This new ordinance was supposed to be in effect last week. But due to the lack of information, the police were distributing this flyer as a warning. No one has been arrested so far.
This ordinance I heard was patterned from similar ordinance in Davao City and Marikina among others. It was authored by SB Joel Bolante. This was enacted probably to curb the killings done by men riding-in-tandem using the motocycle.
I have not seen the full text of this ordinance but judging from the flyer below, I personally see it as a violation of everyone’s right to ride with anyone they want. This is simply illegal profiling.
Personally I find this ordinance unnecessary.
