THE Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) 7 issued citation tickets to 15 public transportation vehicles (PUV) operators as their personnel, the drivers and conductors, failed to implement the minimum public health protocols on Tuesday, July 13, 2021.
In spite of enforcing the minimum public health protocols for more than a year because of the Covid-19 pandemic, LTFRB 7 Director Eduardo Montealto Jr. said, there are still PUV drivers and conductors who do not properly wear masks and face shields.
If a commuter happens to witness a driver or conductor violating the protocols, Montealto encourages the commuter to report the violation through their hotline numbers or through their official Facebook page.
The commuter may send a picture with the time and the plate number of the vehicle.
Montealto said each violation carries a fine of P5,000.
