New law requires bigger plates for motorcycles

account_balanceMetro Manila chat_bubble_outline0 Comments visibility

President Duterte has signed a law requiring bigger and more readable number plates for motorcycles, primarily to prevent their use in the commission on crimes.

Under Republic Act 11235, or the Motorcycle Crime Prevention Act, the Land Transportation Office is required to produce bigger and color-coded number plates readable from the front, back, and sides of the motorcycle from a distance of at least 15 meters.

The law penalizes motorcycle drivers not using the readable plates with prision correccional, or imprisonment between six months and one day and six years, as stated in the Revised Penal Code, or pay a fine of not less than P50,000 but not more than P100,000, or both.

Under the new law, traffic enforcers can apprehend motorcycle riders and seize their vehicles if these do not have the proper number plates. The motorcycle owner can only retrieve it when he or she has complied with the requirement.

Owners, drivers, or passengers of the motorcycles found participating in the commission of a crime will be punished with reclusion temporal, or imprisonment between 12 years and one day to 20 years, or reclusion perpetua, or imprisonment of at least 30 years.

If a motorcycle is used in the commission of a crime constituting light felony, the owner, driver, or passenger will be punished with prision correccional to prision mayor (jail time of at least six years and up to 12 years).

If the unlawful use of the motorcycle results in death or serious physical injuries, the penalty is life imprisonment.
