Transportation Office flexed its muscle to avoid confusion brought about by the No Contact Apprehension Policy implemented by some Local Government Units.

The LGUs, which have been raking in millions of pesos from NCAP fines, insisted they would continue until the undisputed wisdom of the Supreme Court finally put a stop to the activity by the power of a temporary restraining order . But what poor motorists, like taxi drivers and delivery riders, complained about was the seemingly excessive fines they have to pay for a simple violation like when one of their front wheels touched the middle lane.In one night, a taxi driver was fined P7,500, including penalties for late payments. A delivery rider had an accumulated fine of P70,000.

Private communities, like gated subdivisions, are now also putting up their own version of road penalties.
