Malacañang appealed to local government units (LGUs) to strictly implement the ‘no back ride’ policy for motorcycle riders.
Show cause orders will be issued against mayors whose local governments allow motorcycle backriding amid the community quarantine, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said during an online press briefing Monday.
Roque also called on National Capital Region Police Office chief Maj Gen Debold Sinas to arrest those who violate the measure.
“Doon sa mga LGUs na nagkokonsinti nito, well, siguro puwede silang isyuhan ng show cause order dahil ang pangunahing supporter ng pagbabawal ng back ride is no less than our DILG Secretary,” according to the secretary.
“So mayors, be very careful dahil meron naman supervision ang DILG sa inyo. ‘Wag na tayo lumaban sa polisiya ng no backride,” he added.
