(NAR) VOL. III NO. 2 / APRIL - JUNE 1992

[ LTO MEMORANDUM CIRCULAR NO. 92-151, April 03, 1992 ]


One of the major causes in the destruction of our highways is the non-observance in the loading capacity perpetrated by owners of cargo trucks.  Truckers, despite the anti-overloading campaign launched by the Land Transportation Office with the assistance of personnel from the Department of Public Works and Highways are reluctant to comply with the required loading standard.

To forestall the premature and rapid deterioration and damage to public roads and bridges, the following procedures and guidelines in the disposition of cases involving overloading of cargoes should be adopted:

1. An administrative fine of P100.00 shall be imposed pursuant to Batas Pambansa No. 398;

2. The excess in load to be paid shall be treated as additional gross weight which the owner/operator can make use of it for one calendar year;

3. The imposition of additional gross weight shall not exceed 4,000 kls., irrespective of the excess in load at the time of apprehension;

4. Payment of additional gross weight shall be computed as follows:
GASOLINE FED: T-TRUCK (registered private) — P0.20/kilo excess
TH-TRUCK (registered as hire) — P0.30/kilo excess

DIESEL FED: T-TRUCK (registered private) — P0.12/kilo excess
TH-TRUCK (registered as hire) — P0.15/kilo excess
For strict compliance.

Adopted: 3 Apr. 1992
