To fund the medical expenses of dialysis patients in Valenzuela City, its government had entered a joint venture agreement (JVA) with a traffic systems company for the No Contact Apprehension Program (NCAP), it was announced on Wednesday.
The city government signed the JVA with the QPax Traffic Systems Inc. for the development, management, and operation of the NCAP in the city.
The first phase of the NCAP will be implemented in July, the city government said.
The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) defined the NCAP as a policy that utilizes closed-circuit television (CCTV), digital cameras, and other technology to capture images and videos of motorists violating traffic laws, rules, and regulations.
Motorists caught violating the traffic rules will be sent the traffic citation ticket specifying the date, time, place, and traffic violation committed, the MMDA added. The violators will then be fined.
The NCAP equipment will be installed along the busiest intersections of the city, the city government said.
The QPax Traffic Systems Inc. had provided CCTVs in another city last year.
Thousands of violators have also been apprehended last year through the NCAP, an MMDA report showed.
