Thousands of violations were captured by the CCTV of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority shortly after the Supreme Court suspended the implementation of the non-contact apprehension policy in Metro Manila.

Data collated from the MMDA showed that from 31 August to 6 September or a seven-day period, a total of 3,582 violations were captured by the MMDA CCTV which was being utilized during the implementation of NCAP.

An MMDA source said the violations were just being recorded by the monitoring team manning the CCTV cameras of the agency but they will not be issued citation tickets.

According to the data provided by the MMDA Public Information Office the violations range from loading/unloading, disregarding traffic signs, number coding, dress code for riders, obstruction, and illegal parking (attended and unattended).

To recall, the Supreme Court on 30 August issued a temporary restraining order stopping the implementation of the NCAP in at least four Metro Manila cities.

In a resolution, the high court en banc also set oral arguments on the petitions separately filed by lawyer Juman Paa and Kilusan sa Pagbabago ng Industriya ng Tranportasyon, Inc., Pasang Masda, Alliance of Transport Operators and Drivers Association of the Philippines, and Alliance of Concerned Transport Organization.

The oral arguments proceeding will be held on 24 January 2023.

The SC also said that any apprehensions under the NCAP shall be prohibited until further orders.
