The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) will conduct a one-week dry run of the High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) Lane along EDSA starting on Monday, December 11, at 6 a.m.
Under ths scheme, only those with two passengers or more will be allowed to pass through the HOV Lane. The HOV Lane is located at the fifth and leftmost lane of EDSA.
Motorcycle riders can also use the HOV lane.
Private car drivers with no companion can still use the motorcycle lane (second) and third lane from the MRT.
“Violators will be apprehended via no-contact apprehension policy and will be meted a P500 fine,” the MMDA said.
The MMDA also said the Metro Manila Council approved the lowering of speed limit from a maximum of 60 kilometer per hour to 50 kph in order to minimize vehicular accidents.
