The senate bill filed by Sen. Villanueva is one of the measures to help the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) and other metropolitan areas to minimize the traffic problems in the Philippines.

Senate Bill 1165 will mandate "any person, whether natural or juridical, with residence or business address in metropolitan areas such as, but not limited to Metro Manila, Angeles, Bacolod, Baguio, Batangas, CDO, Cebu, Dagupan, Davao, Iloilo, Naga, and Olongapo, who intends to purchase a motor vehicle" to present a notarized affidavit that will attest to the availability of a 'permanent parking space or facility or that a parking space or facility has been leased or procured' for the vehicle that will be purchased.

Based upon the Senate Bill, a copy of the notarized affidavit shall be presented and given to the Land Transportation Office (LTO) as a pre-requisite for registration. The document shall remain in file with the LTO and will be used as evidence should the the existence of such parking space for the vehicle under registered owner's name be contested. 

The MMDA already made some measures to clear illegally parked vehicles to ease traffic, Sen. Villanueva just wanted to show his support to what the MMDA did by filing the "No Garage, No Car" bill.
