The Quezon City government on Thursday, Oct.14, explained the violation process for the No Contact Apprehension Program (NCAP).

According to Department of Public Order and Safety (DPOS) head, retired Police Brig. Gen. Elmo San Diego, there are high-resolution cameras installed at the city’s road intersections that will record violations for 24 hours.

The DPOS will save four photographs and a 20-second video that will be used as evidence once the owner of the vehicle is identified.

San Diego said that they will send a notice to the violators within 14 days, stating his fine based on the violation committed.

Violators are given 30 days to settle the penalties or to file an appeal.

The local government set the pilot run of NCAP from Oct. 11 to Nov. 11.

Fines will not be applied during this period.

However, violators are required to settle their fees after the pilot run.

Currently, there are three security cameras installed in Quezon City — one on Kamias Road, and two on P. Tuazon Boulevard.

San Diego reiterated that the program aims to discipline motorists, not for government profit.
