In detail, the more cars owned and registered, the higher the MVUC should be imposed. The second car of a person shall have the MVUC that’s 30% higher for the first year, 60% for the second year, so on and so forth.
 
As for the succeeding vehicles, the MVUC will be increased at a rate in accordance to the given pattern and formula.
 
Garin as quoted as saying: "Persons engaged in the business of transportation or whose business requires more than one vehicle is not covered by the increased rates.”
 
The volume of cars sold is expected to surge as the Philippines’ auto market is on the verge of setting a new sales record. Almost 2.7 million cars ply through the metro every day, which can lead to an increase in traffic problems. Therefore, this bill aims to lower the growing volume of cars in Metro Manila.
