CITY OF TABUK — The Provincial Land Transportation Office here had collected P26.3 million in 2018, surpassing its P24.7M target collection.
 LTO-Kalinga Head Jenelyn Angog reported their office’s collection performance continues to climb due to strict enforcement of traffic laws. More traffic enforcers from the police and Public Order and Safety Office (POSO) had been deputized to strictly enforce traffic laws.
“We need to intensify our enforcement operation to educate drivers and motorists to comply with traffic regulations,” Angog said.
She warned road apprehensions shall be more intensified as soon as the breath-analyzer equipment are available to check on drunk drivers.
She called on the public to bear the inconvenience from road inspections explaining this prompts compliance of driving requirements to assure public safety.
On top of revenue generation, the agency’s primary mandate is to ensure road safety of the public, Angog added.
The stern traffic drive has been more aggressive following reports that road accidents top the causes of physical injuries in the province, Angog said.
 In a related development, LTO provincial office has leveled-up with its online processing for the issuances of driver’s license and vehicle registration. — (JDP/LL-PIA CAR, Kalinga)
