CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – With the present thrust of the National Government under the Duterte administration to clean the streets of illegal structures and colorum vehicles, the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board regional office 10 (LTFRB 10) conducted surprise apprehensions yesterday in strategic areas in the city.
The LTFRB apprehending team went to Koresco area in Upper Lumbia and apprehended these colorum taxis and other passenger vehicles plying the streets without the required government permits to operate.
LTFRB 10 Regional Director Aminoden Guro had earlier told the media that there will be lots of apprehensions in the streets in the coming weeks for 2020 to get rid of colorum vehicles.
Guro said these illegal operators are denying the government the right taxes and revenues which amounts to millions of pesos, to the detriment of the coffers of the government. These losses in government revenue every year could have been a big help to the people who will enjoy basic services such as medicines in hospitals and other forms of government support system.
Earlier, the LTFRB team also conducted surprise apprehensions in Barangay Canitoan and the operations resulted to the apprehensions of many taxis and private vehicles without the necessary permits to operate.
