Members of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority will be using body cameras starting December 9.
20 high-definition body cameras from a private company will be worn by traffic enforcers at chokepoint areas that frequently experience heavy traffic in Epifanio Delos Santos Avenue (EDSA).
The body cameras can record videos for about eight hours, can take clear footages in night due to infrared light-emitting diode (LED), and is water resistant.
According to MMDA Chairman Danilo Lim, the body cameras will greatly help in catching the wrongdoings of both motorists and enforcers.
The MMDA is also planning to equip enforcers with batons since they are frequently confronted by angry and abusive motorists.
