Proper Way On How To Ride A Bike Among Children

Last modified date

Past 2yrs, the “Republic Law” 10666 or the “Child Safety Motorcycle Law” was enacted, and the conditions for children to ride a motorbike or a motorcycle were established. I support this law but I don’t know why tricycles are exempt. According to this law, children under the age of 18 can only “back ride” as passengers under the subsequent situation: the foot can comfortably reach the standard toenail of the bicycle. The arm reaches the waist of the motorcycle driver and can hold it. Use standard safety headgear or equipment.

Review From Rappler

According to the data report of Rappler, an online news site, an average of 671 children die each year due to road traffic accidents in the Philippines between 2006 and 2014, according to data from the Philippine Statistics Bureau. 9 and 10-14. In addition, 56% of road traffic accidents nationwide point to motorbike incidents being the cause of death. In addition, the legal requirements for child safety restrictions apply to all private and public vehicles if the problem is safe and means that the vehicle is not safe for children under the age of 12 as currently configured. Must be targeted at children passengers. Ownership and type of use don’t matter. Even franchised cars should be included. You have to be more vigilant in choosing the right gear for your motor to get a better ride and have a big impact on the speed and distance of your ride.

Do all school trucks, jeep, taxis, cars, and buses apply the same rules? If the purpose of this new law is car safety for children, other cars, including motorcycles, can be exempt from these requirements and should not be chosen for private cars. There will be child protection bike seats for motorcycles and bicycles, but there is no need to use motorcycles locally.

By the way, there are thousands of electric bikes and electric scooters in our city. That has been used for work, deliveries, bringing your children to school. But it is no longer safe. Other children go to school using their bike. However, there is no law that can solve this problem. You may need to investigate the bills you want to supervise.
