A heads up for our readers in Cavite, and those who frequent the province.
Per the Facebook page of CAVITEX, the expressway's management announced that they have set up two checkpoints along the expressway. This is despite the NCR Plus rule announced by the IATF yesterday.
To recap, NCR Plus includes the provinces of Bulacan, Laguna, Rizal, and Cavite. Per the rules of the GCQ bubble, there is free travel between the National Capital Region and the mentioned provinces. So, why are there checkpoints along CAVITEX if Cavite falls under the jurisdiction?
Per the Department of Transport (DOTr), the checkpoints fall under the scope of the LGUs (Local Government Units), DILG (Department of Interior and Local Government), and the PNP (Philippine National Police). With that, do not be alarmed if you see checkpoints in other places aside from the ones along CAVITEX.
According to CAVITEX management, there are two checkpoints in place. One is located at the Longos Exit, the first exit of the expressway. The second one is just past the Kawit Toll Plaza. These checkpoints are manned by the Philippine National Police. Both these checkpoints are on the Cavite-bound section of the highway.
As a reminder, always bring the necessary documents to avoid hassles at checkpoints. If you have a passenger with you, wear a mask. Also, be reminded of the curfew that starts from 10:00 PM to 5:00 AM. Only essential workers (medical, media, etc.), cargo vehicles, and public transport operators are exempted from the curfew.
