The Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) re-implemented the No Contact Traffic Apprehension Policy last April 15, 2016. This approach in monitoring traffic flow and violations in Metro Manila utilizes CCTV cameras and other gadgets to identify drivers that go against traffic rules in Metro Manila. Violators are issued summons from the MMDA through personal service of an MMDA personnel, registered mail, or courier service. When the vehicle owner receives the summon or violation notice, he has to settle the fine at the MMDA main office or through any of MMDA’s payment centers.
Here is a step-by-step process on how to settle your MMDA Traffic Violation:
1. If your violation notice has not exceeded 7 days yet, you may pay your fine at the nearest Metrobank branch or any of the following MMDA payment centers below:
- Meralco Complex – Gate 2, Ortigas Ave., Pasig City
- Pinagkamaligan, Tanay – MA Roxas St., Brgy. Pinagkamaligan (beside Meralco Office)
- Tropical Hut Taytay – Ortigas Ave., Ext., Corner E. Rodriguez Ave., Taytay, Rizal
- Ever Commonwealth
- Gulod Novaliches – 873 Quirino Hi-way (beside Meralco Nova).
- Pritil, Tondo – Juan Luna St., (beside Puregold Pritil), Tondo, Manila
- Cangatba, Porac – Cangatba (back of Municipal Hall of Porac), Porac, Pampanga
- Ultra Mega Paliparan – Paliparan Road (inside Ultra Mega Supermarket), Dasmarinas, Cavite
- Zapote Arcade – beside Puregold Zapote, corner Quirino, Zapote Road.
- Romacom, Muntinlupa – Romacom Bldg., (beside PNB Poblacion), Muntinlupa City
2. If your violation notice has exceeded 7 days, you need to proceed to the MMDA Redemption Office located at Edsa cor. Orense St., Guadalupe Nuevo, Makati City. Pay your clearance fee at Window 1.
3. If you have more than 3 unpaid violations, you need to attend the Traffic Academy and secure a Certificate of Attendance before you can pay the total amount of your accumulated violations.
4. For any disputes or contentions on your violation notice, you may proceed to the MMDA Traffic Adjudication Division.
Before proceeding to the MMDA office or before making any payments, make sure that the violation was issued by an MMDA enforcer. Check with a local traffic enforcer.
Violators who refuse to pay their fines, in spite of receiving a Final Notice from the MMDA, will not be allowed to renew their vehicle’s registration. The violator and details of the vehicle will also be included in the Alarm List and will be reported to LTO.
