- MMDA just announced that they will no longer tow illegally parked vehicles
- Instead, they will just charge fines to the owners
- According to MMDA, this is to lessen the issue about some abusive towing firms
As announced by Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA), they will stop towing vehicles spotted in illegal parking spaces. This is to lessen the irregularities along the major thoroughfares and alternative routes like Mabuhay lanes and EDSA.
KAMI learned from GMA News that as per MMDA General Manager Jojo Garcia, “There are many complaints about abusive towing firms. We do not want the efforts of our traffic personnel to go to waste because of them,”
The MMDA will instead issue tickets and slap a fine to the owners of the illegally parked vehicles along the Mabuhay lanes connected to the highway of EDSA.
The violators will be fined with at least three tickets from 6 A.M. to 9 P.M. and will be charged P200 for illegal parking, P150 for obstruction and P150 for neglecting the traffic signs.
This new regulation will also ease the traffics because tow trucks will no longer use inner lanes as requested by the local government units (LGU).
In a previous report by KAMI, MMDA has strictly regulated their ‘5-minute rule’ to illegal parking. They now record a video upon the owner’s arrival up until 5 minutes. Once it goes beyond 5:00 mins, they will immediately fine the owner.
