CEBU CITY – The Land Transportation Office (LTO) has officially deputized 16 traffic officers of the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX).
They completed and passed the deputization training and examination and are now authorized to strictly enforce traffic rules and regulations inside the 8.9-kilometer modern toll facility.
LTO Director for Law Enforcement Service Atty. Clarence V. Guinto led their graduation ceremony last July 29.
“I enjoin you to do good because you do not only represent yourself but also your organization, CCLEC (Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway Corp.), and LTO because we gave you the deputization,” said Guinto, who is also LTO-National Capital Region West regional director.
Aside from strictly enforcing traffic rules and regulations, they will also be responsible in responding to any traffic-related incidents, ensure that CCLEX is safe to road users, and assist motorists when their vehicles break down.
Aside from fielded patrol crew, CCLEX has a smart management traffic system to ensure safe drive inside the facility.
The smart management traffic system detects traffic load, speed and vehicle load, license plates, and road weather condition.
There will also be more than 100 closed-circuit television cameras and sensors that will be installed in CCLEX to monitor all the ins and outs of the expressway.
CCLEC Vice President and Project Manager Herbert C. Laboy congratulated the patrol crew for successfully passing the stringent requirements of becoming LTO deputized agents.
CCLEC Operations Manager Mareon Therese H. Miole reminded motorists that CCLEX is a traffic discipline zone and ensuring safety on the road is a shared responsibility.
CCLEC Senior Manager for Legal Services Atty. Rosemarie O. Versoza assured LTO that the company will continuously work closely with the agency for the enforcement of traffic rules and regulations.
