Register 4x4
vehicles, LTO orders
BY MARICAR ARANAS

Land Transportation Office-Dumaguete chief, Roland Ramos, yesterday clarified that 4x4 vehicles used for off-road sports, which are not allowed to travel on national highways but should be carried through a trailer truck,  are not exempted from  traffic laws.

Negros Oriental has been a favorite destination for 4x4 off-road competitions among drivers from neighboring provinces, including some from Luzon.

Ramos said he supports this kind of activity as it gives entertainment and can also generate income to local businessmen. It also becomes a welcome development for the tourism industry in the province, he said.

The warning of the LTO, however, came after an owner of a 4x4 vehicle was caught with unregistered vehicle, and the driver evaded the LTO enforcers when asked to stop while traversing the national highway.

He reminded the 4x4 owners that their vehicles are not allowed to be used as service vehicles, because this is not allowed under existing land transportation laws.

Ramos also encouraged the 4x4 club in Negros Oriental to coordinate with any LTO offices whenever they will have competitions, for proper coordination.*MA
