The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) on Tuesday, September 8, said that the licenses of about 9,000 drivers with multiple traffic violations would be suspended.

MMDA General Manager Jojo Garcia told reporters that the agency had submitted over 10,000 names to the Land Transportation Office in the past year, and so far, around 1,000 licenses have been suspended.

Under Republic Act No. 4136 or the Land Transportation and Traffic Code, licenses can be suspended up to 90 days. Drivers will receive a show-cause order from the LTO and will have to attend a hearing to explain themselves.

The announcement came as MMDA pushed for road safety, having been “alarmed” of rising barrier-related crash incidents along EDSA.
