  • Driving a motorcycle without a helmet is considered as an offense in the Philippines.

  • A couple was caught by traffic enforcers for not wearing a helmet for the second time.

  • The woman starts becoming abusive and started to curse and hurt the officers.

For a lot of people, it can be hard to follow traffic rules and regulations. Strict rules like following the traffic lights, crossing on designated pedestrian lanes, wearing seatbelts, and even avoiding texting and calling while driving are not being followed by most drivers.

In the country, where a lot of people are using motorcycles as their main mode of transportation, there is a separate list of traffic rules and regulations that the drivers need to follow. One of these rules is wearing of a helmet at all times. Helmets are not only for rules; they are used for protection in cases of accidents.

Failure to wear a helmet while driving can result to repercussions. For first offenders, there is a fine of one thousand five hundred pesos (PHP1,500). Meanwhile, repeat offenders have a higher punishment. Other than paying up to ten thousand pesos (PHP10,000), the offender’s driver’s license will also be confiscated.

No Helmet, No Problem

No matter how heavy the punishment is, there are still a lot of people who do not understand traffic rules and regulations like the couple in the video taken by a traffic enforcer. In a Facebook video posted by Gadget Addict, a couple was stopped by a group of traffic enforcers in Road 3, Visayas Avenue after being caught not wearing a helmet while driving.

This is also not the first time for them to get a ticket. According to the officer, they have issued a ticket a few hours back for the same offense. Although the highest officer from the group explained the reason for the offense and the importance of wearing a helmet, the woman started becoming abusive and agitated.

She insisted that one of the traffic enforcers is laughing at her. Although she was asked who that person is, the lady is still continuing cursing at an officer.

Protecting the Food They Bought

When questioned why they are not wearing a helmet, the woman said that they used it to hold the Menudo they bought.

Since one of the enforcers is taking a video of the incident as evidence, the woman started becoming violent again and even tried throwing the helmet to the officer.
