Muntinlupa City has not yet implemented NCAP – Mayor Ruffy Biazon
In a tweet last August 16, 2022, Muntinlupa Mayor Ruffy Biazon clarified that amidst a news article claiming Muntinlupa is one of the cities implementing the No Contact Apprehension Policy, he has not given his approval of its implementation in the city.
In the article by Inquirer.net also last Aug. 16, it mentioned that Muntinlupa was one of the cities that are currently implementing NCAP.
“But the mayors of Parañaque, Valenzuela, Quezon City, Manila, and Muntinlupa where the NCAP was being implemented, stood by NCAP, saying it has helped them improve traffic conditions and reduce corruption among enforcers,” the article noted.
Biazon then quoted the article and explained that although the previous administration was the one responsible for the contract to implement NCAP, he has not given his go signal yet.
“Correction to this article…Muntinlupa City has not yet implemented NCAP, even though the previous administration entered into the contract. Also, I have not given any statement yet on whether we will implement it or not,” explained the new Muntinlupa mayor.
Biazon was referring to former Mayor Jaime Fresnedi’s administration’s move wherein they invited the public last year to a hearing to discuss the proposed ordinance on NCAP.
We are not sure if this sign is still up but we have notified MTMB and City Hall about this during our last conversation with them.
So there neighbors, the Mayor has spoken — NO NCAP IN MUNTINLUPA YET.
Here’s to hoping that all necessary measures are studied and carried out before the No Contact Apprehension Policy is implemented, not only in Muntinlupa but in other cities (Hello Parañaque!) as well to avoid confusion and harbor fairness in traffic violation apprehension/fines.
Drive safely, neighbors!
