The Land Transportation Office (LTO) has activated its Oplan Biyaheng Ayos: Undas with a random drug testing of public utility vehicle (PUV) drivers and conductors before they leave the terminals.

According to LTO Assistant Secretary Edgar Galvante, bus drivers are asked to first surrender their licenses before undergoing the drug test.

If he tested positive, LTO will immediately confiscate his license to prevent him from driving. The driver will also be subjected to confirmatory test.

“Kung negative sa confirmatory test, isasauli din ang lisensya ng driver upang makapagmaneho. Pero kung nag-positive sa nasabing drug test, mananatiling kumpiskado ang kanyang lisensya. Hindi papayagang magmaneho ang driver hangga’t hindi napapatunayan na wala nang bahid ng droga sa kanyang katawan,” Galvante added.

Apart from this, LTO will also keep an eye on abusive taxi drivers and other PUV operators with .enforcers to be deployed for Oplan Isnabero.

As early as Monday, there were already intensified motor vehicle roadworthiness inspections and bus terminal inspections. These will determine if vehicles are fit to run during Undas season.

“Marami sa ating mga kababayan ang magtutungo sa kani-kanilang mga probinsya at sa mga sementeryo upang dalawin ang puntod ng kanilang mga namayapang mahal sa buhay o para magbakasyon ngayong Undas. Nagkataon ding long weekend. Nararapat lamang na tiyakin na makakarating sila sa kanilang patutunguhan ng ligtas, komportable at walang aberya sa lansangan,” the LTO chief added.
