MANILA, Philippines – Airport police have held, for various allegations, at least 290 colorum taxis and drivers out of 1,500 vehicles operating at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) terminals.

Airport police mounted the crackdown in cooperation with the Land Transportation Office (LTO) Flying Squad and the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) under “Oplan Kuratong”.

Airport Police Intelligence and Investigation (PID) chief Captain Alden Gay said they launched the oplan project starting February 20, 2012. Drivers were held for various offenses such as illegal transfer of license plates, improvised license plates, no driver’s license/expired, reckless driving, overcharging the passenger, disregarding traffic signs, flagged up meter, broken window, headlight and tail light, seat belt law, obstruction, not carrying official receipt or certificate of registration and dress code violations.

Gay also said that out of 290 taxis, seven were turned over to the Pasay City Prosecutors Office for inquest on various criminal offenses.

Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) General Manager Jose Angel Honrado said his office has received so many complaints from passengers and other commuters, prompting them to conduct random checks on public utility transport in the airport complex.
