In line with San Juan City’s clamping ordinance,  Mayor Francis Zamora signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with Starpay, allowing for motorists to settle for their clamping violations through Starpay and QRPH.

The Mayor recently led the clamping operation from Club Filipino Avenue in Greenhills which includes Annapolis St., Missouri St. and other roads leading to the Mabuhay Lanes.

The operation follows the amendment of the San Juan City Wheel Clamping Ordinance (C.O. No. 70, Series of 2022) and Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Resolution No. 10, Series of 2010, which emphasized that illegally parked vehicles along Mabuhay Lanes and city roads will be clamped by the authorities.

The Mayor explained “Dahil nasa gitna po ng Metro Manila ang San Juan. Ang mga sasakyan ay passing through lamang,  mataas ang transient vehicles  kaya’t kinakailangan ipatupad ang ordinance. Gusto natin magkaroon ng disiplina ang ating mga motorista (San Juan is in the middle of Metro Manila and most of the motorists are just passing through. This leads to  a high rate of transient vehicles.  It is important that our motorists practice discipline).”

Illegally parked vehicles will pay a fine of P500 for motorcycles, P1,500 for cars, AUVs and jeepneys, and P2000 for cargo trucks, delivery vans, and passenger buses.  Motorists caught attempting to remove the wheel clamp will be fined P5,000. Public emergency vehicles like fire trucks, police mobiles, and ambulances are exempted.

Motorists can pay the fine via online transaction by scanning Starpay’s QRPH code, allowing all major banks and e-wallets to also settle through the said QR code. When they show their proof of payment to the traffic enforcers, the clamps on their vehicles will be removed. This allows for more convenience since vehicle owners need not go to the city hall to settle their fines.  

Ryan Uy, Starpay Product Head explains “each traffic enforcer will have their own dedicated QR code. When the QR code is scanned by the motorist, they can input the fine, convenience fee and the payment purpose. Vehicle owners can use Starpay or other e-wallet systems. The convenience fee for Starpay is  P25.00, while for other e-wallets it’s P50. The convenience fee saves you from the costs incurred when going to city hall.
