Due to the alarming increase in the number of accidents involving motorcycles around the country, the Land Transportation Office (LTO) issued an Administrative Order providing the use, traffic rules and operating regulations regarding motorcycles on highways.

The following are some of the provisions included in the administrative order:

5. Wearing of a standard helmet.

6. The use of motorcycle equipments and accessories such as ng headlight, tail light, signal light, brake light, side mirror and horn.

The administrative order also includes the punishments and penalties to the violators.

For drivers and passengers not wearing the helmet, a fine of one thousand five hundred pesos (P 1, 500) with an accessory penalty of the driver or the rider attending a traffic management seminar to be conducted by the LTO shall be imposed.

For carrying passengers other than one (1) back rider or cargo exceeding the prescribed limit, a fine of one thousand pesos (P 1,000) shall be imposed.

The OTMPS will be implementing these rules and regulations strictly and will be enforcing the prescribed penalties and punishment to those who will violate the provisions provided in the administrative order.

‘Ang batas trapiko ay napakasimple and it will make a huge difference if the motorists will follow all of them. Hindi lamang nito mababawasan ang mga aksidente kundi ipapakita nito ang kanilang disiplina,” Mayor Gordon said.
