The Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) down south isn’t just one of the most visually impressive pieces of infrastructure in the country, it’s also one of the most advanced.

Expressway management won’t be relying entirely on its fancy camera setup to keep things in order, though. Recently, 16 of the expressway’s traffic enforcers were deputized by the Land Transportation Office (LTO). These CCLEX personnel were required to take and pass the LTO’s deputization training and exams.
