MANILA — Senator Richard J. Gordon today underscored that Republic Act No. (RA) 11235, also known as the Motorcycle Crime Prevention Act, is designed to protect the general public, including motorcycle riders, from riding-in-tandem crime.
Gordon, the law’s author, said the proper implementation of the law should have shielded innocent riders from their dastardly counterparts.
“RA 11235 was passed to protect the public from criminals using motorcycles. It was enacted to protect the innocent from motorcycle-laden criminals by allowing easier identification of specific vehicles used in many crimes, through the requirement of larger, legible, more identifiable license plates,” he said.
