CONDOR Bicol protests higher fines for traffic violations

The group Concerned Drivers and Operators for Reform (CONDOR) Bicol has declared a transport strike starting 8 A.M. today, October 20 to protest the DOTC-LTO-LTFRB Joint Administrative Order (JAO) Number 2014-01.

Protesters gathered at the Karapatan Bicol office in front of PLDT Albay in Legazpi City.

Said order revises the fines on traffic violations, which Condor Bicol calls "excessive, unjust, arbitrary, and confiscatory."

The order specifies that the fine for driving without a driver's license is P3,000 in addition to the offender being disqualified from being granted a granted a driver's license or from driving a motor vehicle for one year from the payment of the fine.

Reckless driving will be fined P2,000 for the first offense; P3,000 for the second offense; and P10,000 for the third offense.

Failure to wear seatbelts will carry a fine of P1,000 for the first offense; P2,000 for the second offense; and P5,000 for the third offense.

Those who are caught driving an unregistered motor vehicle will be fined P10,000. In addition, if the non-registration has exceeded one month, the vehicle shall be impounded and released only if it has been registered and its corresponding fines and penalties have been paid.

Some of the fines increased by as much as P750.
