The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) is planning to place stronger regulation to
prevent jaywalking. In an interview, MMDA spokesperson Celine Pialago stated that jaywalking

community service. However, Pialago admitted those are not enough.
The proposal awaits the result after MMDA tackles it with Metro Manila Council.
