LTFRB agrees to install speed limiters on buses after Change.org petition garners over 12,800 signatures
Hoepfully, this isn’t just talk.
Bong Lozada of Inquirer.net reports that the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB), has agreed to install speed limiters on public buses after a petition by motoring editor James Deakin on Change.org managed to gather over 12,800 signatures in just two months.
The report explained that LTFRB Chairman Winston Ginez already gave his word to Deakin in a meeting on Tuesday (February 4) that the agency will begin putting on speed limiters on commuter buses. The petition on Change.org was launched after the horrific road accident last December that involved a Don Mariano bus falling off the Skyway, killing at least 20 people.
Deakin said in his blog that a speed limiter "costs $180 (P8,149.50) before duties and taxes" based on the information given to him by a supplier.
