The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has announced the implementation of a 60-kilometer-per hour (kph) speed limit along major roads in Metro Manila.
MMDA Regulation No. 19-001 states that a fine of P1,000 will be imposed against violators of the speed limit.
A fine of P1,000 will be imposed against violators of the speed limit.
“Said vehicular accidents cause needless loss of innocent lives and damage to property which necessitate the adoption of a speed limit for all motor vehicles except buses and trucks,” the MMDA regulation read which was published in newspapers.
The speed limit shall be enforced on circumferential roads, such as Recto Avenue, Pres. Quirino Avenue, Araneta Avenue, EDSA, CP Garcia Avenue and the Southeast Metro Manila Expressway.
It will likewise be implemented on radial roads, which include Roxas Boulevard, Taft Avenue, South Luzon Expressway, Shaw Boulevard, Ortigas Avenue, Magsaysay Boulevard/Aurora Boulevard, Quezon Avenue/Commonwealth Avenue, A. Bonifacio Avenue, Rizal Avenue, Delpan/Marcos Highway/McArthur Highway.
The speed limit shall be enforced on circumferential roads and on radial roads.
Buses and trucks are exempt from the speed limit.
The MMDA has yet to set a definite date for its implementation as it still has to fully inform the public about the policy.
