QC Folks, There's an App That Could Save You From Shady Enforcers
Never pay for unreasonable "fines" ever again.
(SPOT.ph) If you’ve been driving around the Metro for a while now, chances are you’ve found yourself behind the steering wheel while a traffic enforcer asks for your license together with, ahem, a little something more. You might have found yourself hopeless in these situations, but you don’t always have to be! Well, if you’re in Quezon City, at least. The city's local government just launched the Batas QC mobile app—and you're probably going to need it.
Through the app, users can have access to the list of Quezon City's local ordinances, along with the penalties and fines associated with certain violations. Anyone with an Android phone can download the app as of writing. It’s still tagged as “Unreleased” on Google Play Store, but you can already use it while it's under development.
Ordinance enforcers in Quezon City are also expected to have the app on their phones so that they can show violators the corresponding fines for their actions.
Batas QC also provides announcements concerning roads, transportation, garbage, health care, and other issues. Though similar apps listing Philippine laws and Republic Acts already exist, it's the first mobile app that focuses on local ordinances. Best of all, you don’t need to be connected to the Internet to access the list!
this strange new world.
