- Under quarantine rules, backriding is banned in any area in the Philippines.
- Now the government has allowed couples to ride the same motorcycle if they can prove that they are married or live together.
- Couples must also follow minimum public health standards like mask-wearing and helmet.
In the Philippines, having two people on a motorcycle has been prohibited as a preventive measure in controlling the spread of the coronavirus. It was only this July that the government changed its policy,but with a specific condition – only married couples are allowed to ride together on a single bike.
A married couple riding along Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City had to present proof of their status to the cops when they were stopped on a checkpoint. It was a practical decision for them to bring the document with them because they might get apprehended by the police if they cannot prove their marriage.
The certificate was carefully covered in plastic sheet in order to protect the document from damage.
As hassling as it is to bring a marriage certificate with them at all times, it’s definitely better than getting apprehended on the road.
Now some couples are coming up with extreme, hilarious ways to prove their marriage – such as sticking their wedding photos on their bikes.
At the moment, the government is still uncertain on how to implement the backriding policy for motorcycles. A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) said that backriding is also permitted for non-married couples, such as live-in partners and common-law spouses.
They have to show documents that prove they live in the same house.
They’re definitely married, no doubt!
According to Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque, “Backriding for married couples is allowed with a shield like the prototype made by Bohol Governor Arthur Yap.
The couple must also follow minimum public health standards like mask-wearing and helmet.”
Under quarantine rules, backriding is banned in any area in the Philippines. Commuters pleaded with the government to permit at least married couples or live-in partners to share the same motorcycle.
