THE METRO Manila Council, a policy-making body led by the capital region’s 17 mayors, approved on Wednesday the adoption of a single ticketing system for traffic violations.   

The system is contained in the Metro Manila Traffic Code of 2023, which harmonizes transport and traffic management in the region, including apprehension procedures and fines and penalties.  

The Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA), which implements metro-wide services and policies, said the standardized fines and penalties will be endorsed to the Land Transportation Office and local councils for adoption.  

“The single ticketing system would help avoid confusion among our driving public, as well as option to pay electronically for their violations. Driver’s license will also not be confiscated during apprehension,” MMDA Acting Chairman Romando S. Artes said in a statement.   

San Juan City Mayor Francis M. Zamora, president of the metro council, said the single ticketing system would take effect within the first quarter.  

“The Metro Manila LGUs (local government units) 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,” he said.
