    Sir just want to ask, I have a tricycle and I use it in our province for public use. I have my franchise of a TODA in our place. If I decided to use it for the meantime as my personal service to work, will I get caught for a violation, eventhough, I have all complete papers and requirements?just want to ask to ensure that if ever I do decide to use it as a single service to work I won’t be caught for any violation.
    Thank you and hoping for your response.
    God bless

    To Our Hon. LTO Executive Chief Madam Virginia Protacio Torrrs,

    Please Be Concerned To The People & Drivers That Are Involved To The CAPOTE AGENDA Contract Of Las Piñas City Hall. The 10,000 php Penalty Fee Can’t Be Immediately Produced, Our Honorary Chief Of LTO Executive Chief Justice Madam Virginia Protacio Torres, Wnose Going To Afford Payin The Penalty Amount Just To Save Himself From LTO Indictments & Other UnAvoidable ID Card Confiscation? Who Should Shoulder The Fine When We Are Just The PROXY To The Supreme Court Officials? I Will Pay Immediately If Iam Personally Intending On Buying Or Scoring These Stuffs Without Your Permission And Just For My Own Benefit & Likes. I am Intentionally Taking Participation On CAPOTE Agreement Agenda That The Honorary Head Mayor Mercedita Gonzales Deometreiou, Had Asked Me To Do Even If Iam Currently In A Government Appointed Title As The Manila & Las Piñas City HEAD COUNSELOR. I Am Never Wishing To Be In Politics, The Head Official Of The City – Her Hon. HEAD MAYOR MGD, Is The Executive Personality Who Made Me Signed Up For My Account Position And Title Now. I Think It Is A Good Thing To Bother Asking The Head Mayor For Explanations About The Capote Agreement Before Somebody Would Care Taking A Back-Fire On Us. The Conditions Seem To Be A Little Out Of Perspective. How Come Iam A Counselor & Doing These Out-Of-Tune Task? And Most Worse That Can Happen, You Might Get An Ugly Response From These Kill-Viewers Of Yours Because You Are An ADDICT. Isn’t That True Madam? And Also, These Rumors If Ever It Spreaded Can Cause You Lots Of Trouble Especially At Your Area Where You Stay. HOW CAN YOU FIX THE RE-WILL-OCCUR PROBLEMS REGARDING TO YOUR REPUTATION AS A GOOD CITIZEN OF YOUR BONAFIDE CITY A None Society Member Hook-On-Drugs? So, There Must Be Cleaning-Up To Do On These Matters. Where Will You Get Answers To Erase Dope-Hood Backgrounds & Take Back Those That’s Lost In Your Credibility To Where You Started As An Officially Normal PERSON OF THE COMMUNITY & A Non-Aspirant To DRUGS? I am Before Not Known Using Drugs In Our Place Even After I Graduate & Finishing The Course In Computer Engineering At AMACC Magallanes & Took A 2years & 11months South Korea Abroad-Hopping To Work In A Newly Opened Company Located In Seoul, Inchon City. So When The Contract Ended And Flew Back Here In Manila Alone. I Met A Guy Named Arnold Vinuya Who Had Been Busy Taking Me To Bars Along Roxas Blvd. And Met With People Connected To Drugs In A Motel In Pasay City. I Got Into Showing Money & Pay For The 4,300 php About 10 grams In Weigh Amount, Which We Consumed The 2 grams In Actual & Brought Back In Our Place The Remaining 8 grams Of ‘BATO’ And Settled Dividing Into Half Each For The Two Of Us. That Story Took Place On December Of Year 1993. So As I Go, I Got Jailed By The LTO Q.C. Drugs Examiners And Admitted For 3 months In Their Backyard Area Lot Newly Renovated Rehab Compound Center For Non-Pro ID License Card Examinee. The LTO Required To Take Drug Test-Exam For Every Card Renewals. I Was Positive & Paid 14,000 php For No Court Appearance Needed & Told Me That The Supposed 120,000 php Jail Imprisonment Fine To The NBI Warrant Department & The 350,000 php Fee For The LTO RTC Court Judge Including The 410,000 php Court Hearing + Requirements Fees Could Be Avoided When I Voluntarily Submit To Taking The Risk Staying In A REHAB Center. I Was At That Time Ignorant To People Who Takes Drugs Like Marijuana For Vice. I Managed Surviving Days To Months Of Stay In The REHAB And Got Freed By Signing On The Agreement To The Barsngay Tanod That I Must Obey What’s All Wriiten On The Paper Even Without The Court Judge Official’s Presence. To Make That Clear. They Forced Me To Sign & Agree And Asked Money ‘SUHOL’ From My Parents Every Week Of The Amount In Peso The Cash 3,400 For 9 months Before My Parents Decided To Appeal In Court For Extortion By The 4 Barangay Tanod To The Honorable Preciding Judge In LTO Q.C. The Re-Appeal Of The Barangay Tanods Were Trashed And Denied In Front Of The Said Preciding Ex-Officio Judge Madam Marina Gonzales And Out-Decided By The Asst. Head Barangay Solicitor-Judge Madam Mercelinda Gonzales And Given A Decision To Reimbursed The Extorted Money Plus Moral Damages Reaching The Standard Price Of 470,000 php, Plus The EXEMPLARY Civil Status Indemnity Amounting To 4,000,000 Pesos Paid In Metered Cheque Where We Obliged Us To Pay In Full Our House Mortage Fees Including Others To The Hon. Judge Virginia P. Torres, Sr. Inside Her Top Floor Office At LTO Court Of Appeals Bldg. In 1994. So, That’s Where The Drug Test & The Barangay LTO Tanod Arresting Boys Got Banned & Blottered To Every Precints In Manila Including Provinces. And Also, The LTO Supreme Court Made A New Policy During 1995 (Effectivity Start & For Lifetime) That States The Law On Protection Priorities Only For Civilians By All Lawmen And Stopped The Harrassments To Every Civilians Member Or Non-Members Of The LTO. And To Give Another Straight To Point Reviews / That, The Supreme Court On 1997 Gave Decision That The ‘METO-Substance’ Are Legal On Streets & Homes With Exemption To Other Popular Drugs Like The MARIJUANA That Are Tested Hazardous To Drivers And Can Cause Humanly & Physical Harm When Accidents, Because Of Zero Reflexive Reactions, Could Lead To Mental Block And Poority To Visions Which Brings Eminent Danger On Roads, Streets, Highways And To Civilized Grounds & Community Places Because Of These Mental Toxications That Could Also Lead To Death Of Young People. Whereas, Non-Toxicating Substances Causes Vigor & I.Q. Health That Are Said By The Authorities Of City Hall Will Be Available For Sale Without Prescriptions In All MERCURY DRUGSTORES OUTLET & Exclusively Sold To Male-Adult Only w/ Receipts This Coming Maturity Month And Year Of Effectivity Until The 2100 year Date Of
