Senator Sotto wants ban on backriders

A "No Motorcycle Back-Rider Act of 2014," has raised and filed by the Senator due to increasing crime involving back-riders on two-wheeled motorcycles which later on called by netizens as ‘riding in tandem.’

S.B. No. 2344, or the No Motorcycle Back-Rider Act of 2014 will also gives law enforcers the authority to flag down a suspected driver and question them anytime and anywhere.

As what stated in Section 3 of the proposed bill,

"No back-rider shall be allowed on a two-wheeled motorcycle or scooter unless the passenger is the spouse, child or parent of the driver. This prohibition shall not apply to members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Philippine National Police while on official duty and in uniform."
While in the Section 2 of the bill, it states the penalty by imprisonment or a fine of not less than Php20,000 for the first offense and an addition of another Php10,000 for every succeeding offense, will be implemented upon conviction of any violators.

The Senator added, “This may be frowned upon by some members of society, but we have to think of the higher good of protecting the life and limb of our citizens.”
