Law Enforcement Services Edgar Cabase, Sr. are keeping an eye against worn out tires, defective lights, cracked windshields, and other internal and external vehicular defect that may lead to malfunctioning of the bus unit and may eventually lead to accidents that can claim the lives of both the bus driver and his passengers.

Wouldn’t it be nice if they do a surprise inspection rather an announced one? We hope this move will reduce the bus accidents this Holy Week.

  1. Bakit po tuwing peak season lang nagkakaroon ng inspection sa mga provincial busses?

    Bakit hindi po kayang gawin na palagi, marami sa mga bus driver na pinapabyhe ang bus kahit out line, out of route, pag nahuli kami po ang kawawa at ang lisensya namin ang nadudungisan at na sususpinde, hindi po dapat ang may ari ang may pananagutan, kung kami naman po ay hindi susunod ay maapektuhan naman po ang paghahanap buhay kung kami ay mapapg initan at maaring ikatanggal pa sa trabaho.

    Yon po’ng mga driver na gumagamit sa ipinagbabawal na gamot at mga bumibyahe ng lasing, pang peak season lang po ba ang inspection, hindi po ba pweding sa garahe palang mag conduct na ng isnpection??? Drug test, liquor test, at inspection ng mga papeles ng bus.

    Sana po kung magkakaroon ng katuparan ito ay unahin ang paglilinis sa SILVER STAR SHUTTLE AND TOUR INC. siguradong maraming positive dito
