Atty. Noreen Bernadette San Luis-Lutey

Regional Director, Land Transportation Office Region 5 Philippines

Since 2012 Atty. San Luis-Lutey has served as the Regional Director of the Land Transportation Office (LTO) for Region 5 of the Philippines, where she has made great contributions. One of her most significant achievements is the establishment in 2014 of the programme “Students Today, Road Users Tomorrow (STRUT)”. STRUT seeks to instill a road safety consciousness in young people through education about land transportation laws and regulations, so that they  grow up to become responsible road users. Because of her relentless campaign, STRUT has been adopted by different groups, including several NGOs and some government agencies including the Department of Education.

The collaboration between the Department of Education and the LTO in Region 5 resulted to the crafting of contextualized road safety teaching modules for STRUT’s integration into the K-12 curriculum, which was launched in 2017. Also, Atty. San Luis-Lutey has played a role in the implementation of major land transportation laws, serving on the committee which drafted and implemented the IRR on RA 10586, known as the “Anti Drunk and Drugged Driving Act” of 2013.

Through her leadership, LTO Bicol has attained the highest number of apprehensions in its enforcement and was conferred a special citation by former LTO Chief, Assistant Secretary Virginia Torres in 2014. Atty. San Luis-Lutey has received numerous awards and recognitions for her work in the field of road safety. In 2017, she received the Civil Service Commission (CSC) Presidential Lingkod Bayan Award for her leadership and commitment to public service and in 2019, she was awarded as one of the ten Outstanding Women in Law Enforcement and National Security of the Philippines.
