The year 2018 has been full of changes since the new Land Transportation (LTO) Chief Alberta Janine F. Lawas took her post last March. More effective checkpoints and strict helmet watch posts have been effective in keeping the streets of Dumaguete a complete law-abiding city.
Faster Service & Helmet Law
The Land Transportation Office of Dumaguete City is now made more comfortable for the people. Faster service can now be availed from the happy workers of the office. Faster systems are being used to maximize efficiently of time and work.
During the time of Chief Lawas, the helmet law is becoming more and more visible in the city. By 2019, she hopes that the streets will be full of law-abiding drivers. Aside from these, the LTO also managed to give various seminars and public announcements of the new system that has slowly grown to the office.
LTO in 2019
Lawas has assured that under her leadership, the LTO-Dumaguete District Office will target to further improve its services in 2019 despite the hitches faced this year. One of the projects already on her mind is to improve its database.
We will have to segregate our database to make it easier for us to do our regular reporting,” she explained.
Right now, our database is not specific as to the violations committed by the riding public. What we have is just a total of the number of apprehensions for a particular period covered, but we need to break that down into specific violations,” she added.
Another target for this coming 2019 takes the “Best Brigada Ahensya Award” of the Civil Service Commission next year. The office was invited to compete this year in all 4 categories but failed to make it, “most likely due to lack of time for preparation,” said the LTO chief.
Lawas said she is willing to sit down any time with anyone, who may have complaints, suggestions, and even assistance for the LTO-Dumaguete District Office to further prosper. She also would like to thank her staff, local government officials, the private sector, partner law enforcement agencies, and all those who have contributed her to do her job well this year, and may they (the office) have a better year up ahead.
