MMDA to continue clearing roads near schools

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority will continue clearing streets leading to public schools in the National Capital Region to ensure the unimpeded flow of traffic for students.

Edison “Bong” Nebrija, MMDA Task Force Special Operations commander, said traffic congestion within the vicinity of public schools often spilled over to major roads across the metropolis.

“Most public schools are mostly located on secondary streets which are heavily congested during the opening of classes. Our concern is this might cause spillover effect to major roads like Edsa. We are preparing for this,” Nebrija said. “We will continue our clearing operations until the opening of classes in private schools next week.”

During the first day of classes on June 3, the MMDA apprehended more than 80 motorists for illegal parking and other violations in Quezon City.

MMDA chairperson Danilo Lim ordered the towing of vehicles during inspection and clearing operations within the vicinity of Corazon Aquino Elementary School and Batasan Hills National High School in Batasan Hills, and Ramon Magsaysay High School in Cubao, all in Quezon City.

Members of the Task Force Special Operations apprehended 21 unattended illegally parked vehicles, 12 attended illegally parked vehicles, 21 motorcycle riders for not wearing helmets, three motorists for disregarding traffic signs, and confiscated one fishball cart from the sidewalk for obstruction.

The joint operations of the MMDA and QC Tricycle Regulatory Unit apprehended 20 tricycles for overloading.

The MMDA is imposing fines of P1,000 for attended illegally parked vehicles; P2,000 for unattended illegally parked vehicles; and P1,000 for obstruction of public roads.
