Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, July 1) — The local government of Quezon City on Friday started the full implementation of no contact apprehension for traffic violators traversing the city.

Its No Contact Apprehension Program (NCAP) is in effect 24/7 and will cover all kinds of traffic violations, the local government said.

Cameras are placed along the city’s major roads and intersections, including Quirino Highway, E. Rodriguez, Aurora Boulevard, West and East Avenues, Kamias Road, and P. Tuazon Avenue. Signages are also posted in the said areas.

A notice of violation will be delivered to the registered owner of the vehicle through the city’s process server, registered mail, or private courier, the Quezon City government said. It added that delivery for residents will be within two weeks since the apprehension but it may take longer for non-residents.

Violators who would like to appeal may do so through the city’s Traffic Adjudication Board within 10 days from receipt of the notice of violation.

The local government, however, noted that traffic enforcers will continue to apprehend motorists who will commit offenses, issue ordinance violation receipts, and confiscate driver’s licenses.

If an erring motorist was caught doing the same violation both by the enforcer and through the NCAP, the local government said the former’s apprehension will prevail.
