CITY OF MALOLOS—Provincial officials led by Bulacan Gov. Wilhelmino Sy-Alvarado are now strictly enforcing the “No Helmet. No Ride” policy in all thoroughfares in the province to ensure safe ride and travel to motorists.

Alvarado noted that most of the victims who figured in motorcycle accidents were not wearing safety helmets in a proper way.

Alvarado urged motorcycle riders to strictly follow the provisions of the implementing rules and regulations of Panlalawigang Kautusan Bilang 03-T’09, which the governor authored and was passed when he was still the vice governor and presiding officer of the Sanguniang Panlalawigan.

Under the said provincial ordinance, all motorcycle riders, both driver and back rider, are required to wear standard quality protective helmets when using Bulacan roads. Tricycle drivers are not included.

Violators will be apprehended by the local police, barangay officials and their authorized representatives, the governor said, adding that the measure is aimed to ensure the safety of motorcycle riders, their passengers and the public as well.

First time offenders will be fined with P1,000, P2,000 for second time offenders with possible impounding of motorcycle, possible imprisonment or both defending on the decision of the court.

The provincial government have recently conducted a seminar for barangay officials and local policemen with regard to the implementation of the “No Helmet, No Ride” policy.

Moreover, the month of May was declared as Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. ###
