Motorcycle riders will now be required to have bigger, readable and color-coded number plates after President Rodrigo Duterte signed Republic Act no. 11235 or the Motorcycle Crime Prevention Act.”

Under the law, new motorcycles should be registered by the owners within five days of purchase or face imprisonment or a fine of not less than P25,000.

Owners of older motorcycles, on the other hand, are required to renew their registration and apply for new “readable” number plates before June 30, 2019.

For those driving without the color-coded number plates, which will be based on the region it is registered, drivers may face imprisonment and a fine of P50,000 to P100,000.

The use of or possession of stolen plates will also have a fine of P50,000 to P100,000.

The law also made sure that enforcers can confiscate the motorcycle and it will only be released upon proof of ownership and “payment of the costs of seizure, and compliance with a number plate or readable number plate.”

Law enforcers may also face jail time if they are unable to report or surrender a seized motorcycle within 24 hours.

The law aims to prevent crimes, which are executed using motorcycles. If proven, the owners or drivers of the motorcycles used in a crime may face 12 to 40 years imprisonment.
