Pillion riding allowed for APORs during MECQ
By Prince Golez
The government has allowed motorcycle back riding for authorized persons outside residence (APOR) during the modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ).
Pillion riding on motorcycles is allowed for work-related travel, according to Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque.
“Bagamat bawal pa rin ang back riding meron tayong isang exemption. Kapag ang pasahero ay APOR at ang byahe ay work-related pupwede pong mag angkas,” Roque said in a virtual presser Tuesday.
“Hindi naman nire-require na mag-asawa pag APOR ang sakay. Ito ay inaprubahan kahapon pagkatapos magpulong ang Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases at mga alkalde ng Metro Manila,” he added.
Roque also said that back riding will be allowed if the motorcycle is installed with the prescribed barrier; privately owned; not for hire; and not hired during the trip.
