    Crackdown begins as PSVs without safety belts are punishable by a fine.

    Published on

    Bruno Shioso, a police spokesman, has announced the start of a countrywide effort to ensure all passengers wear safety belts.

    The goal of the crackdown is to identify and eliminate unlicensed PSV operators by ensuring that all PSVs have valid Road Service Licenses (RSLs) and that all PSV routes are in compliance.

    The initiative also aims to check the legality of PSV licenses and badges, commercial vehicle inspection stickers, fleet speed limits, and lane discipline to avoid unsafe overlapping and overtaking.

    An upsurge in fatal accidents prompted the crackdown. 
    26,145 individuals around the nation lost their lives in road accidents between September 16 and September 26.
