MMDA to start sending summons to traffic violators caught on CCTV by this Friday
We have so many questions.
(SPOT.ph) The Metro Manila Development Authority is planning to bring back the “no-contact apprehension” policy this Friday, April 15, and along with its re-implementation is a procedure for how to respond to the traffic citations that fall under the said policy, reports Interaksyon.com.
Motorists caught committing violations by the Metro Manila Development Authority’s (MMDA) closed-circuit cameras will be sent a summons that includes the date, time, location, and type of violation executed. Upon receiving the receipt of the summons, erring motorists are given seven days to contest it in front of the MMDA’s Traffic Adjudication Division.
If the Traffic Adjudication Division gives an unfavorable ruling, motorists are allotted 15 days to file a motion for reconsideration. If this is denied, they still get another chance: A further appeal can be filed with the MMDA chairman, which seems to be the last stop, as his decision is final.
An uncontested original summons means a final notice to the vehicle owner or operator. If the fine for the violation is left unpaid, the vehicle’s license plate will be on the alarm list sent to the Land Transportation Office, and the result would be the non-renewal of the vehicle’s registration until the fine is paid.
