Las Piñas City Government issues advisory about fake Friendship Route stickers and the scammers selling them

For those of you who heard about the recent developments about the Friendship Route stickers of the City of Las Piñas, be aware that the City Government declared that such stickers are absolutely NOT FOR SALE, as reported by the Manila Bulletin.

That being said, there are scammers who are selling illegal versions of the Friendship Route stickers to motorists who are eager to acquire them so that they can move better around the city. Those who engage in the selling fake Friendship Route stickers can get themselves into trouble according to city regulations. Clearly the only way for motorists to acquire legitimate Friendship Route stickers is through the City Government by means of applying online.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…

The Las Pinas City government advised motorists, who are using public or private roads as alternative routes to ease or decongest traffic along the main thoroughfares in the city, not to deal with unscrupulous persons selling fake friendship route stickers.

The city government issued the advisory after a fake Las Pinas City government account was created, selling fake friendship stickers for P600 to P,1000.

The city government reiterated its call to motorists who wish to avail of a free friendship route sticker to visit the link bit.ly/LPCFriendshipStickerApp.

Persons caught selling fake friendship route stickers will be slapped with a fine of P3,000 to P5,000, according to city officials.

The city government issued on March 17 guidelines on how to apply for the friendship route stickers.

It said the vehicle’s official receipt (OR) and Certificate of Registration (CR) of the owner should be registered with Las Piñas address.

Las Pinas residents can still avail of the stickers even as their vehicle is not registered in the city by just showing driver’s license or any other documents that will prove that the applicant is a city resident.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a resident of Las Piñas City who still has yet to acquire a legitimate Friendship Route sticker from the City Government, have you applied already online? If you did, how was the experience of the online application? If you ever spot someone selling fake Friendship Route stickers, would you report them to the local authorities?
