        No one is above the law. Land Transportation Office (LTO) chief Edgar Galvante sent a clear message after firing one of the agency’s regional directors who was caught violating traffic regulations.

        Galvante issued Office Order No. 2021-294 dated October 26, 2021, relieving Arturo Apolinar of his post as Director 1 of LTO Region VI in Iloilo City.

        According to reports, members of the Iloilo City Public Safety and Traffic Management Office (PTSMO) flagged down Apolinar after he ignored the red light at a busy intersection in Jaro District last October 25.

        Instead of presenting his driver’s license to the traffic enforcers, the official allegedly instructed the team to follow him to his office to show that he is the regional director of the LTO in Western Visayas. This apparent display of arrogance reportedly reached Galvante that led to Apolinarremoval.

        Iloilo City mayor Jeffrey Treñas commented on the swift action by the two agencies: “Justice is served and the law prevails as LTO employee Apolinar is relieved of his present duties and responsibilities. We must remember that no one is above the law and as public officials, we must serve as a good example to the community by abiding the laws.”
