Of 2,211 jaywalkers, only 388 paid fine

THE Metropolitan Manila Development Authority yesterday said 2,211 jaywalkers were apprehended from January 1 to February 14 this year. 

MMDA general manager Thomas Orbos said 388 of the 2,211 violators have settled the fines. Violators have the option to pay P500 or render a three-hour community service. 

Orbos reminded motorists and public utility vehicle drivers to load and unload passengers on designated areas.

Many passengers hail buses and taxis in non-designated areas during morning and evening rush hours. 

Orbos said the MMDA will apprehend passengers who will violate the policy. 

He also said they will dispatch a bus with traffic enforcers to give lectures to violators on road safety and traffic signs. -- Evan Orias
