Here’s the list of uniform penalties for upcoming STS

Last week, the Metro Manila Council (MMC), which consists of all the mayors in the National Capital Region (NCR), unanimously voted to adopt the 28-year-old proposal Metro Manila Single Ticketing System (STS). Its implementation, according to Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA), will be within Q1 of this year.

Under the new STS, all cities within NCR will have a uniform implementation, as well as a standardized table of penalties for the 20 most common traffic violations.


All cities within Metro Manila will be imposing the following penalties for motorcycle-specific traffic violations (1st to subsequent offenses):

Republic Act 10054 or Motorcycle Helmet Act of 2009 – PHP 1,500 to PHP 10,000
