CITY OF TABUK, Kalinga – The Land Transportation Provincial Office had collected P5.009 million in the first two months of the year overshooting its collection for the same period last year.
Provincial Land Transportation Officer Jenelyn Angog reported that collection for the period last year was P4.437M or an increase of P662, 000 this year.
Angog attributed the remarkable collection performance of to intensified information education campaign of the agency and more aggressive law enforcement that resulted in high compliance of driving requirements.
She said the deputation of more traffic agents from the police, Public Order & Safety Office (POSO) and LTO greatly improved enforcement of traffic regulation and order in the province. More car owners and drivers are now securing proper documents from LTO.
With the inspiring collection performance in January and February, Angog is confident LTO-Kalinga can achieve its collection target of P24.7M for 2018, which is 3% higher than last year’s goal.
LTO mobile check points shall continue to be enforced to check-on violators since road accidents top the causes of physical injuries in the province, Angog said. /(PIA Kalinga)
