MMDA Adds More Payment Sites for Traffic, Non-Traffic Violations
Starting June 20, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) will be adding more payment centers nationwide to provide convenient service to motorists cited for traffic and other street violations in the metropolis.
MMDA Chairman Emerson Carlos today signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with Dennis Yaw of SM Bills Payment, and Manuel Tuazon, president and Chief Executive Officer of Bayad Centers, to enable the general public to settle their fines for traffic, littering, jaywalking, no contact apprehension violations at payment centers and mall’s payment kiosks (selected branches only).
Carlos said motorists can now easily pay the fines for the violations via additional payment centers even on weekends when the accredited bank, Metrobank, and the MMDA redemption and payment center in Makati City are closed.
The MMDA chief said it is more beneficial and advantageous to violators who are residing in the provinces since they could settle the fines at the nearest Bayad Center.
“We are making available all the facilities near them (violators) to settle the fines immediately and avoid being on the alarm list of government agencies when they are applying for a clearance or renewing their vehicle registration,” Carlos said.
As a consequence for not settling the fines for traffic violation, motorists could not renew their driver’s license or registration before the Land Transportation Office, which the MMDA has connectivity with.
At present, violators can only settle the fines in all Metrobank branches and MMDA redemption center.
