The House of Representatives approved for third and final reading the House Bill 8419 which aims for Land Transportation Office (LTO) to release bigger plates for motorcycles. KAMI learned that the proposed law will be issuing plates that can be readable up to 12 meters.
219 members of the House approved the proposed law and no one opposed it. The LTO is also eyeing for a data base for those registered motorists to help if ever any investigation occurs.
Meanwhile, in a report by GMA News, the proposed law orders every motorcycle owners to give them notice five days after they have sold their motorcycles. The penalty for non-compliance will be P5,000 up to P20,000.

“POTEK! hindi nyo pa nga na rerelease ang lumang plaka, may bago nanamang katarantadohan pinggagawa nyo”
“Atupagin nyo panu mabigay yung mga plaka ng mga nka temporary plate. Hanggang ngayon wala prin tpos gagawa pa kayo ng kalukohan”
“Maniniwala lang ako pag na-release na yung bagong plaka ng sasakyan namin, 2005 pa yun, bayad na.”
