The No Contact Traffic Apprehension is a policy that utilizes CCTV, digital cameras and/or other gadgets or technology to capture videos and images to apprehend vehicles violating traffic laws, rules and regulations.

Powered by a network of 36 HD CCTV cameras and sensors, the new method works day and night, 24/7, rain or shine. A central command center monitors the entire system.

When a traffic violation is committed, NCAP cameras records the erring motorist’s license plate. The video notes the date, time and location of the violation. This video evidence is then sent to MPTB for processing, using information from the Land Transportation Office (LTO).

Fines and penalties

Once caught, motorists will be fined P2,000 (first offense), P3,000 (second offense) and P4,000 (third offense) for the following violations:

  • disobedience to traffic control signals and signs
  • obstruction of pedestrian lanes
  • driving on yellow box, over speeding
  • non-wearing of helmet for motorcycle riders, and
  • disregard to lane markings

Meanwhile, a much heavier fine of P3,000 (first offense), P4,000 (second offense), and P5,000 (third offense) await violators who committed:

  • counter-flowing
  • reckless driving, and
  • non-wearing of seatbelts

Should a motorist happen to have a traffic violation, the notice will be sent to the vehicle owner’s address via registered mail two weeks after the date of the alleged violation. These then must be settled at the MTPB main office, or designated banks and remittance centers. Failure to pay the fine means the traffic violator cannot renew their vehicle’s registration, on top of additional fines.
