MMDA: More traffic enforcers deployed along EDSA

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has deployed more traffic constables along EDSA to alleviate congestion during the Christmas holidays.

Additional 135 traffic enforcers are added to the existing 415 MMDA constables maneuvering traffic on EDSA, according to Manny Gonzales, head of the MMDA’s road emergency group.

“We will monitor the traffic situation on EDSA before Christmas and from there, we will determine if we will add more enforcers for the New Year celebration,” Gonzales, also deputy chief traffic enforcer of the Inter-Agency Council on Traffic (IACT) also said.

Last week, the MMDA banned provincial buses from traversing EDSA from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. during weekdays.

Delinquent bus drivers will be fined P300 and charged with obstruction and disregarding traffic rules under MMDA Resolution No. 16-06.

Aside from that, the MMDA also implemented the “nose-in, nose-out policy,” which prohibits bus drivers from maneuvering outside their terminals along EDSA.
