LTO goes after abusive taxi drivers, again

The Land Transportation Office launches Oplan Isnabero! News like these is of course a sweet ring of the bell but if the trend is just turning round and round in a vicious cycle, it's a different story. It could be just another piece of dismay.
LTO Oplan Isnabero
So much so, if the program is only active at the initial phases.

A lot of us got tired of these kinds of taxi drivers in the metro. Let's hope that Director Mohammad Yusoph Lamping of LTO’s law enforcement service is out there to really ensure that his men will really impose / implement the rules continuously, not fading into oblivion as days pass by.

This has been the trend, there's no denying.

The Land Transportation Office (LTO) warned the abusive taxi drivers to beware as LTO personnel are out there to observe and apprehend them.

Lamping said:
Iniikot natin ‘yung different malls in Metro Manila, ‘yung mga commercial area, at ‘yung lahat na may pampublikong sasakyan, taxi man yan bus, jeep o FX para mabigyan ng proteksyon yung ating mananakay laban sa mga [taxi na] hindi nagpapasakay at umiiwas sa pasahero
Apela natin sa mga taxi driver at sa mga transport operator na ‘wag mamili ng pasahero. Pag nasa taxi bay na po iyan ay pasakayin na ‘yung mga nakapila na mga ta
Sa observation natin ngayon, mukhang kulang din ‘yung mga taxi lalo na pag sa hapon at gabi especially around rush hour mga 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
This reminds me of a reading related to dynamic transport supply and demand management. Anyways, let the government perform its roles.

Whatever turnout this effort would bring in, the erring or apprehended drivers will be fined with - "P1,700 plus a 45-day revocation of the driver’s license.", as per Lamping's statement.

You may report such abusive taxi drivers or operators to LTO via its hotline number 927-1851 or text 0998-9768-273.
