The Metro Manila Council (MMC) on Tuesday has approved a P500 standard fine for jaywalking violators all over the metropolis.
Francis Tolentino, MMDA Chairman, the Metro Manila Council meeting on Tuesday, noted it is high time for the agency to increase the fines on jaywalking due to the growing number of the victims.
According to Tolentino they will begin implementing the new anti-jaywalking ordinance in cities that have the most incidents of jaywalking following proper publication.
Aside from paying a P500 fine, violators have the option of cleaning the esteros or canals for three hours.
Violators are also currently required to attend a 30-minute seminar on proper pedestrian etiquette.
