We all still remember the incident that went viral a couple of weeks ago in Mandaluyong, wherein an errant driver in his Toyota Land Cruiser caused multiple accidents and general chaos along San Miguel Ave.
Up until today, the Land transportation office (LTO) had only suspended the driver’s license. It has now been reported that the transport agency will seek a heavier punishment.
LTO to revoke driver’s license
The LTO intelligence and investigation division (IID) recommended that the license of Dominador Braga (the driver who caused the accident) be revoked.
The agency added further that the driver has already admitted that he was the one behind the wheel of the errant vehicle. The driver is now also at the Mandaluyong City Police Custodial Center.
“Tinapos na namin ang imbestigasyon at maglalabas ang LTO ng desisyon base sa mga hawak na ebidensya bukod pa sa pag-amin na rin ng drayber,” said LTO-IID officer-in-charge Renan Melitante. If Braga is charged with reckless driving, the same chargers will be handed to the registered owner of the vehicle.
Lastly, the agency said that should Braga want to reapply for a new license after the ruling, he can only do so after going through very strict and stringent procedures.
