Protocol License Plate Number 8
They've been the bane of motorists since time immemorial.

Most motorists in the country have encountered that plague of a plate called "Protocol Plate Number 8." When they're not in their reckless, abusive mode, they use sirens and blinkers to intimidate motorists. In most cases, the vehicles with these protocol plates were reportedly being driven by people other than the authorized owner.

But woe no more. House speaker Pantaleon Alvarez has ordered a recall of these protocol license plates because of news reports that vehicles carrying the number 8 plate were spotted in indecent places or figured in crime-related activities, according to a news article from ABS-CBN News.

A memorandum dated Wed, Aug 24, instructed lawmakers with “protocol plates issued in the 16th Congress and earlier” to turn over the plates to the Office of the Secretary General.
