November is Clear Air month.
The Land Transportation Office requires that all vehicles for renewal of certificate of registration must be subject and pass the smoke test to be conducted by an LTO accredited smoke testing center.
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources – Environmental Management Bureau (DENR-EMB) and Local Government are also conducting actual smoke testings on the roads.
These measures, if properly and strictly implemented and enforced, would minimize if not eliminate, smoke belching vehicles plying our roads.
However, I wondering why there are still so many smoke belching vehicles running within the metropolis.
