    I didnt think they would delete those kind of things, perhaps just indicate that you already payed the fines.

    i forward nyo dapat to sa LTO higher ups, sa malacañang or even sa TV stations para malaman at maimbistigahan. Naming names (LTO personnel involved), exact dates, exact places (what branch LTO?) will help. that way, bullet proof yung ebidensya mo. imho lang naman. sayang kasi kung i-sha-share lang natin dito at di maipaalam dun sa mga dapat umaksyon para matigil ang mga kawalang hiyaan na ginagawa nila. ;)

    you play fire with fire: tip lang ng kakilala ko from inside, pag nahuli ka at ayaw ng settement, ibigay mo license mo then get a new one, how?
    1.falsify ur middle initial, most effective yan
    2.falsify ur year of birth
    3.falsify ur address
    4.tapos if ull be needing it for official purpose pag nakuha mo na yun license mo or on the day that ur taking the pic, kunwari tignan mo pic mo sa computer kasi pede ka re take e, sabihin mo ay mali yun middle initial
