DTI-Capiz Sets Out-of-Town Helmet Inspection PDF Print E-mail
“We are open for requests from the local government units as long as there is no conflict on our schedule,” said DTI-Capiz Business Regulation and Consumer Welfare Division (BRCWD) Head Angelita Colmo.

Last September 28, the helmet inspection and sticker marking was conducted by DTI-Capiz in Sapi-an town which catered 21 helmet owners.

She added there are about 44,000 motorcycles based on Land Transportation Office (LTO)-Roxas City estimation.

Based on the Motorcycle Helmet Act of 2009 which will be strictly implemented on January 1, 2013, motorcycle drivers and back riders caught not wearing the standard protective motorcycle helmet will be fined P1,500 by the Land Transportation Office (LTO).

The motorists’ headgear must be sealed with Philippine Standards (PS) or Import Commodity Clearance (ICC) stickers by next year to avoid penalties from Motorcycle Helmet Act implementers.

The order was originally for implementation on August 1 this year.

However, the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) has ordered LTO to defer enforcement of the Helmet Act until January 1, 2013 upon the request of DTI to give them more time to complete inspection of motorcycle head gears nationwide. (JCM/AAL-PIA6 Capiz)
