MPD said the stop-and-go scheme, a frequently observed phenomenon in congested highway traffic where there are short periods of enforced stops will be implemented around UST to ensure smooth flow of traffic within its vicinity for the duration of 2018 bar examination.

Parking will also be strictly prohibited on the streets along España Blvd., A.H. Lacson Ave., Dapitan Street and P. Noval.
