The Land Transportation Office has asked the Department of Science and Technology to inspect their new license plates.
During the hearing at the House Committee on Metro Manila Development, LTO Executive Director Giovani Gonzales said that this move is in line with the complaint they’ve been receiving that allegedly the new plates are easily bendable and are of poor quality.
Aside from the DOST, they also sought the help of a car manufacturer for a specific car because the cause maybe because of a broken bumper and not because of the license plate’s low quality.
In relation to this, DOTC Usec. Lotilla confirmed that the Commission on Audit has already issued a “notice of disallowance” on the advance payment of more than Four hundred million pesos to a Dutch firm, the supplier of the said license plates.
However, Lotilla said that they need to review first the notice of disallowance and what steps they’ll have to take after. (with DZRH Leth Narciso-Abinales)
