Anti-Smoke Belching Drive Launched Anew

The Land Transportation Office (LTO) has launched anew an anti-smoke belching law campaign in implementation of the Clean Air Act.

Smoke emission tests were conducted by LTO personnel on some reportedly 150 vehicles for free at the Naga City Hall compound last Sunday.

The following day (Monday), the same tests were conducted on several other vehicles for pay to the LTO.

Such smoke-emission tests will now be done on all vehicles, including tricycles but especially on passenger buses and jeepneys, before owners can reapply for their licenses with the agency.

LTO Task Force Personnel will now man national highways and other main streets to be on the lookout for smoke-belchers that contribute heavily to the air pollution in towns and cities in the region.
