Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) advises motorists to check their vehicles in time with the holiday season wherein heavy traffic virtually everywhere is to be expected.
According to MMDA spokesperson Tina Velasco, checking the vehicles of motorists must be done as a protective measure. This is also in line with the prevention from road-related accidents.
Velasco related “domino effect” to how held up vehicles can affect traffic and even worsen it.
In relation to this, higher penalty is suggested by MMDA as far as illegal parking is concerned. The suggestion was raised during the meeting of the Metro Manila Council (MMC), added Velasco.
MMC is made up of 17 local chief executives of Metro Manila.
