LTO: Shortage of license plates, stickers almost over

MANILA, Philippines ? Good news for vehicle owners in Metro Manila and other parts of the country who are still waiting for their license plates or registration stickers.

The Land Transportation Office (LTO) said in a statement that new stocks of vehicle registration materials were being delivered and that it expected the supply situation to normalize very soon.

At the same time, vehicles in Metro Manila which have yet to be issued registration stickers or license plates can continue to ply the metropolis? streets without fear of being apprehended by traffic enforcers.

?The Land Transportation Office has extended until March 31 the moratorium on the ?no plate, no travel policy? for new vehicles and also the non-apprehension of vehicles that had been registered but were not issued windshield stickers and year tags due to the lack of supply,? the agency said in a statement.

LTO Chair Arturo Lomibao earlier announced a shortage in the supply of vehicle registration materials due to the huge number of newly purchased cars, including motorcycles.

He said he expected the situation to normalize by the first week of March and directed traffic authorities not to apprehend drivers whose vehicles were not bearing license plates or registration stickers until March 15.

Lomibao, meanwhile, said he decided to extend the moratorium to March 31 to give vehicle owners time to go to the LTO to pick up their license plates and stickers.

He said that by the end of the month, he expected that the shortage of vehicle registration materials, which according to him was caused by the sudden increase in the number of newly bought cars, would have been addressed.

?The recent crisis involving the shortage of LTO stickers and plates is almost a thing of the past. With supplies continuously coming in and being delivered daily to LTO district offices nationwide, the situation is expected to normalize very soon,? Lomibao said.
