LTO Officially Revoked the Driver’s Licenses of 3 “Kamote” Riders Involved in Public Race

The Land Transportation Office (LTO) region 9 has officially revoked the driver’s licenses of three “kamote” riders involved in public racing.

The incident has been reported to the traffic authorities after a video of irresponsible motorbike riders racing on a public road went popular on social media and drew criticism from the online community. The three, including a YouTuber who videotaped the race, were issued a show cause order.

The LTO-R9 held a hearing against the participants and decided to suspend their driver’s licenses for 90 days while the investigation is completed. A motion recommending the revocation of the same licenses was also forwarded to the honorable Assistant Secretary since he is the only one who has the authority to do so.

The Honorable Assistant Secretary Edgar C. Galvante signed a resolution revoking the licenses of the drivers in the video on September 13, Monday. The resolution was directed to go into effect immediately.

The “kamote” riders were charged with “reckless driving” while operating motorcycles, according to the resolution. Aside from that, they’ve been charged with failing to install motor vehicle registration plates and making unlawful modifications to their vehicles.

“Magsilbi po sana ito ng leksyon at babala sa ating mga motorista na huwag tumulad sa ganitong gawain. Hindi niyo lang po nilalagay sa peligro ang inyong mga sarili, kundi pati na rin ang buhay ng ibang motorista” said Atty. Aminola P. Abaton.
