THE Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) announced that the re-enforcement of the “no-contact apprehension” policy to catch erring motorists via closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras will take effect on Friday. MMDA Chairman Emerson Carlos said traffic violators will be sent notices specifying the date, time, location and infraction committed. They also have the right to contest the same before the MMDA-Traffic Adjudication Division (TAD) within seven days upon receipt of the summons. If the Motion for Reconsideration is denied, they may file an appeal before the Office of the Chairman, where the decision shall be final and executory. Upon lapse of the seven-day period to contest the violation, the MMDA will send the final notice to the motorist. Failure to pay the fine upon final notice, the MMDA will include the vehicle’s license number in the “alarm list” to be forwarded to the Land Transportation Office (LTO).
