Filipinos Have No Choice But To Drive Without Driver’s Licenses

imageMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) – Everywhere you go, it is illegal to drive a motor vehicle without a government-issued driver’s license.  In the Philippines, the government is responsible for motorists driving without a license — card,  that is.

The Land Transportation Office (LTO), the counterpart of the U.S. Department of Motor Vehicles, has announced that by March this year, it will run out of the redesigned driver’s license cards, thanks to a third-party vendor it has contracted with to produce the plastics.

While drivers are issued temporary paper licenses,  many motorists complain that such licenses are often left in their trousers’ pocket to wash away with their laundry. Which means they have to go to LTO several times a year and deal with the long wait to get a replacement paper license.

This situation is brought to you by the Aquino administration’s Daang Matuwid (straight path) , a path full  of Filipinos driving without a (plastic) license!
