Recently, I had to double check when my driver’s license will expire. Thankfully, I won’t have to renew it until next year. Having to renew my driver’s license concerns me. Especially because I have witnessed for myself during the last time I renewed that it is possible to find out that you have a violation during your time of renewal even if you are actually not in the country during the alleged time of violation. This was the case of a senior citizen who I renewed license with last September 2010. The lady was not in the country the whole time and only arrived some weeks before and she has not driven in so many years. The theory of fellow drivers who were in line back then – her license was faked.
I had no idea back then that this thing actually happens to random LTO-license carrying citizens. That is, until I witnessed first hand. But because we know too well how good our underground artists are in Recto in selling fake IDs and all these YouTube videos on making them in under 6 minutes, what should we expect?
My thoughts include the hope that our government will actually do something this. Just like how BSP worked on incorporating additional security features to our money tender, hopefully the Land Transportation Office will do the same.
