Serious breach of security; Lopez's license may be suspended or revoked for ASEAN lane scandal

Your driver's license can either be suspended or revoked, transportation officials said. Last Saturday, November 11, actress and Binibining Pilipinas Universe 1982 Maria Isabel Lopez removed the divider cones along EDSA and sped through the ASEAN lane in an attempt to "outsmart" heavy traffic.
Lopez's move was considered a "serious breach of security," which prompted the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) and the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) to ask the Land Transportation Office (LTO) to suspend or revoke her driver's license.

LTO law enforcement director Francis Ray Almora said that since Lopez's case has "no precedent," there are no hard-and-fast rules for what penalties await her. "We will go back to the fact that driving is a privilege and not a right," Almora told Rappler in a text message.

"Hence if LTO Assistant Secretary (Edgar Galvante) determines that Ms Lopez is not a right person to operate a motor vehicle, her privilege maybe suspended or revoked," Almora said, citing Republic Act No. 4136 or the Land Transportation and Traffic Code.
