According to UNTV News, Jojo Garcia, General Manager of the agency, said that drivers of public utility vehicles who have erred “should be banned” since this put a risk to the passengers’ safety.

“We want the riding public to be out of danger and prohibiting habitual traffic offenders is one step to avoid road accidents,”

The general manager also appealed to the operators not to allow drivers with multiple violations roam the national roads in Metro Manila.

“We encourage PUV operators to exercise their authority and bar their errant drivers from holding the steering wheel,” 

As per the report, Garcia repeated and clarified that the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority is an enforcement agency only and will have to wait for the guidelines from the Land Transportation Office (LTO) to capture the PUV drivers with many violations.

The agency added that it will also include private vehicles drivers and owners with three or more violations of the same offense.
