HPG launches “Kotse Mo, I-Click Mo” to identify missing vehicles

admin   •   August 18, 2015   •   25377

Quezon City, Philippines — a total of about 250 missing vehicles that were recovered by the Highway Patrol Group are now impounded at Camp Crame.

Most of these vehicles have not yet been claimed by its owners.

Because of this, the Highway Patrol Group has launched a Facebook account named, “Recovered and Impounded Motor Vehicle.”

This will serve as an online channel of HPG’s “Kotse Mo, I-Click Mo” Program.

The said program aims to help car owners locate or retrieve their respective vehicles that have gone missing or were carnapped and could be under HPG’s custody.

The Facebook account publishes the image and description of impounded vehicles such as its chassis, engine number and plate number among others. Although some may have been repainted or the plates altered, owners can click on the image for proper identification. It also provides guidelines on what to do and where to claim the vehicles.

HPG Spokesperson P/Supt. Oliver Tanseco said, these vehicles were siezed through their anti-carnapping operations.

He added that owners would need to present original copies of the official receipt and certificate of registration or the personal identification card as well as the vehicle’s duplicate key to be able to claim it from HPG.

Tanseco said, “Pumunta lamang po kayo sa HPG. Dalhin nyo po ang mga dokumento na magpapatunay na sa inyo po ito at ibabalik po namin sa inyo kung wala rin lamang kaso na nakabinbin sa korte.”

(You may go to HPG and bring the necessary documents to validate ownership so that we could release the vehicle as long as there isn’t any pending case in court.)

Aside from those currently impounded at Camp Crame, photographs of vehicles recovered by HPG in different parts of the country can also be viewed on said Facebook account. (UNTV News)

HPG to assist DOTr in pilot run of increase in PUVs passenger capacity

Robie de Guzman   •   November 1, 2021

MANILA, Philippines – Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Police General Guillermo Eleazar on Monday directed the Highway Patrol Group (HPG) to assist and coordinate with the Department of Transportation regarding the 30-day pilot study of the gradual increase in the number of allowed passengers in public utility vehicles (PUV).

In a statement, Eleazar said the PNP-HPG is ready to extend any form of assistance during the pilot run aside from ensuring the strict observance of minimum public health standards.

“Makikipag-ugnayan ang Highway Patrol Group sa DOTr para umalalay sa pilot run ng dagdag na passenger capacity sa ating mga PUVs. Bukod sa pagtiyak na nasusunod ang minimum public health standards sa mga pampublikong sasakyan, handang tumulong ang PNP sa iba pang paraan para maging matagumpay ang 30-day pilot run na ito,” he said.

The pilot run was scheduled after the National Task Force against COVID-19 approved the increase in operational capacity from the current 50% to 70% for public road-based and rail transportation plying Metro Manila and nearby provinces such as Bulacan, Rizal, Cavite, and Laguna.

The DOTr earlier said the pilot run would begin on November 4. The pilot study would determine if public transportation could already resume to its full operation amid the pandemic.

The PNP chief then reminded commuters to continue observing the health protocols to prevent the spread of the virus in PUVs.

“May plastic barrier man o wala, may law enforcer man o wala, ang kaligtasan ng bawat isa laban sa COVID-19 ay nasa kamay ng bawat driver at pasahero. Kaya sa mga kapatid nating driver ng mga pampasaherong sasakyan, huwag na sanang mauwi sa sitahan pa ang bagong patakarang ito dahil alam ninyo na kayo din naman ang magdurusa kung kayo ay mahuli,” Eleazar said.

“Kasama sa pagluwag ng patakarang ito ang pagtitiwala sa inyo ng pamahalaan na kayo ay magiging disiplinado at responsible sa kaligtasan ng inyong sarili at kapwa pasahero,” he added.

The latest policy will allow traditional jeepneys to accommodate an additional four to five passengers while modern jeepneys may accommodate standing passengers.

