POE CALLS FOR STIFFER PENALTIES ON ERRING TOWING COMPANIES

0

SENATOR Grace Poe urged on Tuesday for a prompt investigation on the reported carnapping cases involving towing syndicates preying on innocent owners of privatevehicles accused of illegal parking with a view of charging them with carnapping or car theft. Contained in Senate Resolution No. 708, Poe said the probe aims to dismantle such groups which have been actively engaged in such unlawful acts to the detriment of motorists. “Illegal towing tantamount to carnapping must be punished to protect citizens’ fundamental rights,” Poe said as she took note of the Metro Manila Development Authority’s report that as of May, 2014, it has only accredited 24 towing companies to tow vehicles for violating of traffic rules and regulations specifically illegal parking.
