Moratorium on issuance of Permit to Transport in Boracay, dropped due to fake PTTs

Written by Gloria Villas

Issuance of Permit to Transport of motorcycles in the island of Boracay will be temporarily suspended.

This is as the Local Government of Malay drops the moratorium and will be effective tomorrow, a Friday.

This followed after the LGU itself discovered that there are fake or doctored permit to transport and stickers of motorcycles in Boracay.

Senior Transportation Regulation Officer Cesar Oczon Jr. of the Municipal Transportation Office has confirmed this, saying that there are indeed some motorists who faked their documents thereby have freely entered the island.

Meanwhile, Oczon said that owners of apprehended units who committed three violations may have their PTTs revoked and will have a penalty.

Oczon added that they also had a temporary suspension last year because of the same reason, the fake and doctored permits.

The Transportation Officer again reminds of the deadline of processing for permit to transport today as the dropping of the moratorium will be effective tomorrow.
