With Metro Manila possibly transitioning to General Community Quarantine, the Metro Manila Development Authority recently announced that it could implement a Modified Coding scheme.
With the Unified Vehicular Volume Reduction Scheme being suspended since March 13 when the ECQ was likewise put in place, it might be time to bring it back as the Metro goes back to the new normal. Under the new normal or Modified Coding scheme will take its cue from the UVVRP that bans vehicles on certain depending on the license plate’s number. The only difference is that vehicles with a certain number of occupants will be exempted from being flagged down.
Reports even say that cars with two occupants could be exempted from coding. Of course, it’s all speculation at this point. All we can do is wait and see what the Modified Coding will bring. And even more so, if the National Capital Region will even go from MECQ to GCQ.
Stay tuned to this space to know the answers to these questions.
