Safety first! Poe backs suspension of ‘Doble Plaka’ Law
Re-electionist Senator Grace Poe supported the temporary suspension of the Motorcycle Crime Prevention Act.
In a media interview during her campaign trail in Rizal, Poe said the law could be amended after revisiting its Implementing Rules and Regulation.
“Sa tingin ko, makakabuti naman, dahil ‘nung ginawa nila ang IRR, siguro puwede nilang rebisitahin ‘yun eh. Marami ngang (opinyon) na pinakinggan nga ng ating Pangulo; tapos balikan na lang natin ang implementing rules. At puwede namang ma-amyendahan sa Senado ‘yan,” said Poe.
The leading senatorial bet stressed that the safety of the rider and his or her passenger should be the top priority in crafting the IRR.
“Kasi hindi ako nagmomotor, at ayaw kong magmarunong na rin. Ang sa akin kasi initially talagang safety ang pinakapangunahin nating dapat isipin,” she added.
