MANILA — Metro Manila mayors on Wednesday approved a single ticketing system for traffic violations across the region.
The mayors, in a Metro Manila Council meeting, adopted a traffic code that that would standardize fines and penalties for 20 most common violations.
The system will allow motorists pay fines electronically, noted MMDA Acting Chairman Romando Artes. Driver's license will not be confiscated during apprehension, he added.
“This is a historic moment for all of us because after more than twenty years, Metro Manila is finally adopting the single ticketing system that will highly benefit our motorists,” he said in a statement.
The standardized fines and penalties will be endorsed to the Land Transportation Office and local councils for adoption, the MMDA said.
"The Metro Manila LGUs will have to pass their respective ordinances adapting the Metro Manila Traffic Code 2023 on or before March 15 to fully implement the single ticketing system," said San Juan Mayor Francis Zamora, who also heads the MMC.
The system will cover penalties for the following traffic violations, the MMDA said.
