P3,000 fine for towed cars

The government Inter-Agency Committee on Traffic has increased the fine motorists have to pay if their vehicles are towed away for illegal parking, a new measure to deter against obstruction in major roads in the metropolis, a Metropolitan Manila Development Authority official said.

From the P500 penalty previously imposed by the MMDA, IACT teams operating against illegal parking are now using Land Transportation Office LTO tickets that set the fine against illegal parking and obstruction to P3,000.

“Since LTO and LTFRB have joined the anti-illegal parking team, we have been using the LTO traffic violation tickets,” said Victor Nunez, MMDA head of the MMDA’s Towing Operations Group, during the agency’s radio program over DZBB. (Anna Liza V. Alavaren)
