    I had a major car accident along the South Luzon Expressway some time ago. I only found out about the accident the following day when I regained consciousness. I also found out that my driver’s license was taken by a Highway Patrol Group officer. I was cited for reckless driving and being fined P 3,000; I was not interviewed at all by the HPG officer re the accident. Did I really commit a traffic violation?

  • John Mark Medina says:

    magkano yung penalty sa top load or overload.

  • Hello, there.

    Just wanna know regarding the fines and penalties. Like for example, if you had an accident, then you don’t have a driver’s license. I believe that there’s a penalty. But I wanna know is that, if you are driving without a license, then you under the influence and recklessly driving on a national highway and you got involve in an accident. I believe all of those mentioned violations have specific fines and penalties. Are you gonna be charge with each of the fines and penalties associated with the violation or you will be charge whichever has the higher fines or penalties? Hope to get an answer from anyone who is well versed about this.

    Thanks and have a great day.
