It seems Robert Blair Carabuena†might still be able to drive a motor vehicle in the future as ABS-CBNNews.com apparently jumped the gun on the Land Transportation Office.
TopGear.com.ph got in touch with LTO- National Capital Region director†Atty. Teofilo Guadiz†today to talk about the "permanent revocation" of Carabuena's driver's license. According to Guadiz, when ABS-CBNNews.com contacted him yesterday, September 17, asking for an update on Carabuena's case, he told the news outlet that he was currently drafting a 10-page decision revoking Carabuena's driver's license for good. A few hours later, ABS-CBNNews.com came out with a story saying that the LTO has already revoked Carabuena's driver's license. The LTO NCR director was later informed that†Carabuena's case would be handled by the†office of LTO chief Virginia Torres.
"To put the record straight, no decision has officially been made about Carabuena's driver's license," said Guadiz, stressing that what he had then was only a draft. He clarified that the final decision on Carabuena's driving privileges now lies with the LTO chief's office.
Now that the fate of Carabuena's driving privileges is still up in the air, do you think the LTO should revoke his license permanently or should his punishment be a little more lenient? Hit the comments box.
