The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) will redeploy traffic enforcers to areas covered by the no contact apprehension policy (NCAP) to make sure that motorists will continue to follow traffic rules. 

“Lahat ng may CCTVs ng MMDA — Edsa, Commonwealth Ave., C5, Quezon Ave., Roxas Blvd., and Macapagal Blvd. — dati may pinapatupad ng NCAP diyan. Diyan tayo magdadagdag ng traffic enforcers para maipatupad ‘yung traffic management,” lawyer Crisanto Saruca Jr., director of the MMDA’s Traffic Discipline Office said.

The NCAP was a force multiplier to aid MMDA enforcers on the ground. But with the temporary restraining order (TRO) from the Supreme Court (SC), the policy has been suspended for five months.

The MMDA also asked motorists to continue following road regulations even with the TRO from the SC.

“Sana mamentain yung driver discipline even in the light of the suspension of the no-contact apprehension policy dahil para naman sa ating lahat ito. Pakiusap ng MMDA yung disiplina sa mga motorista,” said Saruca.
