83 San Fernando enforcers to be deputized by LTO
Some 83 traffic enforcers from the San Fernando City’s Public Order and Safety Coordinating Office (CPOSCO) will be deputized by the Land Transportation Office in Region 3 before the end of July.
With the CPOSCO enforcers, the LTO is also set to deputize members of the San Fernando City Police Office and the regional Highway Patrol Group, officials said.
LTO Regional Director Eduardo De Guzman said the deputies would have the power to confiscate driver’s license and even impound vehicles of motorists caught breaking traffic laws or committing violations.
In a news release, CPOSCO focal person Darius Hizon welcomed the development and assured safeguards within their department to prevent abuses.
He also guaranteed continuous training and seminars of the enforcers aimed at helping the motorists and ease the traffic conditions in the city.
CPOSCO is gearing up for a joint operation with the LTO, PNP, and HPG to assure motorists are obeying traffic laws and observing proper road courtesy and etiquette.
