Quezon City, the local government unit of the city of Quezon, has recently announced the implementation of its version of the No Contact Apprehension (NCAP) program, which already began on July 1, 2022.
There is a list of cameras in Quezon City that are set up for “No Contact Apprehension.”
The Quezon City Local Government provided no further information when the announcement was made. Despite this, a post published by the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) provided more insight into QC’s plans.
As part of the NCAP scheme, Quezon City posted (and named) the 15 roads that will be monitored for the duration of the scheme.
What Are the Monitored Roads in Quezon City?
The program will take effect on the following roads:
- Quirino Highway – Susano Road (Novaliches Bayan)
- Quirino Highway – Zabarte Road
- Quirino Highway – Tandang Sora (Sangandaan)
- E. Rodriguez – Tomas Morato
- E. Rodriguez – Gilmore
- E Rodriguez – Hemady
- Aurora – Hemady
- Aurora – Gilmore
- Aurora – Broadway
- Aurora – 20th street
- West Avenue – Baler
- East Avenue – BIR
- Kamias – Kalayaan
- P. Tuazon – 13th
- P. Tuazon – 15th
With the help of state-of-the-art cameras with artificial intelligence technology, NCAP will capture, photograph, and record the plate number and conduction stickers of vehicles that violate traffic regulations and rules in violation of the law. During the program’s implementation, select routes in the city will be monitored 24/7.
How Will I Know if I Have Violations?
The site Quezon City | No Contact Apprehension can be accessed if you wish to verify the validity of a Notice of Violation (NOV) and check the number of your plates.
NOVs will be received by e-mail and a private courier within fourteen (14) days (for Quezon City residents) or more (for non-Quezon City residents).
How to Pay for My Violations/Penalties?
The penalties can be paid online through the following:
- Quezon City | No Contact Apprehension website
- Over-the-counter at selected banks
- Paying Cash (Located on Ground Floor DPOS Building, Quezon City Hall Compound, Kalayaan Avenue, Brgy. Central, Quezon City)
Remember to pay within thirty (30) days of the issuance of their NOV.
Will There Be Any Penalties for Not Paying on Time?
NOVs remaining unpaid after 30 days will be assessed a 5% monthly penalty.
Can I File for an Appeal?
Yes. However, this will only be applicable within ten (10) days after receiving an NOV. Motorists who wish to contest the NOV can file an appeal to the QC Traffic Adjudication Board (QC TAB).
QC Tab can be found at the QC Department of Public Order and Safety – Gate 3, DPOS Building, Quezon City Hall Compound, Kalayaan Avenue, Brgy. Central, Quezon City
How Will the Non-covered Routes Be Monitored?
Despite the NCAP, traffic enforcers will still be able to apprehend violators along non-covered routes and issue Ordinance Violation Receipts to enforce the laws.
