DCPO, traffic agencies conduct surprise inspection on V-Day

Forty-one motorcycles and tricycles were impounded in the surprise inspection spearheaded by the Davao City Police Office (DCPO) on the morning of Valentine’s Day.

According to the report from DCPO spokesperson, Sr. Insp. Maria Teresita Gaspan, the joint operation, dubbed Oplan Lambat Bitag Sasakyan, started at 9:30 a.m., which also resulted in the impounding of two motorcycles with illegally attached sidecars.

The operation was joined by the Land Transportation Authority, Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board, City Transport and Traffic Management Office, Task Force Davao, and Regional Mobile Force Battalion.

They also confiscated 300 drivers’ licenses and issued five citation tickets before ending the operation at around 11 a.m.

The impounded motorcycles were brought to the Traffic Group compound.

Last month, in a similar operation, law enforcers seized 28 motorcycles in the effort to clear the roads of unregistered and stolen vehicles. The operation also resulted in the confiscation of 81 drivers’ licenses and the issuance of 38 citation tickets.

The joint operation was conducted in major thoroughfares under the jurisdiction of nine of 12 police precincts — Sta. Ana, San Pedro, Talomo, Sasa, Buhangin, Bunawan, Toril, Tugbok, and Calinan.
