MMDA says its NCAP has proper basis, rejects LTO and LTFRB call for its suspension

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority said the Land Transportation Office and the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board were barking up the wrong tree by calling for the suspension of its no contact apprehension policy.

In a Facebook post, the MMDA’s NCAP is based on Resolution 16-01 that was approved in 2016.

Unlike the NCAP of local government units, the MMDA said it does not tap third party service providers to implement its own policy.

The MMDA NCAP is implemented by its own personnel using its own closed-circuit TV cameras, it said.

it also said it imposes lower fines or penalties on violators compared to local government units.

It said its NCAP has a valid basis and proper guidelines.

Motorists and some officials have called for the suspension of the NCAP implemented by the MMDA and several local government units.

They raised concerns about the lack of due process and excessive fines brought about by using cameras to catch and penalize traffic rule violators.
