Cavite Gov. Remulla says IATF’s back shield design for motorcycle ‘dangerous’ to riders

The governor of Cavite province said the back shield design for motorcycle which was adopted by Inter Agency Task Force (IATF) is “dangerous” and “inconvenient” to the riders. 

“Thank you for the new Backride Policy for Couples. Unfortately, kung sino man ang gumawa ng backshield design instruction ay kailanman hindi sumakay ng motor,” Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla said in his Facebook post.

“It is dangerous, inconvenient and most importantly, it does NOT make sense!,” he added 

“Wasn’t it based on the point that couples who live in 1 house makes transmission less possible? Sana sapat na ang naka-jacket, face mask, helmet, at couples pass mula sa barangay,” Remullar further said. 

Remulla was referring to the prototype design by Bohol Gov. Arthur Yap, which comprises a metal barrier with a screen in front and handles between  the rider and the pillion.   

Currently, the IATF only allowed the back riding or pillion riding on motorcycles for couples who live together, including LGBT who are living in the same house and are live-in partners, provided there is a protective shield between the riders.
