The worsening traffic in the National Capital Region is partly caused by a lack of systemic lack of training among traffic enforcers of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA).

The Commission on Audit (COA) revealed on Monday that out Of the 2,382 traffic enforcement personnel of the MMDA, only 574 attended training seminars provided by the agency in 2015.


Only 323 of 427 newly-hired traffic auxiliaries finished the course meant to help them improve their knowledge for the job. From these only 14 passed the seminar. An additional 185 (57%) failed, while 117 did not even take the test. Seven individuals were unaccounted for.

MMDA has two sub-offices mandated to provide training for these personnel. These offices are the Traffic Education Division (TED) and the Institute of Traffic Management (ITM).

TED provides training for new hires while ITM  handles basic traffic management courses as well as road digging seminars.

"Despite the poor training results, no re-orientation seminars were conducted during the year for those who failed to pass the evaluation. Moreover, the 72 participants who failed to complete and the 32 who did not attend the orientation seminars were not required to complete or attend [anymore]." Said the auditing team. MJM