Moreover, public utility buses can allow standing passengers although the one-seat-apart policy remains.

43 illegally operating vehicles, impounded in NCR under anti-colorum drive — LTFRB

Aileen Cerrudo   •   April 16, 2021

MANILA, Philippines — The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) has reported that 43 private vehicles have been impounded during the agency’s anti-colorum drive.

LTFRB Executive Director Joel Bolano on Friday (April 16) reported that as of April 12, 43 units have been impounded for unauthorized operations.

He also reminded the public not to hire services from colorum units especially if the implemented health and safety protocols are not followed.

Huwag pumatol sa mga colorum. Hindi po nasusunod ang ating health protocols. Baka sa kagustuhan po nating makauwi, iyong pasalubong na ating maiwuuwi ay virus. Wala rin po silang insurance na pwedeng sumagot. Ang mga public utility ay mayroon passenger accident insurance. Sana po sundan natin ang mga patakaran pagdating sa public transport (Let us not hire colorum units. They may not be following health protocols. Due to our desire to go home, we might bring home the virus instead. [These colorum] also do not have any insurance. Our public utility has what we call passenger accident insurance. I hope we follow the rules when it comes to public transport),he said.

Meanwhile, the agency admits there is a challenge in monitoring PUVs when it comes to following the 50% limited capacity.

Bolano said they are coordinating with various government agencies to make sure health protocols, as well as limited capacity in public transport, are implemented. AAC

Mga bibiyahe sa probinsiya para sa long holiday, mahigpit na babantayan – HPG

Robie de Guzman   •   March 31, 2021

MANILA, Philippines – Mahigpit ang panawagan ng pamahalaan sa publiko, partikular na sa mga residenteng nasa NCR Plus bubble, na umiwas sa pagbiyahe habang ipinaiiral ang enhanced community quarantine (ECQ).

Sa ilalim ng ECQ, mga mahahalagang biyahe lang ang papayagan at mga authorized person outside of residence (APOR) lang ang maaaring umalis ng kanilang mga tahanan.

Ginawa ng Philippine National Police-Highway Patrol Group (PNP-HPG) ang paalala matapos makatanggap ng ulat ukol sa mga pasaherong dadagsa umano sa mga terminal upang umuwi sa kani-kanilang mga probinsiya para sa long holiday.

Ayon kay PNP-HPG director Police Brigadier General Alexander Tagum, mahigpit nilang babantayan ang bus terminals at border checkpoints sa Metro Manila upang matiyak na pawing APOR lang ang mga pasahero.

“Magsisismula na po mag-uwian ang mga mamamayan ng National Capital Region na uuwi po sa kani-kanilang probinsya dahil po sa Holy Week,” ani Tagum.

Noog Martes, sorpresang nag-ikot ang mga tauhan ng PNP-HPG at Department of Transportation (DOTr) sa ilang terminal sa Metro Manila at inalam kung may dala ang bawat pasahero na identification card o company ID na nagpapatunay na otorisado silang bumiyahe.

Kung may pasaherong hindi otorisadong bumiyahe, sinabi ni DOTr Assistant Secretary Mark Steven Pastor na kailangan silang pababain dahil paglabag ito sa mga patakarang inilatag ng Inter-Agency Task Force.

“Pababain ho sila at hindi ho hayaang bumiyahe upang masigurado po natin na ma-achieve natin yung very purpose nitong ECQ natin, which is to limit mobility po ng mga taong hindi dapat lumabas,” ani Pastor.

Paalala rin ng mga otoridad sa mga tsuper ng mga pampublikong sasakyan na sumunod sa 50 percent passenger capacity at health protocols sa public transport gaya ng pagsusuot ng face mask at face shield at one-seat apart rule.

Maaaring patawan ng kaukulang multa at kumpiskahin ang lisensya ng mga tsuper na lalabag sa naturang mga patakaran kahit na pasahero ang sumuway sa protocols. – RRD (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Asher Cadapan Jr.)
