MMDA to re-implement No-Contact Traffic Apprehension Policy
Starting tomorrow, April 15, 2016, MMDA will re-implement the No-Contact Traffic Apprehension Policy that utilizes close circuit television (CCTV) cameras for motorists committing traffic violations.
Metro Manila Council, which is MMDA’s policy-making body, recently passed a resolution to send notice to the vehicle’s owner or operator telling them of their violations. The specific time, date, and place will be included as well as the traffic violation committed.
After which, the motorist could still contest to the MMDA-Traffic Adjudication Division (TAD) about the violation no longer than seven days upon receipt of the notice.
“Within 15 days from receipt of the adverse TAD resolution, the driver may still file a motion for reconsideration (MR). If the MR is denied, the driver may further file an appeal before the Office of the Chairman where the decision shall be final and executory,” MMDA posts on their page.
After proceeding, the violator will have to pay the fine once the final notice has been received. Failure to do so will force the MMDA to include the violator’s plate number in the Alarm list and will then be sent to the Land Transportation Office (LTO).
Individuals with cars in the said list would not be able to renew their vehicle registration until they settle the fine.
