PHILIPPINE CITIES BAN MOTORCYCLE HELMETS

The Manila Bulletin reported that traffic enforcers have banned the wearing of crash helmets by motorcycle riders in the town proper in Batac, Ilocos Norte as a preventive measure against would-be assassins who may use the head gear to hide their identities.

SPO3 Danilo Belendres said that Batac Mayor Jesus Nalupta Sr. ordered the lawmen to
enforce the ban in the wake of several gun-slayings involving motorcycle-riding
assassins who concealed their identities by wearing crash helmets.
