The No Contact Apprehension Program took effect today, July 1 in 15 major roads in Quezon City following the dry run of the program from October 2021 to June 2022.
“Road safety is our priority. Inaasahan namin na magiging disiplinado ang mga motorista at susunod sa traffic regulations sa tulong ng NCAP,” QC Task Force for Transport and Traffic Management head Dexter Cardenas said.
NCAP will utilize state-of-the-art cameras with artificial intelligence technology to capture, photograph, and record the conduction stickers and plate numbers of vehicles in violation of traffic rules and regulations. It will be implemented 24/7 in select roads in the city.
The program will take effect on the following roads: Quirino Highway (Susano Road, Zabarte Road, and Tandang Sora Ave-Sangandaan), E. Rodriguez (Tomas Morato, Gilmore, Hemady), Aurora Blvd. (Hemady, Gilmore, Broadway, 20th Street), West Ave (Baler), East Ave (BIR Rd.), Kamias (Kalayaan), and P. Tuazon (13th, 15th).
To verify a Notice of Violation or to check your plate number, visit the nocontact.quezoncity.gov.ph site. The NOV will be received within fourteen (14) days (for QC residents) or more (for non-QC residents) through e-mail and/or a private courier.
Motorists who received a NOV, may pay the corresponding fine, within thirty (30) days from receipt thereof, online via nocontact.quezoncity.gov.ph website, over-the-counter in select banks, or cash payment at the Ground Flr, DPOS Building, QC Hall Compound in Kalayaan Avenue.
A monthly penalty of 5% surcharge against violators for NOVs that remain unpaid beyond the 30-day period will be imposed.
Motorists who would want to contest their NOV can file an appeal to the QC Traffic Adjudication Board (QC TAB) within ten (10) days from receipt of their NOV. The QC TAB is located at the QC Department of Public Order and Safety.
Traffic enforcers will still apprehend and issue Ordinance Violation Receipts to violators on roads that are not covered by NCAP.1
“With the NCAP in full gear, we expect motorists to be more careful and disciplined when plying our roads. We want to instill in them that no one is exempted when it comes to traffic rules and regulations,” Mayor Joy Belmonte said.
“We are committed to ensure the safety of our constituents first, bawal ang pasaway na driver sa QC. Iwas-kotong at iwas-hawahan pa ng Covid and sistemang ito kaya wala dapat ipangamba ang mga motorista kung hindi naman sila umalabag sa batas-trapiko,” the mayor added.
