Show me Your Daily Orders…
Some people on this forum come here to vent. I agree with the venting, but their is also some good info being put out on this forum.
Last year I posted a story on the problems I encountered while trying to renew my drivers license (and clear a ticket I had blown off) at the LTO. The comments and other posts/info that other members posted in the next few weeks/months…came in handy today.
So…I was riding my scooter down the road when I ran into a LTO check point (hidden under a shade tree). After showing the LTO guy my drivers license, registration, insurance (all correct).
Me: Sir, May I ask you why I’m being pulled over ???
LTO: Sir, you are wearing the wrong shoes.
Me: What ???
LTO: Sir, It is against the law to ride a moto with Slippers.
Me: What ??? Really ???
LTO: Yes Sir
Me: Can I see the instruction ???
LTO: Reboot Stare (5 seconds)…Just a minute Sir (goes back to his buddies and then digs around in the van)
LTO: Here it is Sir…(beat up old word document).
Me: Ok, Can I see your Daily Orders ???
LTO: Reboot Stare… Just a minute Sir (goes back to buddies/van)
LTO: Here it is Sir.
Me: (after looking at the paper document) Sir, what is today’s date ???
LTO: Uh..it’s the 14th.
Me: Yes it’s the 14th, but your Daily Orders are marked as the 15th.
LTO: Sir ??? (Blank Stare)…
Me: Aren’t your Daily Orders supposed to be issued with the Correct Date ???
LTO: Uh yes…Sir, but someone made an error on the paper
Me: Are you sure you want to give me a ticket when your Orders are invalid ???
LTO: But Sirrrrrrrrrr…
Long story short… After the other 4 LTO guys came over and gave me the “evil eye”, and me staying calm and sticking to my guns…I was let go..”Sir, make sure you wear the correct shoes next time”…Ok, Thank you, have a nice day officer.
Thank you PFB.
