The Dumaguete City Council may yet be debating on the proposal to disallow motorists from wearing full-faced helmets while in the City but for the Land Transportation Office, full-faced or not, motorists had better have a helmet by November or else…. {{more}}

Roland Ramos, Dumaguete City LTO chief, said he is poised to implement the law requiring motorists to wear helmets by November.

“October is my ‘ceasefire’ month because of the Buglasan. I have a commitment with the Buglasan committee [to allow motorists to drive without helmets],” Ramos said in a dialogue with transport groups last week.

He said that after the festivities in October, the LTO will implement the law. “There will be war after October,” Ramos vowed.

City Councilor Antonio Remollo had earlier proposed a law banning the use of full-faced helmets because most of the motorcycle-riding suspects of unsolved crimes were noted to have worn full-faced helmets, which prevented their identification by witnesses.

Ramos had also said that he would also run after colorum operators starting November, but later said he might decide against it if he sees an effort on the part of colorum operators to legitimize their operations.
