The Department of Transportation (DOTr), through the Land Transportation Office (LTO) – Region V, launched last 31 May 2018, the first ever training on Speed Limit Setting for Local Government Units (LGUs). 

The training is one of the salient features of the Joint Memorandum Circular (JMC) 2018-001 signed by the DOTr, together with the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), and the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG). 

According to DOTr Undersecretary for Road Transport and Infrastructure Tim Orbos, this initiative shows the DOTr’s commitment and relentless efforts to promote transport modernization and road safety.

“This is as much part of the government's modernization drive. Not only do we aim for efficiency and convenience for our riding public, we want foremost to ensure their safety. Safer drivers. Safer vehicles. Safer roads,” Usec. Orbos said.

Under the JMC, the DOTr, through the LTO, shall provide training and information dissemination to city and municipal governments in the enactment of speed limit ordinances and road classifications.

LTO Regional Director Atty. Noreen San Luis-Lutey welcomed the participants and guests, and presented the region’s current road safety situation. 

Imagine Law, DOTr’s NGO Partner on Road Safety, provided the introduction of road safety principles, and presented the salient features of the JMC. 

Imagine Law likewise, guided the participants in drafting the ordinance for speed limit setting and road classification. After drafting such ordinances, participants are expected to go back to their respective localities to present the ordinance to the City Council for approval.
