Maria Isabel Lopez' License Revoke by LTO for ASEAN Summit Stunt

Controversial actress Maria Isabel Lopez got her own dose of medicines after the Land Transportation Office (LTO) has revoked her driver's license after she passed through the lanes exclusively designated for delegates of the 31st Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) to evade heavy traffic along Epifanio delos Santos Avenue (EDSA) earlier this month.

Lopez is also prohibited by the LTO from applying and reacquiring license for the next two years and was imposed a fine of P5,000 for violation of the Anti-Distracted Driving Act, P2,000 for reckless driving and P1,000 for disrespecting traffic signs for a total amount of P8,000.

LTO Law Enforcement Service Director Francis Almora said "Ms. Lopez needs to "undergo the regular process just like any new applicants and need to show that she is safe to drive a vehicle if ever she decides to acquire a new license," Almora said in an interview with Radyo Pilipinas.

The former beauty queen turned actress whose real name is Maria Isabel Lopez Yokohama made headlines during the ASEAN Summit 2017 hosted by the Philippines as she posted on social media how she was able to disobey the traffic rules by driving inside the ASEAN Lane without being apprehended.

Maria Isabel Lopez Yokohama is expected to surrender her driver's license which will expire on September 2018 within 24 hours upon receipt of the resolution of the LTO Director for Law Enforcement.

In its resolution dated November 23, the LTO said that “respondent Yokohama expressly admitted her failure to meet the conditions concomitant with the grant of her license”.

“Worse, she showed no remorse and even publicized with gusto her improper and illegal acts on social media, which betray her utter lack of responsibility as a licensed driver, thus making her an improper person to operate a motor vehicle,” according to LTO chief Edgar Galvante.

Galvante reiterated that a person with a driver’s license should give consideration to other motorists and pedestrians and avoid committing acts which endanger lives, properties and public safety.
