The MMDA is also the body that implements the color coding scheme in Metro Manila as a way to reduce the vehicle congestion most especially on the main roads. However, recently, there were persons who identified themselves as MMDA enforcers but they were not associated with the government agency.

Recently, a video of a man who pretended to be an officer of the government agency went viral. He caught a motorist over an alleged violation and tried to extort money. When the motorist asked for his ID, he suddenly fled.

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority investigated the situation. In a recent post of the government agency, it denied that the man who pretended to be a traffic enforcer is part of the agency or connected to them.
