·1-min read

The Philippine Department of Transportation said it wanted to ensure a driver doesn't get a license again, after a video was posted to Facebook showing a man driving while sitting in a car's passenger seat.

The department released the video on Facebook, where it appealed to its sister agency, the Land Transportation Office, to identify the man and revoke his licence.

According to the Philippine Star, the man was identified as Miko Lopez. LTO will charge him for reckless driving, illegal modification (removing the steering wheel), not wearing a seatbelt, and being an improper person to operate a motor vehicle.

The newspaper claimed that his license will be revoked, and disqualified from applying for a driver's license again in the future.
