LTO orders continous crackdown vs overload trucks

LAND Transportation Office (LTO) Chief Assistant Secretary Atty. Vigor D. Mendoza II has ordered all Regional Directors to strictly implement the crackdown on overloaded trucks and trailers in their respective areas of responsibility.

Asec. Mendoza explained that overloaded trucks and trailers threaten road safety and sometimes result in fatal road accidents. Several cases of multiple vehicle damage and multiple fatalities have been recorded in the past due to overloaded trucks and trailers along national highways. 

“Based on the complaints that we have been receiving, overloaded trucks also contribute to road and bridge damage which eventually result in additional expenses for the national government for repairs,” Asec. Mendoza.
