The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has suspended the No Contact Apprehension Policy, after the Supreme Court issued a temporary restraining order (TRO) on its implementation.

The TRO is effective immediately and until further orders from the Court. It also prohibits any apprehensions through the program and related ordinances, covering Manila, Quezon City, Valenzuela City, Parañaque City, Muntinlupa, the Land Transportation Office (LTO), and the MMDA.

The TRO was issued in response to petitions from several transport groups, Kilusan sa Pagbabago ng Industriya ng Transportasyon Inc. (KAPIT), Pangkalahatang Sagguniang Manila and Suburbs Drivers Association Nationwide (Pasang-Masda), Alliance of Transport Operators and Drivers Association of the Philippines (ALTODAP), and Alliance of Concerned Transport Organization (ACTO).

The No Contact Apprehension Program or NCAP uses CCTVs and traffic cameras, usually located near stop lights and intersections, to capture videos and images to apprehend vehicles violating traffic laws, rules, and regulations.

Leading to its suspension, the NCAP was highly criticized for the way it enforced violations, its heavy penalty fees, and the lack of information regarding its regulations.
