Motorcycle riders are given until July 19 to install the barriers approved by the National Task Force to be used for motorcycle backriding. Until the deadline, policemen will not apprehend couples and live-in partners who are riding motorcycles without physical barriers.

“We will continue monitoring and warning those without barriers while citing or apprehending those with other violations,” said Philippine National Police Deputy Chief for Operations Lt. Gen. Guillermo Eleazar. He also said that said the barriers should be the same as the prototype models of the Bohol provincial government and ride-hailing app Angkas (prototype design of the Bohol provincial government is attached to the motorcycle while the barrier of Angkas is worn by the rider).

General Eleazar also urged motorcycle riders to strictly follow the approved designs of the barriers and existing rules on backriding.

Last July 10, couples, live-in partners and members of LGBT community living under one household were allowed to ride motorcycles again. Aside from the barriers, they are also required to present identification cards and other documents proving that they are living under one roof.
