Brothers and Sisters of the road!

I just came from the LTO meeting with Suansing, Jacobo, and Honorable Congressman Teves of Dumaguete.

I'm in between meetings right now so I wont go in to too much details, I'll leave that to our chairman Jobert Bolanos.

But what is clear from this morning's meeting is this:

1. Helmet standards of AO Suspended. Suansing also agreed verbally to a moratorium on helmet standards until 2013!!! Which means that if you buy your helmet now, you'll need to change it after five years anyway so this gives you time to follow safety standards to be dictated by the DTI and implemented by the LTO.

Acceptable helmets have these qualities:
a. is a motorcycle helmet - construction, bicycle, military helmets are not allowed
b. Has a hard plastic outer cover
c. Has a styro inner padding
d. Has inner lining
e, has a secure strap

2. Number of passengers - Suspended until further study of city and municipal roads traffic volume.

3. Modification - SUSPENDED until further study is made on what is deemed unsafe. Offhand, Asec. Suansing mentioned that Chasis alteration and low ground clearance are the things he finds dangerous modifications.

4. Saddle bags and Carrying Aparatus - Suspended.

Guys, it was a different LTO we faced today...they listened, took down notes and Asec. Suansing actually was very upfront with his agreement that some of the interpretation of the original AO was too harsh."

Looks like our efforts from the bike community are bearing fruit. Congrats to all the bikers who joined the bike ride for Cebu. Congrats to CCM. Congrats to CBA Pres. Manny Amador and Eric Du for coordinating and organizing the Cebu movement in this nationwide effort. Congrats to all the bike clubs who took part in this historic moment in upholding riders rights.
