Motor vehicles without license plates can now travel as long as they have the official registration (OR) and certificate of registration (CR).
"Kung makita naman namin na walang plaka pero may OR at CR, idi-dissmiss namin ang huli sa kanila," LTO Assistant Secretary Alfonso Tan Jr. said.
"Liberal naman kami sa ganyan. Kahit hanggang 14 days pwede, ang hinuhuli lang talaga namin yung mga one, two or three months na hindi pa naka rehistro."
The reason behind the said suspension of the rule is due to "unfulfilled document requirements" to plate producers Power Plates Development Concepts Inc and J. Knieriem BV Goes or JKG.
DOTC, LTO and other goverment firms, next time you implement a rule be 100% sure that you can accomodate the numerous inquiries and process that will be thrown at you and not just suspend the rule the moment you find out that you can't. It causes a lot of confusion to us citizens and could be a reason for corrupt officials to take this rule for granted to those who are ignorant of the unexpected suspension.
