DAGUPAN CITY -- Stubborn motorcycle riders and backriders better get used to putting on crash helmets as the city government will strictly implement local and national laws pertaining to the use of helmets starting Sept. 25.
Public Order and Safety Office chief Carlito Ocampo cited City Ordinance No. 1922-2008 also known as Providing Supplementary Rules on the Use of Motorcycle Helmet in consonance with Republic Act 10054 or an act mandating all motorcycle riders to wear standard protective motorcycle helmets while driving, and providing penalties thereof.
Ocampo advised all motorcycle riders to wear helmets to avoid penalties and travel delays.
He said the implementation of the law is for the safety and security of riders and their passengers.
POSO Dagupan will also implement Republic Act 10666, an Act providing for the Safety of Children aboard Motorcycle or the “Children’s Safety on Motorcycle Act of 2015”.
Violators of the Act will be fined P3,000 for the first offense; P5,000 for the second offense and P10,000 for 3rd offense with a one-month suspension of his or her driver’s license.
