Laban Konsyumer Inc. asked the Department of Transportation to implement the long-delayed private mandatory inspection of motor vehicles to comply with the mandate of the Clean Air Act and ensure the safety of motorists.

“Laban Konsyumer Inc. supports the advocacy of AGHAM [Alyansa ng mga Grupong Haligi ng Agham at Teknolohiya Para sa Mamamayan] for the transport agencies to implement now the PMVIC, which has been a much-delayed project for the past three to four administrations,” Laban Konsyumer president Victorio Dimagiba said.

“Millions in foreign aid as well as local appropriations has been spent and this is a project that complies with the specific mandate of the Clean Air Act,” he said.

Dimagiba said that as a compromise, PETCs may still operate in areas where there are no PMVICs, provided that they are competent and truly fulfill their role in checking out vehicle.
