Philippine bikers protest regulation

MANILA: More than 10,000 motorcycle riders staged a motorcade yesterday in the main highways of the Philippine capital Manila to protest at new regulations forcing them to display bigger license plates, saying the measure would not solve the problem. President Rodrigo Duterte signed the measure into law this month, requiring all licensed motorbikes to display bigger front and rear plates to make them more visible to the authorities and any witnesses to crimes. The font style of plates should be readable from a distance of 15 m and color coded for each of the country’s 17 regions. – Reuters
