During the campaign launching, they joined in the motorcade around Poblacion Lagawe followed by a program and ceremonial distribution of clean rider stickers at the Provincial Police Office at Camp Col. Joaquin Dunuan here.
The Clean Rider campaign intends to curb crimes perpetrated by motorcycle-riding suspects (MRS).
“This is a stern move by the PNP to protect the Filipino people, make our streets safe for the public and dismantle organized groups and other crime elements,” Supt. Gabriel Pablo said.
He enjoined the attendees to support the PNP’s campaign to rid the streets of MRS.
“Clean riders can be considered as force multipliers in your respective municipalities. This is an opportune time to steer the culture of volunteerism and civic engagement in advocating a well-discipline and responsible marshals of the road,” Pablo stressed.
Frederick Kimmayong of the Land Transportation Office in the province encouraged all the motorcycle riders to always adhere to pertinent laws and issuances covering the use of motorcycles for their safety.
“Always have the proper and updated licenses and documents of your motorcycles to avoid penalties and apprehended by authorities,” he said.
A Clean Rider sticker certifies that the motorcycle belongs to a ‘clean rider.’
A motorcycle owner can apply for the sticker at the local police station. He will be required to present the official receipt and certificate of registration of his motorcycle, his driver’s license and other valid identification cards. The motorcycle will also be checked if it has correct engine and chassis number. By Marcelo B. Lihgawon (JDP/MBL-PIA CAR, Ifugao)
