MMDA: Dry run of single ticketing system in NCR starts May 2, 2023
The pilot implementation of the single ticketing system for traffic violations committed in the National Capital Region (NCR) will begin on Tuesday, May 12, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) said Monday.
MMDA spokesperson Melissa Carunungan said they will first test the system in select areas to determine any lapses or adjustments before it is launched region-wide or nationwide.
The participating local government units are Manila City, Quezon City, Para?aque City, Muntinlupa City, Caloocan City, Valenzuela City, and San Juan City.
“Ito ay magiging malaking ginhawa para sa mga motorista dahil sa loob ng single ticketing system, ang top 20 most common traffic violations ay may pare-parehong multa, contesting procedures, at digital payment platforms kagaya ng GCash, Maya, at Landbank,” Carunungan said.
(This will be a big help for motorists because within the single ticketing system, the top 20 most common traffic violations will have the same fines, contesting procedures, and digital payment platforms such as GCash, Maya, and Landbank.)
The Metro Manila Traffic Code of 2023, which will serve as the guideline for the system, includes penalties for the following traffic violations:
Disregarding traffic signs Illegal parking (attended and unattended) Number coding UVVRP Truck ban Light truck ban Reckless driving Unregistered motor vehicle Driving without license Tricycle ban Obstruction Dress code for motorcycle Overloading Defective motorcycle accessories Unauthorized modification Arrogance/discourteous conduct (driver) Loading and unloading in prohibited zones Illegal counterflow Overspeeding
The fines for these violations range from P500 to P5,000, according to the MMDA.
Carunungan said the MMDA will also deploy 900 enforcers for the implementation of the single ticketing system. –KBK, GMA Integrated News
