SAN FERNANDO City, Pampanga – The Land Transportation Office (LTO 3) commemorated the National Day of Remembrance for Road Crash Victims, Survivors, and Families last Sunday, November 21, 2021.
As a tribute to the victims and survivors of road crashes, a ceremonial release of balloons and lighting of candles was held.
Police Staff Sergeant Darwin Cacho, a survivor, gave his testimony and shared his learning from his personal road crash experience.
LTO Region 3 Regional Director Eduardo C. de Guzman and Assistant Regional Director Glorioso Daniel Z. Martinez have emphasized the gravity of the fatalities caused by ignorant and irresponsible drivers on the road.
Accordingly, the Comprehensive Driver’s Education or CDE is now being required by LTO in the renewal of 10-year validity licenses.
“It is essential and critical in ensuring that drivers are well equipped with the knowledge needed when driving a vehicle. It is not just a requirement but a moral obligation of each motorist to be educated in the rules, regulations, and use of the road.,” Director De Guzman emphasized. (ai/mtvn)
