Para makahabol sa pagpapakabit ng RFID: DOTr moves start of cashless toll collections to December 1
The Department of Transportation (DOTr) has moved the start of the mandatory implementation of cashless toll collections on toll roads from November 2 to December 1 in response to the clamor of motorists who have yet to attach RFID stickers on their vehicles.
Toll Regulatory Board (TRB) Executive Director Abraham Sales, however, said the extension will not be moved beyond December 1.
The government has mandated toll operators to implement cashless toll collections at expressways and major tollways to promote contact-less transactions and minimize the spread of COVID-19.
Motorists who fail to conform to the government mandate will be apprehended and issued a citation ticket.
DOTr Assistant Secretary for Road Transport and Infrastructure Mark Steven Pastor reminded motorists to make use of the extended deadline to have RFIDs installed in their vehicles as early as they can.
“Iwasan natin ‘yung kung kailan isang linggo na lang, tsaka tayo magmamadaling magpunta sa installation sites para magpakabit ng RFID. Now, we are extending the deadline to give further consideration. Let us use the extension wisely,” he said.
