The Land Transportation Office (LTO) is conducting a 2-day seminar and workshop for its Law Enforcement and Traffic Adjudication officers at its head office in East Avenue, Quezon City today until tomorrow, Friday.
This seminar-workshop is in accordance with Assistant Secretary Edgar Galvante's order to make LTO's Law Enforcement and Adjudication process simple and efficient. LTO Executive Director, Romeo G. Vera Cruz, has said that this is part of Traffic Discipline, one of the LTO's pillar advocacy to make sure that the roads are safe for all.
"The LTO is to come up with a road safety action plan. This Seminar-Workshop is included under the Traffic Discipline Pillar."
In his opening remarks, LTO National Capital Region Regional Director and concurrent Acting Director ng Law Enforcement Service (LES), Atty. Clarence “Chuck” V. Guinto, outlined the importance of doing such workshops and its purpose: “The purpose of this 2-day workshop is to ensure uniformity, same time enforcement and coordinated execution of plans and operations for our law enforcement and resolving of cases involving traffic violations.”
Director Guinto also stressed that the agency is receiving 500 clients a day for adjudication, most of them from Region 3. He also added that the seminar-workshop will be the right venue for brainstorming policies and timely solutions so that motorists who are settling their fines, or those who are contesting (through adjudication) their traffic violations will have faster and smoother transactions.
Traffic Adjudication Service Director Esteban M. Baltazar, has said that, “Our leaders want to transform the LTO into one of the best government agencies. Law enforcers and adjudicators must act with the highest degree of responsibility, integrity, and justice.”
