Cooking pot as helmet?

Jul. 10, 19 | 7:16 pm

Some Filipinos have used these kitchen tools to try to skirt the country’s law on the proper use of helmets.

A motorcycle rider went viral on social media after his back rider was caught using a silver “cooking pot” or “kaldero” as an alternative to a motorcycle helmet in Tuguegarao City, Cagayan.

The back rider identified as Rodolfo Chavez Jr., a security guard, and a resident of Solana, Cagayan was issued a citation ticket(a fine of P200) for violating a traffic ordinance of the city.

The city has been strictly implementing the “No Helmet, No Travel” policy since July 1, 2019.

The Land Transportation Office (LTO) has said that some motorcycle riders ignore rules on wearing helmets, thinking they can get away with it.

In 2010, the government passed Republic Act (RA) 10054,which mandates all motorcycle riders to wear standard protective helmets while driving.

Section 3 of the law states that “all motorcycle riders, including drivers and back riders, shall at all times wear standard protective motorcycle helmets while driving, whether long or short drives, in any type of road and highway.”

The World Health Organization (WHO) describedthe use of helmets as “the single most effective way of reducing head injuries and fatalities resulting from motorcycle and bicycle crashes.”
