No registration no travel policy may have been crafted and started to be implemented with good intention, although not very much visible. Under the policy owners of unregistered motor vehicles found to be plying the public highways will be fined PHP10,000.0 and their drivers PHP1,000.00. It is likewise provided that buyers of brand new motor vehicles are given 7-day period to use the motor without fear of being apprehended for violation of the policy.
The Land Registration Office of the Philippines (LTO) obviously disregarded the fact of its being part, if not the main problem, of the very slow process in registration of brand new motor vehicles. In implementing the policy, the LTO seemed to have committed a wrong and profited from it. Owners are being deprived of their right to enjoy the use of their property without any fault on their part and they are being punished for the fault or wrong of others. The policy would have been good if the LTO, being the creator and implementor of the policy, is quick in issuing the registration. LTO itself cannot meet its own 7-day period. Their media propaganda that within the same period the registration will be released to the buyers is a lie. I am one of the many complaining buyers. The public thirsts for a more responsible policy from this agency not a pseudo solution to a problem which they themselves are part.
