MMDA: Physicians and medical doctors just need to show PRC ID cards to be given automatic exemption for violating the number-coding scheme.
After a long time looking for the best solution on how to solve the status of physicians and medical doctors responding to emergency cases after the number-coding scheme or the Unified Vehicular Volume Reduction Program (UVVRP), the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority has finally made a decision.
 
The agency announced that medical practitioners in an emergency only need to show their PRC ID cards (Professional Regulation Commission) in case they are flagged down by traffic enforcers for UVVRP violation.

This will give vehicles carrying person needing immediate medical attention automatic exemption without the need for an MMDA exemption certificate. Doctors and other healthcare personnel will be guaranteed to carry on and continue to their destination.
 
"We are optimistic that this new rule will not be abused by doctors and that they will be conscientious in using this privilege," said Thomas Orbos - MMDA General Manager.
