LTO Suspends Helmet Sticker Law
Motorcycle ICC Sticker Law Suspended
The motorcycle ICC sticker helmet law was suspended by the Land Transportation Office (LTO) earlier today, Friday, July 27, 2012.
After the outrages of motorcycle owners from having difficulties of getting an Import Commodity Certification (ICC) sticker from different Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) offices, LTO had suspended the law that would require all motorcycle owners to have their helmet tagged and inspected.
The motorcycle owners rushed at once after knowing that the new law is about to be implemented on September of this year.
With an about 180,000 registered owners, DTI seems to have no capability to serve them all.
With the suspension, LTO officers are instructed to just remind the motorccle riders to have their helmets tagged before the actual implementation of the law, which will be on January of next year.
"The issuance of citation tickets and the imposition of penalties shall commence on 01 January 2013," - LTO's Atty. Alfonso Tan said.
The said action was requested by the DTI that they be given more time up to the end of this year, to complete the inspection of helmets nationwide.
Here on our city, having your sticker be tagged is so troublesome with DTI requiring the drivers to bring their own helmets. That means that you cannot ask any of your relatives or friends to do it for you (considering you have a day job).
Some drivers also are taking ICC stickers from new electric bulb's box or any products where you can see a hologram ICC sticker on it.
