Ako Bicol Rep. Alfredo Garbin laments ban on backriders
Ako Bicol Rep. Alfredo Garbin has added his voice to the chorus of officials calling on authorities to lift the ban on motorcycle back riders.
In a Facebook post, Garbin said he was saddened that the ban has prevented members of a family from maximizing the use of their motorcycle.
This is a burden to those without cars, he said.
He also called the policy anti-poor.
When will the officials understand their plight?
“Nakakalungkot isipin, sa patuloy na pagbabawal sa back riding nang mag asawa at nang kanilang pamilya, nagiging pabigat ito sa mga walang kotse. Nagiging anti-poor ang polisiya,” Garbin posted.
