LTO runs out of registration stickers

MANILA, Philippines--The head of the Land Transportation Office (LTO) Thursday said the agency was experiencing a shortage of registration forms and stickers because of the huge number of newly purchased vehicles.

?The LTO had a large [stock] of stickers just in case we ran out. Unfortunately, that wasn?t enough to meet the influx of new registrants,? LTO Chair Arturo Lomibao said.

Problems over the bidding of the contract for the production of new stickers was also partly to blame.

As a result, Lomibao ordered a moratorium on the apprehension of unregistered new vehicles as well as those whose registration are due for renewal.

This means that traffic enforcers cannot go after new vehicles without LTO stickers and license plates. At the same time, they cannot apprehend owners of vehicles with license plates ending in 1 and 2 who have yet to renew their registration.

The schedule of a vehicle?s registration is based on the last digit of its plate number. Those whose plates end in 1 should have their car registered in January; 2, in February; 3, in March and so on.

Lomibao said the large volume of newly bought vehicles was making it hard for the LTO to keep up with the demand for registration stickers.

In addition, several motorcycle dealers failed to inform the agency about their importation of new vehicles, making it difficult for the LTO to plan ahead.

Lomibao, meanwhile, urged car dealers to work more closely with the agency to make it easier for the LTO to determine how many registration stickers and forms should be manufactured ahead of time to prevent another shortage.

The LTO hopes to come out with additional stickers by next week, he said.

There are close to six million motor vehicles in the country today, the LTO earlier said.
