THE Highway Patrol Group in the Cordillera Administrative Region (HPG-CAR) is converging data collection systems with the Land Transportation Office (LTO-CAR) for more efficient processing.
Police Lieutenant Colonel Joe Wilson Denamorca, HPG-CAR chief, explained the motor vehicle clearance system will soon be available online.
“The common interaction happening with the highway patrol is motor vehicle clearance and at this point, starting how many months ago, the national headquarters developed software for a licensed driver to apply for clearance. The only thing that has to be done is to bring the actual vehicle to the HPG for inspection,” Denamorca said.
LTO-CAR started digitalization since the start of this year with its driver’s license processes, motor vehicle registration, law enforcement and traffic adjudication system, and revenue collection system that will soon be part of an e-governance system, with data collected by the HPG incorporated with the LTO nationwide.
Denamorca said once digitally incorporated, HPG will only issue ticket violations.
“Payment is done with the local government unit or the LTO,” added Denamorca.
In preparation for the national identification system by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), HPG will soon incorporate data with PSA while traffic violations will be between the LTO and LGUs.
"What I am seeing is, once this national identification system would be put in place, we would only need a scanner to know the violation of a driver but this will start with baby steps,” Denomarca added.
