Manila to deploy cameras for contactless traffic management

account_balanceManila News account_circleNoah James chat_bubble_outline0 Comments

Manila will prevent traffic enforcers from arresting traffic violators on the spot that in effect causes further road congestion.  Instead, it will deploy more CCTVs for the contactless apprehension of traffic violators.

The Land Transportation Office (LTO) and the city of Manila signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) during the groundbreaking of the construction of a P30 million three-story building for the LTO Manila Licensing Center and LTO Manila North District Office in Tayuman, Manila.

Under the agreement, the Manila government and the LTO would both have direct access to the motorists database.

A camera-based system will help both Manila traffic enforcers and the LTO team to identify violators without the need for human intervention.

The specialized cameras would be installed in strategic locations in Manila to monitor and identify erring motorists.

Based on what was recorded on camera, the city government and the LTO will then deliver the traffic ticket or Ordinance Violation Receipt to the violator’s address.

The recipient is expected to respond either by settling the penalty or by requesting a hearing if the citation is being contested.

During the signing of the MOA, Moreno bared that there are around 50,000 unclaimed licenses in Manila.

The memorandum showed that the city of Manila had the highest incidence of road and vehicular accidents in Metro Manila.

“I don’t want the city of Manila to get rich because of the penalty being paid by the citizens which means the city has no discipline,” he said.

With the reintegration of data, traffic violators will not be able to renew their registrations without paying the fine.
