        Arsenio Boy Evangelista has been making headlines recently for protesting the implementation of the new Motor Vehicle Inspection System (MVIS). He is currently the president of the Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption (VACC), which is more commonly known for its work helping victims of violent crimes. In the past, Evangelista and his family were active in secondhand vehicle dealerships for more than 30 years, so the term ‘roadworthy’ is of particular significance to him.

        Recently, VACC joined forces with Clean Air Movement of the Philippines (CAMPI) to spread awareness among motorists regarding the alleged questionable implementation of the MVIS. This morning, the two groups launched a noise barrage in pursuit of their objective.

        Evangelista is likely to pursue the corruption angle of this particular issue. He said the government officials involved in drafting the operational guidelines and implementing rules and regulations for private motor vehicle inspection centers (PMVIC) must be held accountable for allegedly messing up the much-delayed project.

        Aside from waging an all-out information drive to draw attention to supposed inconsistencies, technical glitches, and overcharging at PMVICs, the two groups are also targeting a temporary restraining order from a local court to stop these facilities from operating.

        Recently, Pampanga-based businessman Rene Romero raised concerns over inconsistencies in MVIS testing results based on his own experience. You can read more about that issue here
