The City Council on its regular session last Wednesday approved a resolution calling officials of the Land Transportation Office (LTO) to look into the rampant stealing of stickers in vehicle plates mostly motorcycles.
Councilor Vincent Paul Elago, proponent of the resolution, noted several motorcycle owners have complained about the disappearance of their stickers in the vehicles by unscrupulous individuals who could be selling the stickers to owners of colorum vehicles.
Elago stressed the need for the LTO officials to coordinate with the traffic police to set up checkpoints in strategic areas of the city to inspect the registration from drivers of motorcycles and other vehicles.
“The widespread vanishing of stickers in motor vehicles is very clear will land in colorum vehicles. The unscrupulous vehicle owners are those who do not want their vehicles registered because they will have to spend more than a thousand pesos compared to stickers which they will only pay for a few bucks,” Elago emphasized.
The councilor said the stealing of stickers is one of the modus operandi of these dishonest and crooked individuals preying on hapless legitimate vehicle owners.
