MANILA, Philippines — The number coding scheme will remain suspended even after the National Capital Region transitioned into modified enhanced community quarantine on Saturday, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) said yesterday.

The MMDA noticed an increase in the number of cars passing through EDSA and other major roads over the weekend.

With the partial reopening of malls, private cars and motorcycles choked quarantine checkpoints along major thoroughfares in the metropolis.

Jose Garcia, general manager of the MMDA, said the number coding scheme would not be lifted.

“It will remain suspended indefinitely,” Garcia said.

The agency suspended the unified vehicular volume reduction program for both private and public vehicles when the government placed Luzon under lockdown on March 13.
