More than 10,000 motorcycle owners staged a “unity ride” in Manila yesterday to oppose new regulations requiring them to display larger, color-coded license plates on both the front and rear of their bikes. Signed by President Rodrigo Duterte earlier this month, the law is a response to increased crime by people on motorcycles.
Will the law be effective? Opponents aren’t so sure — noting those who use motorcycles to commit crimes probably don’t use their own vehicles.
