At last 300 public utility drivers were given treats by the Land Transportation Office (LTO) as it launched its first “Tsuper Heroes Day” on Saturday.
During the whole day program held at the LTO Central Office in Quezon City, a seminar on road safety and road courtesy was conducted by the agency for the attendees to improve their awareness on the overall safety and quality of service they can provide to the public.
“‘Tsuper Heroes Day’ is an event that the LTO-NCR East initiates in line with its road safety advocacy. Drivers being the most obvious group of our ‘unsung heroes’, work night and day to bring the commuting public to and from work safe and sound,” the agency said in a statement.
According to the LTO, the program also aims to improve the personal hygiene, grooming, and health of PUV drivers.
Apart from discussions on road safety, the PUV drivers were also pampered with free haircut, quick massage and free medical check-up with doctors from the Department of Health-Quezon City who also provided health tips for the attendees.
“Pampering our drivers will somehow relieve them of the daily stress brought by problems on the road especially traffic,” the LTO added.
