Land Transportation Office-Bais District chief Janine Lawas last week warned motorists against the use of blinding lights, such as fog lights, and other similar illegal accessories by vehicles that may endanger the lives of the public.{{more}}

The warning came because of observations from citizens that many vehicles are using fog lamps, halogen lights, and other non-prescribed forms of lighting that can cause accidents on the road.

She said they will intensify their campaign and will conduct more checkpoints at night time and will apprehend violators.

The LTO has been reminding the public against the use of these accessories as they are illegal and a violation of Republic Act 4136 or The Land Transportation and Traffic Code.

“Pimping” motorcycles, four-wheeled and other vehicles is subject to fines and penalties under the Code, she added.

Lawas also appealed to shop owners to refrain from selling fog lights and similar items to help the LTO in its campaign to reduce road accidents.*(PNA/JFP)
