Nine Vehicles Illegally Bringing LSIs Caught At Quezon-Bicol Boundary
ILLEGALLY BRINGING LSIS – Nine vehicles, which were bringing locally stranded individuals (LSIs) were flagged down at a checkpoint at Quezon- Bicol boundary.
According to Inquirer, Land Transportation Office (LTO) Bicol acting operation division chief Glenn Mancera said that the caught vehicles, among them were seven vans and two sports utility vehicles, were tagged “colorum” and was impounded at the impounding facility in Camarines Sur.
The term colorum refers to illegal public land transport in the country.
Meanwhile, the LSIs were inspected for required travel and health certificate clearances.
Mancera added that the nine vehicles were now among the 31 apprehended since Friday. This was after a request by Camarines Sur Interagency Task Force (IATF) to aid them in preventing the entry of private vehicles who illegally bring LSIs in Bicol.
“They (LSI) pay P6,000 each for the trip,”
Due to the entries of LSIs from COVID hot spots, there is a rise of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Bicol. This prompted the IATF to enhance security and quarantine measures in all borders and for the LTO to create the Task Force Colorum
Based on the report, once more, the term colorum refers to privately registered motor vehicles that operate as public utility vehicles without proper authority from LTFRB or the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board.
