Netizen Charged w/ P54k Penalty Fee Over Illegal Parking Violation
A netizen gets surprised and expressed his disappointment after his illegal parking violation fee has reached P54,250.
The Facebook page “Philippines CCTV & DASH CAM Spotted” has shared the violation ticket received by a netizen for committing a traffic violation. The post spread like a wildfire online and elicits comments from the netizens.
A netizen named Rommel Estrella narrated that he was apprehended last January 8, 2020 over an illegal parking violation. However, he failed to pay the penalty immediately due to certain reasons.
On Wednesday (October 22, 2020), Estrella went to OPPS (Traffic Enforcer Antipolo) for the computation of his penalty fee. He was shocked after learning that his penalty fee has reached P54, 250.
The computation shows that the illegal parking violation is worth P5,000 and the days he failed to get his license were multiplied by P250, which reached a total amount of P54, 250. The violator complained that the amount is too big for his simple violation.
Here is the full post:
“Mga mam/sir patulong po sana ako d ko po alam kung paano gagawin dito. Nahuli po ako january,08,2020
Tapos kanina lang po ako nag punta sa office ng opps( traffic inforcer antipolo) pina compute ko po kung mag kano ko matutubos ang license ko. At tinanung ko sila kung nandun pa. Sabi nila nandun pa daw. Tapos ibinigay sakin ang computation. Nagulat ako sa halaga. Pumatak po sya ng 54k ang violation ko ay illegal parking lang. Ano po kaya gagawin ko? Wala po akong ganyang halaga. Sino po kaya pwedeng lapitan para hindi ganyan kamahal ang babayaran.
Salamat po please respect. Godbless
