Requiring 2 Large License Plate to all Motorcycles Approved in the Senate

Vehicles involved in crimes can be traced easily if you remember their licensed plate numbers. With motorcycles having one and small license plate in the back, it is hard for some people to notice it, especially at night.  With the aim for easy identification, the Senate unanimously approved on third and final reading a bill that would require motorcycles and scooter to have two large license plates.  Senate Bill No. 1397 or the Motorcycle Crime Prevention Act of 2017, authored by Sen. Richard Gordon and Senate Majority Leader Vicente Sotto III.




Vehicles involved in crimes can be traced easily if you remember their licensed plate numbers. With motorcycles having one and small license plate in the back, it is hard for some people to notice it, especially at night.

With the aim for easy identification, the Senate unanimously approved on third and final reading a bill that would require motorcycles and scooter to have two large license plates.

Senate Bill No. 1397 or the Motorcycle Crime Prevention Act of 2017, authored by Sen. Richard Gordon and Senate Majority Leader Vicente Sotto III.





The bill mandates the Land Transportation Office (LTO) to issue bigger and reflectorized license plates to every motorcycle and scooter in the country to take a "bite out of crime committed with the use of motorcycles or scooters." 

The bigger and reflectorized plate numbers must be placed in both front and rear parts of the motorcycle.

The plate numbers should be big enough to be readable from a distance of between 12 to 15 meters.

The LTO is also mandated to devise a color scheme of the plate numbers for every region to easily identify where such motorcycle was registered, together with an alphanumeric system for easier identification and recollection by the general public.





Under the current LTO rules and regulation, driving without a plate number is prohibited and shall be punishable by 4 months and 1 day up to 2 years and 4 months or a fine of not less than P50,000 but not more than P100,000, or both.

Gordon cited PNP records in 2011 were 1, 069 crime incidents involving riding-in-tandems suspects with 810 killed victims.

This record is higher than 824 recorded shooting incidents in 2010 with 604 killed victims.
