Senators Want To Suspend Anti-Distracted Driving Act



Senators would like to suspend the Anti-Distracted Driving Act that is recently being implemented in the Philippines.

The reason for the suspension, they only wanted to make driving safer but the implementation has been very complicated as it has required several things that are quite unreasonable for many. 


"Looks like their officials did not understand the essence of the Anti-Distracted Driving Act. They have made matters complicated, when it is basically just about banning the use of cellphones while driving," -J. Ejercito



 What is RA 10913 or the Anti-Distracted Driving Act?

     "RA 10913 or the Anti-Distracted Driving Act is a new law that prohibits motorists from using communication devices and other electronic entertainment and computing
     gadgets while vehicles are in motion or temporarily stopped on a traffic light or an intersection. A motorist, as defined under this law, is a person who is driving motor vehicle."


The law was passed in order to protect and make driving safer. 

 What does this law prohibit?
    " Prohibited acts made while driving include but not limited to: making or receiving calls, writing, sending or reading text-based communications, playing games, watching
     movies, performing calculations, reading e-books, composing messages and surfing or browsing the internet."







It is meant to prohibit drivers from using the cellphone while driving. But on the implementation, drivers are also prohibited from using the phone to read e-books, play games, or make calls even when the car is not moving during traffic. 

Items on the dashboard is also prohibited, these includes air freshener, decorations including rosary. 

Navigational devices such as GPS, are allowed however it is required that they be placed below the dashboard or to prevent obstruction of driver's view if placed on the dashboard. Driver's however are complaining that it is more dangerous to look down when following the navigation device. 

Can we still use traffic and navigational apps like Waze and Google Maps while driving?

     "Yes. Although motorists are being advised to set their preffered destination on these applications prior to their departure. Gadgets with these applications may be installed in 
     areas that will not obstruct the driver's view. In cases when motorists need to find alternate routes while in traffic, they are advised to first pull their vehicles aside."
