Setup of dash cams in PUVs proposed
by Gaby B. Keith / PIO

To ensure safety and protection of drivers and passengers, installation of dash cams should now become a policy, according to Vice Mayor Edison Bilog, proponent of a measure seeking mandatory use of dash cams in vehicles.

“In other countries like the United States, the legalization of dashboard cameras has led to an 80 percent reduction in vehicular accidents. In the Philippines, recordings made using the device have been used in solving vehicular accidents or road mishaps and even illegal acts committed by traffic enforcers,” Bilog said.

The proposed ordinance includes provisions on the dash cam’s necessary features and restrictions as to its size and placement.

It states that the usage of dash cams as a recording device shall be in compliance with Republic Act 10173 or the Data Privacy Act of 2012, to assure that the data subject/s need to consent before the recording and release of information unless there is legal obligation that requires it to be kept or processed. 

Provided that proper process was followed, data obtained through a dash cam is admissible in court.

The proposal tasks the Baguio City Police Office-Traffic Management Unit in coordination with the Land Transportation Office-CAR to prepare implementing rules and regulations and submit to the City Mayor and city council for approval.

They shall also provide for the types and features of the appropriate dashboard cameras for PUVs.

Both offices are also tasked to conduct regular ocular inspections after the lapse of one year from the approval of the ordinance to ensure that all licensed owners/operators have complied with its requirements.

After the expiration of a one year grace period required by the ordinance for the installation of a dashboard camera system, no PUV shall be allowed registration and renewal of registration by the LTO-CAR.

Violators of the proposed measure will be fined P1,000 for the first offense; P2,500 for the second offense, and P5,000 and confiscation of driver’s license for the third offense.
